I am so sorry to hear about Doug - unfortunately several days too late to express my condolences in person.

I knew Doug as a fellow faculty member at Mohawk College. He was a true professional, and a straight-up, honest friend and colleague to all who worked with him.

I'm truly blessed to have known him.

I didn't know Doug really well, but I had great respect for his courage in fighting his cancer. I enjoyed seeing him Monday mornings and speaking with him before the doors opened up to clients.

I missed seeing him in the last month or so and knew he was struggling.

May he rest in peace.
