Douglas Arlen Moore

1936 - 2021


It is with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected death of our father, Douglas Arlen Moore, at Georgian Bay General Hospital, on Sunday June 13, 2021, in his 86th year.   Affectionately known as ‘Dougie’, ‘Daddio’, ‘Pops’, and ‘Grandpa Doug’, he will be fondly remembered as a loving and supportive presence in the lives of his children Cheryl (Dino), Karen (John), Russell, and Kyle (Vanlata), and grandchildren Blake, Devin, Nikhil, Arlen, Eda, and Keiran. Doug is survived by his eldest brother James, and pre-deceased by his parents Kate and Richard and siblings Ralph, Thomas, and Colleen. 


Family was most important to him, and close friends were embraced with this same sense of loyalty.  He loved nothing more than a get together, big or small.  He had a lively sense of humour and an infectious laugh. Doug had a keen love of sports, as well as music (with golf and jazz being at the top of the list), and enjoyed sharing both of these passions with his children. He dedicated his professional career to civil engineering, and was proud of his many accomplishments in that field.


A private memorial service is planned at Mount Pleasant Cemetery on August 10th.

In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to The Multiple Sclerosis Society or the Georgian Bay General Hospital.  We are deeply grateful for the care and attention provided by the many doctors and nurses at the hospital, who attended to dad in his last few days.

Red Freshie, Golfing, Marco Polo, Swimming, Barbeques, Granny's Farm, Manitoulin Island, the station wagon and time spent with family - these are some of my fondest memories as a child and Uncle Doug, you and your family were a huge part of that time in my life. To this day I often reflect on how special I felt to be "a caddy" on the golf course with you and my Dad - the laughter and jokes. Walking along and getting to play a few holes when were out of sight of the clubhouse - I am glad you didn't use golf carts (although at the time I am not sure I would have thought that) because we would have missed out on that time. It was so much fun - we would all walk and talk. I will always cherish those memories and growing up as part of a big extended family. Life was different back then but bonds were formed and memories were made that will last a life time. Although your physical life on earth has ended, those memories live on in me and the I hope in the other people whose lives you touched and will alway bring a smile to my face. Thank you!

Awh Doug, I will miss our every five week hourly chats.  Yes golf or an old movie would be on.  We would reminisce about the "older days", (he was the same age as my mama) so I just conversed in regard to what I may reminisce with her about. Doug's daughter, Cheryl, is a special friend of mine.  I see her smile and nose in the attached picture to the left.  Approximately 2+ years ago, I have had the pleasure of doing Doug's Nursing Footcare.  He would often fall asleep and rest, which was good.  He loved his foot and calf massage the most.  Peppermint and Tea Tree were his favourite oils added.  He also loved his 'fingernail trim' and hand massage.  I am so blessed to have spent those hours with you Doug.
