November 7, 1939 – January 3, 2023
It is with incredible sadness and a heavy heart that we announce that Stanley “Stan” Eddy Douglas of Shishalth First Nation, born November 7/1939 in Pender Harbour, B.C., passed into the spirit world on January 3/2023. Stanley is the son of the late Archibald Douglas of Salt Spring Island and the late Beatrice Page of Sechelt, BC. He is predeceased by his siblings Wilbert, Winnie, Grace and Muriel. He is survived by siblings Gladys and Reggie.
Stanley was a devoted, loving husband to Doria Douglas and they had the privilege of loving each other for nearly 51 years. Stanley and Doria were the pictures of true love and devotion, a true inspiration to everybody around them. He was a loving Dad to his 8 children: Leona, Stanley Jr, Geraldine, Andrea, Brenda-Lee, Richard, Glenn and Danielle.
Stan was the proudest Papa to his grandchildren Nick, Randi-Lee, Tkia, Jamie, Wade, Cody, Crystal, Kaylin, Kyrian, Preston, Isla, Oliver and Ayla. Great Grandpa to Elizabeth, Nicholas, Naida, Hailey, Nichole, Stanley, Madison, Tyanna, Destiny, Sage and Liam and Great-Great Papa to Hiasson along with many other family and friends.
Stanley was a big man with an even bigger heart, he was a strong family man that loved all of his family. Stan was an avid outdoorsman who loved being out on the water, fishing, swimming and beachcombing, he was also an avid hunter who enjoyed his time out on the land. He worked many jobs throughout his life, as a logger for the Jackson Brothers, a Seaman for the Department of National Defense and as a Deckhand for the BC Ferries. Stan had an infectious personality who touched the hearts of all that had the privilege of knowing him.
Some may remember Stanley as the Can-Am World Arm Wrestling Champion, a softball coach, or for the time he spent playing darts at the Black Bear Pub. Some may remember Stan for his humour, his love for scaring everyone that came to visit or his love for animals and children. Stan was a true champion, a hero to many, and a legend that will never be forgotten.
Growing up and still to this day, I thought that my Dad (Stanley) was the strongest person I knew, I am so grateful to have been raised by such an incredible man. Dad was a true warrior; however, even the strongest of warriors need to eventually lay down and rest.
The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Forrest, and the ICU team at NRGH for taking such good care of Dad in his final hours.
“Now he is everywhere, he is in everything.”
