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.
