HOWARD DOUGLAS (DOUG) CARTER

Carter, Howard Douglas (Doug)

He passed peacefully away at Berwick On The Lake on March 9, 2016. Doug was born in Lloydminster, Sask. on January 24, 1917 and moved to Powell River with his family in 1924. He was educated at Henderson Elementary and Brooks High School.

He began work in the logging industry in 1934 and he worked for many companies in the Powell River/Stillwater area. After his retirement from the woods industry, he was employed as a city bus driver in Powell River. Doug worked tirelessly in his garden and grew huge quantities of fruits and vegetables for his family’s enjoyment. He cut his own wood from his large property and his wood piles were a work of precision. He enjoyed many road trips with his wife, Jean, in Canada and the United States. Doug and Jean moved to Berwick on the Lake in Nanaimo in 2007 to be closer to their family. The family wishes to thank the staff at Berwick for their excellent care. Doug was predeceased by his wife, Jean, his sisters, Anne and Kate and his brothers, Bob, Don and Hugh. He is survived by his son, Fred (Margaret), his granddaughter, Lesley (Jeff), his great-granddaughter, Olivia, and great-grandsons, Lucas and Jackson, all of Nanaimo. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Noreen Sandel of San Diego, California.
