Feb 8, 1950 – June 23, 2017

Today I said goodbye to my life partner of 17 years, my friend, my confidant, my business partner and most ardent critic. We had good times, we had stressed times and we had so much fun. We got to see a great deal of the world together and for this you will always be in my heart. I will miss you terribly – continuing on our adventures alone will be difficult, please keep me company and watch over me.

I know you are in a better place. You are at peace and can finally breathe easier and have no pain. Rest easy until I see you again.

Doug is survived by his spouse Janet Carter, his mom and dad, Frances and Gordon Smaill, his three Siblings – Jim Smaill, Barb Brown, Susan Gowers, their spouses and children. He had 5 children, Troy Smaill, Melissa Derbyshire, Meadow McClintock, Lindsay Fletcher and Kyla Smaill as well as one step daughter Shannon Poulton. He was blessed with 12 grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, 8 Ontario St. N., Grand Bend on Friday, June 30, 2017 from 2-4 p.m. All are welcome to come and honour his life.  If desired, memorial donations payable to the TLC (Teresina Larizza Charities ) Foundation  or a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family. Arrangement entrusted to the T. Harry Hoffman & Sons Funeral Home, Dashwood.  Condolences at
