Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Mr. Florko always had a serious demeanour, but his straight face hid a dry wit. I'll always remember watching hockey with him and Steven back in our high-school days. He was a good man, gone far, far too soon. My deepest condolences to the whole family. - Posted by: Campbell MacLean (Friend to Steven) on: Feb 09, 2022
Deepest sympathies to Cathy and your children. Sad to read of Doug’s passing. My brother passed 2 days later suddenly at the age of 64 as well. Thinking off all of you during this sad time - Posted by: Lori Stelmaschuk (Beger) (Friend) on: Feb 05, 2022
Doug taught me and guided me through owning my own business. He was firm but really fair with his employees and always there to help. He taught me many business lessons that I still use today. Great guy, gone to soon. My condolences to Cathy and his family. - Posted by: Jeff Hildahl (Friend / coworker ) on: Feb 05, 2022
