  • Lynn and family, we were dismayed to learn of Doug's illness and saddened by his untimely passing. Doug was a good neighbour who could always be counted on to keep an eye on our place when we we away at the cottage for a few days or on an extended trip. We will miss Doug's quiet, friendly nature and seeing him out and about on his morning and evening "walk around the block". Doug would often put our daily paper between our front doors, (when we were at the cottage) as he was doing he daily "walkabout". We know that Doug's passing will be a large void in your life. Please know that you are in our thoughts and that we hope that joyful memories will help to ease your sorrow. Take Care. With heartfelt sympathy, Barry & Maggie - Posted by: Barry Konzelman & Maggie Katzeley (We have been neighbours for 33 years. ) on: Jul 20, 2021

  • Sincere condolences on the loss of this very good guy, my first cousin, Doug. I was celebrating my fourth birthday with family, and my Dad got Doug’s Mom, my Auntie Clementine, laughing, and her water broke - at my party! Suddenly, everyone starting rushing around, and my party was over, but the party was just starting for Doug. Fortunately my Dad was home from work that day and his car was running so he took Auntie Clem to the Women's Hospital while my Mom got in touch with Uncle Paul who was at work, to meet them and she stayed with all of the other kids at our place. I have many fond memories of my cousin, especially when he, his sister, Pat and their folks lived for a short while, at my parents’ house during the Winnipeg 50’s flood. I remember Doug’s single minded passion for hot dogs as a kid. We also spent some summers together when my Dad and Uncle Paul jointly rented a summer cottage near the Wallis' cottage at Grand Beach. Good times with close long time family friends who we called "cousins" Craig, Reid and Bruce. We were a close family, and I will always remember Doug’s good sense of humour, his good story telling and his great laugh and smile. Thinking of you all.
