Doug was a long-time employee at DuPont (Whitby) as an Industrial Mechanic/Millwright, where he was known for his dedication and ability to fix any problem that arose. What was truly special to him was helping family and friends with anything automotive related, always looking for the best or safest product for the best price. Doug was everybody’s handy man. He was often seen detailing cars, riding ATVs, and woodworking. He was seldom seen without his Tilley Hat. Doug truly valued quality time with his family.
