Born September 20, 1955 in Victoria, Douglas passed away peacefully at Jubilee Hospital on October 20, 2013 after continuous health problems related to Hepatitis.
Survived by his father and brother; Norman and Michael Newbold of Cobble Hill, B.C., predeceased is his mother Florence Newbold.
Spending many years on the Mainland, Douglas worked for Forting Mines in Trail, B.C., drove for Remple Bros. Concrete in the Vancouver area and did long haul truck driving throughout B.C. before returning to Cobble Hill in 2006.
He will be remembered for his love of motorcycles and the thrill he got each time the rubber hit the road as well as his deep belly laugh that filled the room.
The family wishes to thank those at the Dialysis Unit in Duncan, B.C for taking such good care of Doug for the last few years.
At Doug's request, no service will be held.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
