TAYLOR, Douglas Arthur
It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our father and grandfather, Douglas Arthur Taylor, who was born in Vancouver December 8, 1937 and passed suddenly at his home in Qualicum Beach on February 12, 2013. He was predeceased by his mother and father, Marjorie and Frank and many loving grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends, and first wife Petra. He will be sadly missed by his sons Robert (Aggie) and Stuart (Sandra), granddaughters Ayla and Emily, grandsons Andrew and Owen, of whom he was so proud, sister Joan (George), sisters-in-law Dawn Eve and Maxine, brother-in-law Guy and many nieces, nephews, cousins, ex-wife Glenna, and friends made over the years working for CIBC in postings all over the province. After a lifetime career with CIBC, he returned to his beloved Qualicum after retirement. His life was dedicated to serving others, belonging to numerous service clubs and protecting the environment, most recently highly promoting the sustainability of our salmon through his work with Streamkeepers. Doug enjoyed curling, boating and fishing, the comraderie of many friends. A life well lived and regrets there were few. He will be sorely missed by so many and now joins his heavenly family. On March 2 at 11:00 a.m. a public Celebration service followed by reception will be held at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. On March 5 at 11:00 a.m. a funeral and reception will be held at Mount Pleasant Funeral Home, 306 East 11th Ave., followed by interment at Mountainview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations would be welcome by the David Suzuki Foundation or Streamkeepers Qualicum Beach Society.
