Dearest Ann,

Our deepest condolences on the loss of Douglas. He was a gentle, caring person and we always picture him with a smile. A beautiful person inside and out. We were so blessed that you brought him into the family.

I know that Mummy would also be sending her love and hugs. She was very fond of Douglas, as we all were.

Love and hugs from your Peterborough family.

Dougie Wougie
Uncle Dougie came into my life when I dated and later married his niece Karen. It was to become a 37 year friendship which I can only treasure
Dougie came to live in St Lucia in the early 1990's as the head of the government Planning & Architectural Department and quickly introduced a level of professionalism and work ethic his peers and staff to this day remember
While here he designed and built the Castries market ( which this week the government opened an extension complementing his original design), the Customs excise building, two private homes ( I know of ) and finished the preliminary design of a hotel for the east coast
I worked and lived in Vieux Fort that time and Dougie in his usual giving and selfless manner designed and supervised the renovation of our new home in Castries.
Dougie arrived in St Lucia as Karen's uncle but very quickly became Uncle Douglas to the entire Beaubrun family
We were all touched by his love, compassion, selfless demeanor, loyalty to family, and sympathetic ear.
Dougie was the quintessential family man
His visited us a few weeks before he passed and even then his concern was not his prognosis but insuring he wasnt inconveniencing anyone
There were many blessings in his long life and non more than wife Ann
We miss him and will treasure the memories
To dougie
..the family man
..the gourmet chef
..the cricket lime enthusiast
..the story teller
..the loyal friend to so many
We miss and love you

UNCLE DOUGIE

Kind, caring , giving , master chef, beautiful smile, eyes that sparkled, loved a good joke playing cards and sports.

He cherished his wife, children, and other family members. A loyal friend.

These are the thoughts that come to mind when you think of this special person.

He will be missed.

Uncle Dougie. my Canadian Uncle, as I often referred to you. I will so dearly miss you. Hanging out at cricket, liming and playing cards and tasting your cooking.
Your heartwarming smile, the way those grey eyes lit up when around family, that familiar but unusual laugh that was unmistakably yours, the saga-boy walk, I admired your love and commitment to Ann and Michelle, Monique Kirk and your grand children. You were a unique person.
Even though we were not close as I grew up in TT, I felt a kinship to you as I became a young man living in Miami. You provided a place of of wisdom and reflection for me You always saw the better side of things and for this I will always love and miss you.

Today, we celebrate the life of Douglas who passed away on May 13th in Winnipeg. Ann and I met a few years ago and continued our friendship over the years, even from Winnipeg. I do not know Doug very well, but he was a gentle soul with a wonderful sense of humour. I was happy Ann and Doug spent 2 weeks with me on their way home to Winnipeg from St. Lucia, in March.
The photo was taken last September 2019 in Stratford, Ontario on one of our outings while they were visiting.
May you forever rest in eternal peace dear Doug, with the angels.
Go in Peace. Love and prayers to Ann and family.

The Tunapuna family of that bygone era have dispersed, and are now fading away one by one. The McFarlanes were one of the best, not least among them, Dougie. May his soul Rest In Peace.
