A true outdoors man, Doug loved his time at the cabin in Partridge Harbour. He was a fanatic about moose hunting, having been present with both Travis and Dylan when they shot their first moose. Just before he fell ill, Doug was proud to have shot this season’s moose.
Doug touched the lives of so many people throughout his life but especially recently with Puddisters and his time working on the ferries.
