He was a visionary, a good and kind man, and one of the most humble people I have ever known. His impact on me, on Kemptville and Ottawa families is indescribable. Doug's influence, vision, and friendship will be honoured always. I want to give my sincerest condolences to Doug's wife Phyllis, his sons Ewan and Neal, and his grandchildren. My dear friend Doug, tonight I will pick up a glass and drink a scotch in your honour.

Phyllis - my sincere condolences on the passing of dear Doug. I know it sounds crazy but Cliff and Tony will welcome his company! I will remember his sense of humour and discussing the benefits of being either Scottish or English (as Tony and I were). Take care of yourself, Christine

Phyllis and the entire Hardie family Doug's passing has left a void in your lives that mere words cannot console. For all who knew Doug and worked with him, we feel his loss. Our pain is not like yours but we miss him just the same. "He is not with us but he is not far away " Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Rose and Andre

Dear Phyllis, Ewan and Neal. We were very saddened to learn of Doug's departure from this world. To us, as your neighbours of late 70's and 80's, he was an energetic, creative and almost invincible persona. We watched you build your house together and raise the boys at the same time as we were raising our children. When you moved on to new houses and other projects, we did lose touch, but you will always be out first neighbours to the east and the house still stands as a testament to you all. You are in our hearts and thoughts and we wish you courage and serenity as you go forward. Deepest condolences Valerie and Pierre Dufour

The partners and staff of Hobin Architecture were saddened to hear of the passing of Doug. He was a valued member of the architectural community of Ottawa. Many of us as young architects fresh out of school cut our teeth under Doug's tutelage. He was a gentle man and a gentleman.

Dear Phyllis I can't imagine how difficult the last year has been for you as you watched the love of your life struggle with this terrible disease. I do know that your love and devotion carried some of the weight. Thinking of you and hoping the love of your family and friends, as well as the loving memories of your life with Doug, will support you through this time of sorrow. Hugs Penny

So sorry for your loss Phyllis, It was an honour and a privilege to work for Doug. I am truly grateful for everything he offered me in my professional life. However what I will always remember him for, and be forever thankful for, was his support and understanding as my family went through our own crisis. Lise and I are both truly truly grateful for his overwhelming kindness and understanding. We would not have gotten through it without him. Doug was an amazing individual who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. ALastair and Lise Whitewolf
