He followed his dad into WWII and later went to the Korean War. Mabel and Doug married and resided in Redcliff where they raised four great children, Darcy, Deanie, Dixie and Stewart. They in turn gave them grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Doug worked at Suffield driving bus, the old fertilizer plant and then on his own with DEW Transport. He acquired tree planting trucks which kept the boys busy. Off to Fort McMurray for 10 years and back to Redcliff for the golden years. Doug had a generous nature and helped where he could. Many pets were a special part of his enjoyment. In 2004 he met and married Gail. He lived in Medicine Hat and lastly resided at South Country Village where he received excellent care. He passed away on February 20, 2014 at the age of 87.
