ADRIAN, Douglas Reid
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather during the early hours of January 31, 2005 after a courageous and dignified battle with Cardiac Amyloidosis / Multiple Myeloma. Doug is mourned by his beloved wife of 50 years and best friend Diana; his cherished son Stephen of Vancouver, British Columbia; his treasured daughter Elizabeth; adorable granddaughters Evelyn and Katharine; and son-in-law Bill McMULLEN, all of Boston, Massachusetts. He will be deeply missed by his devoted mother Mabel of Ottawa, Ontario and his loving brothers Philip of Burlington, Ontario and Richard of Chelsea, Québec. Doug was predeceased by his infant daughter Lynda Dale and father Robert Stanley. Doug was born in Hamilton, Ontario November 26, 1930 where at an early age his athletic abilities were recognized. Doug moved to Montreal, Québec where he quickly established himself as a dominant force in the sports in which he participated. Upon graduation, he played his favourite sport, football, in the Canadian Football League as a member of the Edmonton Eskimos. His professional football career, shortened by permanent injury, Doug began his business career with Royal McBee / Litton Industries where he remained for the next 25 successful years. Since 1971, Doug resided in West Vancouver, British Columbia where he enjoyed many years as an executive with Great West Steel / GWIL Industries. During this time Doug was a very active member of Hollyburn Country Club, both athletically and socially. Upon retirement in 1994, Doug became a winter resident of Naples, Florida where he exercised his passion for golf as a member of Imperial Golf Club. He also contributed his time towards the betterment of the community as President of the Wedgefield of Naples Homeowners Association. Travel with his wife to farreaching locations around the world was one of his personal pleasures. During his life, he volunteered his time to amateur sports through coaching, counselling and refereeing. Doug's sense of humour and genuine concern for others made a difference in people's lives. He will be sorely missed by his many Friends and family. We wish to thank the team of doctors at Vancouver General Hospital, especially Dr. Clayton A. Smith, Director of Hematology and his dedicated staff. Also, Dr. H. Thomas Peters and his wonderful staff. Heartfelt thanks to the extraordinary doctors, nurses and volunteers of the palliative care unit at Lions Gate Hospital. At Doug's request, a private family gathering will be held at a later date in Ottawa, Ontario. A memorial gift in Doug's name can be made to the Vancouver General Hospital and University of British Columbia Hospital Foundation for Leukemia / B.M.T. Program 855 West 12th Avenue Vancouver, British Columbia V5Z 1M9 604-875-5240
