Doug (Douglas M) Buck, of Quesnel, British Columbia, passed away on Thursday, November 8, 2012.
Born October 1, 1944, in Minnedosa, Manitoba. Doug moved his extended family to the West Coast in 1970. It was in Sooke, BC, that Doug fulfilled his love of the ocean and built a 30 foot fiberglass boat which he enjoyed for many years. Very much a self-starter, Doug was a commercial fisherman and owned boats up to 100 feet. In 1999, Doug and his wife moved to Quesnel. Before retiring, Doug was self-employed in the logging and transport industry.
Doug showed strength up until his last days with us. He could accomplish anything he set his mind to do. Doug had a dry sense of humour with a special side for his grandchildren. He was a man of simple pleasures and was happy listening to rockabilly music, watching Nascar, being in nature and out on the water.
Doug is mourned by his loving wife of 46 years, Diane, son David, daughter Denise and granddaughters Jordan and Taylor.
A heartfelt thank you to the nurses at G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital for their compassionate care.
