It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Doug due to complications from Covid 19. He is survived by his sister, Gayle, his brother in law, Gordon, his nephew Mike Nicholaichuk, and niece, Maara Leather. Doug was an accomplished chef, lover of games, cats, growing tomatoes and peppers. He had a quirky sense of humor which provided many happy moments with him. Special appreciation to Damien and Dorci for caring for Doug when he was so ill at home. Doug was a resident of Sherbrooke Community Center for the past 6 or 7 years where he was lovingly cared for by amazing staff, for which we are grateful. Special thanks to the staff and Dr. Hosain.
