Douglas Roy Dougherty, 93 of Ottawa passed away peacefully on September 4, 2022 holding the love of his life, Margaret’s hand, and was surrounded by family.

Doug, with a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Manitoba, had a long career teaching high school mathematics and computers. Doug loved to jog & coach basketball and was a passionate chess player, ranking in the top 100 in Canada.

In 1962, he met Margaret, and they wed in 1967 and had 2 children, Andrea and David.
