Douglas, Wayne Andrew
Wayne passed away peacefully at Lanark Lodge, Perth on Sunday, February 3rd, 2019 at the age of 72 years, with his beloved life partner, Cheryl Von Hagen at his side. He was a loving father of Jennifer (Travis Dowd) and Allison Douglas. Cherished grandfather of Georgia, Norah, Holly, Sydney and Charlie. Dear brother of Sherrill (Colin Smethurst). Predeceased by his parents Andrew and Doris (nee Soper) Douglas. Wayne was born in Montreal but spent his childhood and teen years in Verdun, Quebec. He was a regular at the Dawson’s Boy’s Club, often playing there with his band The Golden Tones, to the delight of many. Wayne moved to Ottawa with his family where he worked as a High-Tech consultant for both private companies and Federal Gov’t departments. After retirement, he was able to realize his life-long dream and settled on Dalhousie Lake with Cheryl, surrounded by nature. Wayne was a kind, loving partner, father, and friend, and always had a brilliant smile, laugh, and wink for everyone he encountered. He touched the lives of so many, and his absence is deeply felt. Family and friends are invited to a Gathering to Honour Wayne’s Life at the Blair & Son Family Centre on Friday, June 7th, 2019 with times to be determined. Those wishing are asked to consider a memorial donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of Lanark, Leeds, Grenville, 115 Christie lake Road, Perth, On.
