December 10, 1928

July 25, 2023

Doug peacefully passed away on July 25, 2023, at Bluewater Health in Sarnia, at the remarkable age of 94. Throughout their 70 years together, Doug was a beloved husband to his dear wife Evelyn. He was a loving father to Tracy Foster and her husband Jim, as well as a caring father-in-law to Lee Matson. Among his treasured roles in life, Doug took great pride in being a cherished grandpa to Spencer, Savannah, Ethan, Alyssa, and Olivia. He also found immense joy in being a great grandpa to Syriss and Rhylee.

Doug’s life was marked by significant accomplishments and meaningful connections. He will be remembered for his dedication to his work at Cabot Canada Ltd, where he was employed for many years. Additionally, Doug was an esteemed member of the Sarnia Golf Club. When he wasn’t pursuing his professional or social endeavors, Doug loved embarking on adventures around the world. His journeys took him to places like Florida, Europe, Egypt, and various locations across Canada. He sought pleasure in activities such as fishing, bowling, camping, and creating stained glass projects. Skiing, however, held a special place in his heart as it brought him immense happiness alongside his entire family.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the Personal Support Workers (PSWs), the Dialysis Unit, and the staff at Bluewater Health for their compassionate care towards Doug during his time there. Cremation has since taken place, and to honor his memory, family and friends will gather for a Memorial Visitation at McCormack Funeral Home on August 1, from 12 to 1 pm. A Memorial Service will follow at 1 pm. Condolences and memories can be shared with the family on Doug’s Guestbook at mccormackfuneralhomesarnia.com. Donations, if desired, may be made to the Sarnia Lambton Kidney Foundation or Grace United Church in Doug’s honor.
