QUEEN, Douglas Thoirs - Tragically taken from us on Monday, March 17, 2014. He leaves his loving wife Trish and two beautiful sons Dylan and Jack. He is predeceased by his father Lloyd and mother Louise. He will be sadly missed by his extended family: David (Diana), Margaret (Bruce and sons Travis and Dallas), Jack (Cathy Ellen and son Harrison), Phil (Debbie and sons Adam and Dawson), Peter (Anne and daughter Sarah), Jeff (Barbara and sons Sean and Stephan), Brian (Pat and sons Alex and Graham) and his twin brother Andrew (Karen and sons Ivan and Lewis). For the past 18 years, Doug was an exceptional music teacher with the Toronto District School Board at Brock Public School. He was loved and greatly valued by staff and the students he so enjoyed teaching. In Doug's world, there was nothing of more value than his family and friends. He will be dearly missed by all. Tributes to remember Doug can be found on Please feel free to share any kind thoughts. A memorial service to celebrate Doug's life will be held Wednesday, March 26th at The Great Hall, 1087 Queen Street West. Visitation from 3 - 5 p.m. and service from 5 - 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the memorial fund at St. Christopher House for their Music School. St. Christopher's has been helping children who might not be able to afford music classes for years. It is in the neighbourhood of Doug's school and would combine his love of music and children. You can designate your donation to "Music School" in memory of Douglas Queen at:
