MacDONALD, Douglas Murray McDonald - On Thursday May 7th 2020, in his 85th year, Douglas Murray McDonald passed away suddenly at Oshawa General Hospital.
Doug was born in Beaverton, Ontario on March 16th 1935.
He married the love of his life, Stella McDonald (nee Kuzyk) in 1956.
Doug and Stella enjoyed sixty-four wonderful years of marriage and together raised their five children; Dale (Michelle), Kelly (John), Lori (Ken), Todd (Bonnie), and Jayne (Gary). Doug was a dedicated family man, and a proud employee of Bell Canada.
He spent many years residing in the Guildwood neighborhood of Scarborough while his family was young, and often reflected on his memories of this time in his life very fondly.
Doug was a loving grandfather to ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren: Tracy, Leanne, Ashleigh, Kurtis, Samantha, Lyndsy, Travis, Brooke, Shane, Scott, Bodie, Cameron, Ryder, and Zoey. He was also a devoted uncle and great-uncle.
He was a wonderful brother-in-law, friend to many, and brother to Bob (Lynne). He is pre-deceased by his younger sister, Diane, and his mother, Dorothy.
Along with his love for his children and grandchildren, Doug’s love for Stella was unmatched; they did everything together.
Doug was loved by so many, and will be missed terribly. He was an incredibly gentle and generous man, with a great sense of humour. He was a role model, a beacon of light, and an exceptional person altogether.
Douglas Murray McDonald was one-of-a-kind, and will never be forgotten.
A celebration of Doug’s life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Diabetes Canada..
