Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • Doug was a one-of-'kind guy'. Always smiling and had a story to tell...and that sh*t ass grin. He had a big heart and was never afraid to tackle a project or fix something back in the day. Recall a camping trip at Wallace Lake when Doug drove up from Bissett with freshly baked cinnamon buns and his homemade pies. What a treat! Our sincere condolences to the family. Rest well Mookie! - Posted by: Lorne & Louise Lavallee (Friends) on: Jun 14, 2019

See you in the future and keep that whiskey on ice for me please lol. Until we meet again bud .... - Posted by: Brian Miller (Friend) on: Jun 13, 2019

  • Sorry to hear this. Went to high school with Doug and many of his siblings. Condolences to the family. - Posted by: Marion Marko (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2019

  • Doug was truly one of the happiest people I knew. If you were ever feeling he down he could bring you right back up. He was a kind soul and warm smile. He made you feel like there was so much more to life, he made you really want to strive. I will forever miss him and my dad bantering over the BC Lions and the Winnipeg Bombers, because let’s be honest, they both suck haha. Many things will remind me of you in my day to day life and I will cherish all those memories. But tonight I will be having a rye and coke with a sh** load of ice because let’s face it that’s the only way to have it, right Doug? Rest easy friend, and please help guide me on this journey of life. - Posted by: Dominique Golka (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2019

  • Condolences to all the family, especially the siblings who may remember me, on behalf of the Lefteruk family. Not many of us left. I remember little Dougie hopping on the school bus, probably even his first day of school. R.I.P. Doug, - Posted by: Caroline Stevenson (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2019

  • Always had a chuckle with Doug......R.I.P. my friend..... - Posted by: Rick and Alice McRae Petersfield, MB (Friend) on: Jun 12, 2019

  • Doug was an incredible person with a huge heart. Had many, many good times including Camp Morton, Yahtzee marathons and of course our friendly banter between the BC Lions and the Bombers! Will truly miss that. Already do. "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure." With heartfelt sympathy, words fall short of expressing our sorrow for your loss. With sincere deepest sympathy. Shirley and Shadeen Dion. - Posted by: Shirley and Shadeen Dion (Friends) on: Jun 12, 2019
