Born and raised in Toronto, Doug Vaisey was the son of Albert George and Alice Jane (nee Harrison) Vaisey. Following schooling in commercial arts (punctuated by sports and music), he joined the Toronto Star in its editorial room.
When World War broke out, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and spent a good part of his time in England with the Judge Advocate General's division as a court reporter. During that service, he met, wooed and wed Myrtle Eileen Boreham, a Peterborough girl. After VE Day, they returned to this city to work first for the Peterborough Examiner. Doug then worked for the county court system as court reporter and secretary to local county court judges, and later as an administration of justice officer.
When he retired, Doug jumped with both feet into studies at Trent University and into travel, with summers spent in Paignton and other areas in South England. In his early years in Peterborough, he was active in youth work ("It is better to build boys than to mend men."). Later life saw him active in church work, community action, and volunteer work with school libraries, children's breakfast programs, and shelters for the dispossessed.
Doug Vaisey was predeceased by his parents (Albert and Alice) and by his elder brother, Stuart. He is survived by his sister, Eleanor ("Skip") Stiles of Edmonton, and by brother William ("Bill"), recently of Peterborough. His two sons, Doug Vaisey jr. (Cynthia) and Bob Taylor-Vaisey (Anne), granddaughter Miranda (Joe), grandsons Brad, Bryce and Nick, and great-granddaughter Savannah will miss the football bets, the witty anecdotes, and his enthusiasm for their achievements and travels.
The family wishes to thank Doug's many friends, with whom he enjoyed sports, the out-of-doors, piquant observations on politics and the exploration of faith. Gratitude is also due to Dr. David Van Loon and to the staff at Royal Gardens and Empress Gardens who took on his care following his near-death encounter with acute diabetes and his later recovery. We put too little emphasis nowadays on caring professionalism, but the Gardens of Peterborough kept him warm, safe and comfortable.
