Douglas Clarence Sanderson

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, brother and papa.

Doug leaves behind family and friends who will miss him greatly.

He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Bev, his loving children, Sheila and Marc (Tanya), sisters Joyce (Jim) Hannah, Grace Spence, Sandra (Bruce) Wolfe, Darlene (Gerry) Pomanski, brother Billy (Sylvia) Sanderson, grandchildren Daniel, Sarain, Ursa, Otis, several nieces and nephews and his best friend Elsie Saunderson.

Doug was predeceased by his father William (Bertha) Sanderson, mother Margaret (Fred) Fidler, sister Peggy (Gord) Buchan.

Doug was born in Winnipeg on October 24, 1930. He joined the Armed Forces in February 1952 and served for 28 1/2 years. He retired in 1980 as a warrant officer with a C.D., clasp and he also received The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002.

Doug moved to Quesnel in 1980 and worked for the Friendship Centre as their executive director until he retired in 1992.

There is no service by the request of Doug. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

I Am Not Gone

I am not gone

While you cry with me

I am not gone

While you smile with me

I am not gone

While you remember with me

I will come

When you call my name

I will come

When I feel your pain

I will come

On your final day

It could never be

That we

Would never be

We shall always

Be together


I am not gone.
