July 10, 1940 – March 26, 2012
Douglas passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on March 26th. He was predeceased by his daughter Ingrid Marie, brother Kenneth Larson and will be lovingly remembered by his wife Gerd (June) Stewart, his children Troy, Tim and Kristen (Pete), his brothers Raymond (Helen), Dan and sisters Terry (John), Donna and Marie, grandchildren Savanna, Raya, Teagan and Ben, as well as many other family members and friends. He was raised in Harewood, lived in Cilaire, Cayman Islands, California and eventually moved back to Nanaimo which he always called home. Wherever he lived he was always close to the ocean, one of his many passions in life.
The Stewart family would like to send out a special thanks to all the staff at the Rehabilitation and physiotherapy departments at the NRGH for their amazing care. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
A Celebration of his life will be held on April 2, 2012 from 3pm until 6pm at the Nanaimo Yacht Club located at 400 Newcastle Avenue, Nanaimo.
As we all know Doug always loved a joke, so we invite everyone to come and share a joke or a story. Please take a moment and look out upon the ocean and remember his life!
