It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Allan Hugh Douglas, after a long illness and surrounded by his loving family and the sacraments of the Church, he was called by God to his reward.
Beloved husband for 53 years of Mary Ellen Douglas, loving and admired Father of Allan Douglas Jr. (Maureen), Maggie Duffy (Brendon), Stephen Douglas (Ashleigh), Jamie Douglas (Natalie) and Laura McAleer (Brendan). Loved Poppy of grandchildren Fiona, Kyle; Brad, Courtney, Brieanna, Keeva and Liam; Colton, Brady and Axel; Rylee, Callum and Piper; Molly and Keira and Great-Grandfather of Sawyer, Ryder and Marleigh.
Allan retired from his work at Queen’s University in the Microbiology Department after 40 years. He was an avid reader of religion, history and fiction. He enjoyed woodworking, stamp collecting and his grandchildren were a special blessing.
