Douglas was born in Camrose AB., and lived in beautiful Kananaskis Country, Drayton Valley, Rocky Rapids, Entwistle and attended high school in Evansburg AB.
Doug served in the Navy at the age of 18 and had many stories of his world travels. He attended commercial flight school but found his calling as an LPN. The staff at the Good Samaritan Society shared stories of Doug’s caring nature, always willing to lend a hand or offer help.
Doug enjoyed the freedom of his Yamaha Virago motorcycle and enjoyed working out and staying fit.
The family would like to thank Dr. Murphy and the staff at The Good Samaritan Society for the loving care and attention they gave to Douglas. Their dedication, kindness and professionalism are an asset to our community.
