MCCUNE, Douglas (Doug) Roland

McCUNE: Douglas Roland. Doug passed away on December 4th, 2018 at the Kelowna Hospice House at the age of 67. He will be greatly missed by friends old and new who shared his wicked sense of humour, fishing, golf and baseball trips. Doug was made for retirement. In the summer, he golfed, fished and gardened. In the winter, he tied flies, read voraciously, and built incredible projects in his wood working shop with one of his 2,500 favourite songs booming over the sound or powers tools. The rest of the year, he and Sandy traveled, cooked together and enjoyed the wonderful Okanagan. Doug is survived by his loving wife Sandy, their four children (whom he considered his greatest accomplishments) Shane, Meaghan (Denis), Conor and Erin (Lance): grandchildren , Averi, Jackson, Nicolas and Nathaniel; brother Mervyn (Doreen), sister-in-law Janet and a number of nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank all those who cared for Doug over the last five years: Dr. Pamela Allardyce for her unwavering support, the many oncologists and radiation specialists at the Cancer Clinic, the community palliative care nurse and the staff and nurses of the hospice house for their kindness and care over the past few weeks. As Doug was a very private man, he has requested no service, His ashes will be scattered at various place around the world that held a special significance to him. Instead spend a day making memories with your family. In lieu of flowers, pay for a PSA test for every many you hold near and dear. Rest in peace, Doug. You will be in our hearts forever.

    Dear Sandy and Family, Doug was one of those few people in the world that leave a positive and lasting memory. Few have his quick humorous come backs and thoughtful commentary. Such a master at so many things such as golf, fishing and woodwork. We loved having Doug as a friend and neighbour. We will miss him.
    Love, Don and Lynne Spruston

    Sandy; I sit here in disbelief that Doug has passed. I feel so sad for you and the family. I've been thinking about the conversations we had when he got his haircuts. The Vegas trips he loved to go on. He was so concerned about you during his illness and that seemed to be his only fear; how you would cope. Without a doubt he loved his family. I thank you Sandy for being able to visit him in hospice; I will never forget his amazing attitude through this past year. I wish peace and comfort to somehow ease the heartache.

    Dear Sandy and family,
    I was so sad to hear from Glen of Doug's passing. What a wonderful neighbour and friend he was. I will miss his sense of humour and his love of fun! I loved how sweet he always was with you. I am sure there will be some very tough days ahead for you, but I am hoping that you have lots of support from people who love you. You and Doug created such a beautiful community of friends and family because of the kind of people you are. Sending much love, Marilyn Green
