  4. Krzysztof Dobrzanski family :

    We will never forget the constant smile on Doug’s face and the warmth that emanated from his gentle spirit. His lifelong love and devotion to his Saviour Jesus Christ stands on permanent record in both, Doug’s lifelong testimony, and in the great Book of Life.
    “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things future, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38,39, NKJV).

    Wishing Doug’s family our greatest sympathy.

    Love, The Dobrzanski’s

Although we will not be able to be with you on Friday, know that our prayers are with you and we look forward to an early opportunity to meet up soon and reflect on his life and good memories we we hold extra carefully at this time. God Bless and strengthen you all.

  8. Doug spent many years between 1993 and 2007 as a Board member and avid supporter of the Southern Alberta Brain Injury Society (SABIS). He was an inspiration and shinning example of what it means to help those in need because it is the right thing to do. This is a significant loss to our community and on behalf of SABIS we sincerely wish the family much love and peace at this very difficult time.

    When the news came of Doug’s passing, we were shocked and saddened. This was so unexpected. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loving family as they mourn the loss of their beloved Dad and older brother. Doug was a special cousin to all the Quantz’. Not only was he one of the older ones we all looked up to, he was genuine, kind and caring. He had a winning smile, cute laugh and eyes that twinkled and so many likeable characteristics. He will be sorely missed and we look forward to the big reunion in heaven.

    So sorry and shocked as I just found out now that Doug had passed away. I went to William Aberhart High School and became friends with Doug. I can remember being over at his house (his parents) and he showed me stacks and stacks of National Geographic magazines. I may have met Doug again either at University or bumped into him downtown as I also was in the oil industry for many years. Doug was a really nice guy with a gentle spirit – he will be missed by this world.
