In his early years, Doug was an accomplished athlete and fastball player and travelled extensively throughout Canada and the U.S. with his ball team. Doug was a dynamic and passionate leader in the toy industry for over 30 years. Though his success made him an admired individual, it was his ability to forge deep and meaningful friendships with people from all areas of his life that made him truly remarkable.
He had a profound respect for people from all walks of life and quickly endeared himself to others through his charismatic personality. Doug faced his cancer diagnosis in July with great strength and courage. Very special thanks to Dr. Kristen Jones of Gravenhurst, RVH Regional Cancer Centre and the South Muskoka Hospital staff for providing such personal care and especially to all his caregivers who made it possible and comfortable for him to be at home.
