This is a sad time for everyone but you will have many wonderful memories and stories to share of how he lived his life and how much he meant to each of you.

    Jill, Bob and I are so sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. Our thoughts are with you and the family. We have not touched base in a long time but I always think of you both when we go for a walk around Sunrise Way. Doug did so much to help Priddis Greens when it was in its infancy. I also remember the times we played tennis at the Glenmore Club all those years ago. Life passes by too quickly. Take care
