Douglas Macdowell

March 22, 1956 - February 11, 2013


 It is with great sadness that our family shares the passing of Douglas Stewart James Macdowell born in Duncan B. C. on March 22, 1956, after losing his courageous battles with cancer on February 11, 2013.

Doug will always be remembered for his kindness and nonjudgementa way. He was the type of man who was always there to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Doug worked as a welder in the forest industry for many years He was a man who took pride in his work and could fix anything, earning him the nickmane “McIvor”. Among his many talents, Doug's favorite things to do was to head fishing for the “slabs” on the west coast. He had some of his best days with his family and friends “slaying the big ones” around the Nootka  Sound area.
He is survived by his wife, Margaret (Maggie), mother Barbara Stone, brother Peter ( Gayle) his two children, Stephanie (Cory) and Ryan, his grandson Hendrix and his step-children and grandchildren Michelle and Ron ( Sage & Taiya) and David & Julie (Michael and Elizabeth). Predeceased by his brothers Steven and Robin (Gopher) and his father Mike.the family would like to thank the wonderful staff of oncology department of the Cowichan distric Hospital; especially Dr. Pewarchuk and Connie who wonderful care for Doug helped him go that extra mile. The family is also very thankful for the valuable, gentle, and caring service provided by the Home Support nurses.
There will no service as requested by Doug and his family.
