Storey, Douglas Haydn  
STOREY - Douglas Haydn Douglas Haydn Storey's long life ended February 3rd in his 99th year. He passed away peacefully after a short illness. His quirky wit and ready song, quiet compassionate nature and constant desire to help others will be missed by all who knew him and especially by the family that he loved so much and who loved him. He was born November 1916 in Stratford-on-Avon, England to the late Joseph Haydn Storey, a painter and performer, and May, an actress, who tragically died a few years later. The family including his father, step-mother, Nellie, and sisters Aulga, Irene, Muriel and Rose, emigrated with Doug to Canada in 1927 when he was 10 and settled in Saskatoon, SA. At 14 and with only grade 8 education he left home to make his own way during the Depression but he persevered and earned a pilots license prior to joining the RCAF as a aircraft mechanic and flight instructor in 1941. That same year he married the late Kathlyn Marsh with whom he raised four children. After the war they settled in Port Alberni, BC where Doug had an automotive dealership and later was a real estate agent. He was a Mason, Legion member, avid ballroom dancer and Elder of the Presbyterian church. In his later years he lived in Chemainus and Victoria, BC. He is predeceased by his wife, siblings and youngest son, Richard Storey, and survived by his children: Glenda Fortin, of Vancouver; Barbara Mercer, of Qualicum Beach; and Brian Storey, of Victoria along with 6 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Thank you to the many kind staff of Oak Bay Lodge for their years of caring for and watching over Doug. A private celebration of life will be held on March 1st.
