FOX, Douglas (Doug) Randal

July 10, 1971 – Calgary, Alberta
June 15, 2018 – Okotoks, Alberta

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Doug Fox announce his passing on June 15, 2018. He was taken way too soon after a courageous battle with cancer.

Doug embarked on a career in the Canadian drilling industry, with his most recent ten years as a sales manager at Precision Drilling. He was a great man with a huge heart, full of love for his family and friends and enjoyed spending time outdoors, especially at the cottage.

Doug will be lovingly remembered by his wife and high school sweetheart, Michelle; their two daughters, Mackenzie and Madison and his beloved dog Scout. Doug is cherished by his three sisters and brothers-in-law, Jodi and Darryll Taylor, Amanda and Brad Mushet and Tammie and Calvin Seward; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Kori and Greg Davidson and brother-in-law Elvin Tetzloff; his seven nieces and nephews, Dylan, Sean, Kyla, Dannika, Dawson, Tanner and Payten; his grandparents, Edna and Art Hanke, and his parents in-law, Jeanette and George Hofer. He is also survived by several aunts and uncles, including a special relationship with his uncle and aunt, Art and Gwen Hanke. Doug also leaves to mourn his loss, many cherished friends and neighbors. He was predeceased by his mother, Beverly Fox; grandfather Robert Culling; and his aunt Brenda Warnke.

A Celebration of Doug’s Life will be held at First Alliance Church (12345 – 40th Street S.E., Calgary, AB) on Friday, June 22, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the church.
