Dear Elaine, Marge and families, I was formerly June Countryman, and just informed of Doug's death. When looking at Doug's photo it sure brought back memories when we were all in our twenties. The last time I spoke with you Marge, you indicated that Doug was not well and hopefully he did not suffer too long. Everyone is in my thoughts and prayers. June Timanus

Doug loved being outside, and he looked forward to deer hunting each year. He was a member of the Sugar Bush Hunt Club near Almonte

Doug was a friend and valued member of our hunt camp as well as a significant volunteer contributor to our family business. I will miss his sense of joy and humour as well as the annual Bear Reports from our hunting woods.

Very nice souvenirs from Doug since I started working with him at NCC in the 1987...Doug was a model of dedication working at the best management of NCC Lands, particularly for the protection and enhancement of the Greenbelt. Also remember when Doug told me to come at your place in Kars to get some raspberries shrubs for transplanting in our garden. There still very productive!!! My sincere condolence to Elaine and family.

We will miss Doug. He was a very good friend of our family and we have many fond memories of Doug's visits. Doug went the extra mile to help us when our sugar camp was destroyed by fire in 2006 and we will not forget him. Our condolences to all the family.

Elaine: We were both so sad to hear. We wished we had taken the many chances to stop by and see you both. We remember the welcome smiles and good times. Doug was a kind and good guy, our good fortune! Best wishes for the future, hope to see you when we return.

My family and I are devastated to hear of Doug's passing. What a loss. My grandchildren always said there goes Santa Clause as he whipped past the rocks in his motorboat waving happily. Doug gave me invaluable advice and information regarding cottage renovations and everything else. What an unforgettable, kindly, cheerful and wonderfully helpful man. Doug will be missed but forever celebrated. Our deepest sympathy to you all. Marny and All The Browns

I am in Singapore and received the news of Doug's death this morning. I am absolutely shocked and totally saddened. Doug was my boss (although he hardly acted like it) for a number of years back in the last century and I don't think I could have had a more dedicated, determined, considerate, intelligent and passionate mentor. He was a true leader and I thank him for all that he taught me (except for his getting up at 530 AM part). We worked, planned, problem solved and delivered projects together, accomplishing many good things, without the formality or rigidness often found in the public service but with much laughter and fun. Every time I passed through Rideau Township in the past few years I often wondered what Doug was up to - but regrettably - I never stopped by. My mistake. Just a few months ago we were gong to Toronto and I cast an eye towards the Log Farm, one of Doug's most cherished projects. It seemed to be abandoned and in disrepair. I thought of how Doug would have felt - it was one of his babies at the NCC, he worked tirelessly to make that a Greenbelt treasure for families and kids. He always left a significant legacy wherever he was involved, he was not a bystander and always gave his all. Even though I have not seen him for many years, I will miss him and keep warm memories close. My deepest sympathies to Elaine and the kids and the whole family. He was a keeper, and I am sorry he is gone.
