NAKAMA, Douglas

Posted: January 21st, 2022


DOUGLAS ALLAN YONEO NAKAMA, of Lethbridge, passed away suddenly at home, on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at the age of 70 years.

Doug is survived by his children that he had with Peggy – son Aaron (grandson Jack), son Eric (grandsons Kyler and Griffin), son Brock (Liisa and granddaughters Katriina, Hailey, and Lauren), and daughter Kari (Brad, grandson Noah, granddaughter Chloe, and youngest grandson Blake). He is also survived by his brother Ken (Maureen), sister Pam (Al), brother Cam (Denise), and sister Shawna (Rick). Doug loved his family and always made time to attend family gatherings, and bonding over sports. It’s certain that his love of sports continued later in life, playing Oldtimers hockey and golfing with his buddies out at Picture Butte Golf Course. A loving big brother and protector – whether he was your brother, father, friend, grandfather, relative, teammate, or at the rink, diamonds, the golf course, or the finest skate sharpening – he will be missed by many.

A Come and Go Celebration of Doug’s Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendance will be limited to 50 guests per 30 minute time slot. Kindly RSVP your attendance to Cornerstone at 403-381-7777 or care@
