DEVEAUX, Doug Deveaux   -  It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden departure of our beloved Douglas “Doug” John Deveaux, of Oshawa, Ontario on September 14, 2021.

Doug was taken too soon at the age of 54, passing away in the arms of his soulmate, and was joined by his loving family on his final farewell from this life. 

Doug was a lifelong musician and much loved and respected member of the Canadian Country Music family.

An accomplished guitar player and singer, he began his professional career at a young age, performing on many stages across the country and touring with Terry Carisse and other top acts on the country music scene.

A constant fixture on the Ontario Jamboree scene, Doug’s Sideman Studio also provided sound, lighting and production for many live music events, theatre shows and local music venues.

Although he was admired greatly for his skills, it was his always generous and helpful nature, encouraging support and unwavering dependability that will be remembered most by so many. 

Although there will be no new memories made, we treasure the many beautiful ones we have and hope they sustain us until we meet again.

His laughter is the most beautiful music he left behind. 

Doug joins his mother Agnes (predeceased) and will be forever missed by his soulmate and partner Angèlle Deschamps Ritchie, son Brandon and daughter-in-law Jessica, father Clarence and partner Linda Keirstead, sister Denise Weatherall, nephew Tyler and partner Michelle, and Todd Keirstead and Julie Kee.

His many cherished aunts, uncles, cousins and the vast musical family he leaves behind will remember him always. 

Funeral arrangements with the DeStefano Funeral Home, Oshawa, on Wednesday September 22nd from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. A Funeral Service will follow in the Chapel at 7:00pm.
