Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Douglas Hallowell at age 58 on January 10, 2021. He is lovingly remembered by his mother, Merelyn; children, Ciara and Brad (Stefani); grandson, Noah; sister and brother, Lynne (Keith) and Ken (Lesley); nieces, Heather (Steve), Colleen (Mike), and Ashley; and all of his extended family and large network of friends. Doug was predeceased by his father, Morley, and his loving son, Kyle.

Doug, or “Dougie” as he was known to most, was a jack-of-all-trades. He could build anything, fix anything, and sell ice to a polar bear. Doug was a very warm and caring person – even on the darkest of days, he was a beacon of light. He loved being around people and never shied away from a good party. He was always smiling from ear to ear, joking around, or telling one of his famous stories. Doug was happiest sitting around a campfire with a cold beer, snowmobiling with friends, and being out on his boat on the Georgian Bay (or the “Bay” as he called it).

Doug had a playful yet competitive spirit. He loved playing card games and cribbage – especially if there was money on the line. He was always so excited to play (and win), but also very patient and willing to teach anyone who showed an interest in learning how to play. His mannerisms and sayings around the cribbage board were legendary (“Fifteen for a DUECE!” or “And that’s a DOZE!”).

Doug was fiercely proud of his boys, Kyle and Brad, and his grandson, Noah. He also had friends that crossed the spectrum of life, from childhood friends to work colleagues, and everyone he met in between. He took an active interest in the lives of his friends, family, and even strangers. It didn’t matter who you were – Doug would do whatever he could to help, offer advice, refer you to a friend (“I know a guy”), lend you tools, or fix something for you.

We will all miss Dougie greatly.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a private family service will be held, with a public celebration of life to be held at a later date. If desired, donations can be made to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation (https://www.msh.on.ca/foundations/uxbridge-cottage-hospital-foundation) in his name.
