Doug retired as a Major Crime Officer with the Ottawa Police after 33 years, and later was a Background investigator for the Ottawa Police. Doug enjoyed playing euchre with many groups he belonged to and was still playing hockey with some fellow retired police officers.

To the family , Helga and I wish to express our deepest sadness and condolences. Although it has many, many years, while growing up with Doug I was always impressed how Doug reflected the grace and patience of his Dad. When he entered a room he captured your attention with his kindness and caring spirit. He gave Helga and I a Police test for how well you follow instructions. Sadly, I failed but Helga was approved. He was very kind to me and my wife, Helga. I will miss Doug. His life counted for good.

Dear Chris and family, we were shocked and so very saddened to hear of Doug's passing. He was such a great friend, a good and decent man and more than anything else an outstanding human being. I was lucky enough to have been one of Doug's euchre teammates for the last 10 years or so and I will always remember fondly all the great laughs and good natured kidding and joking around we so looked forward to. He was an avid sports fan and loved his Ottawa 67's and Senators. The fun took on new heights when the 4 four of us along with Kathy and Joe Foley formed a his and hers set of teams at the Bells Corners six-hand euchre league. How we so enjoyed it when the girls played against the guys. Doug will forever be missed by everyone who knew him.
