George Douglas "Doug" MacDonald

February 6, 1924 - January 2, 2020

|

Sydney

Age 95, of Sydney, passed away peacefully in the Palliative Care Unit of St. Martha’s Hospital, Antigonish on January 2, 2020 following a short illness.

Born February 6, 1924, in Sydney, he was the only son of the late Daniel Nathaniel MacDonald and Gertrude May (nee Forrest) MacDonald.  Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Doris in 2013 and their only son, Bill in 2017.

Doug was born and grew up in Sydney and lived all of his life there at 534 Charlotte Street.  Following his father’s career, he was a travelling salesman and agent for several companies faithfully serving his many clients and customers throughout Atlantic Canada well into his 70’s.

Doug is survived by his loving and devoted New Zealand family, his daughter-in-law, Diane Mary; grandson, Hamish (Natalie) and their children, Chloe and Avah, all of Christchurch. Their phone calls to him every Saturday evening were the highlight of his week.

Sincerest gratitude to the very dedicated caregivers of New Dawn who supported Doug throughout the last several years and to his loyal neighbour and true friend, Rafael, whose constant presence gave Doug much comfort and joy.

Cremation has taken place. At Doug’s request there will be no visitation. A graveside service will be held at Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney in the Spring.

Memorial donations in Doug’s name may be made to a charity of choice.
