Douglas Theodore Talbot

August 27, 1960 - January 24, 2016


It is with sad hearts we announce the passing of Doug. He was born in the Lower Mainland on August 27, 1960, and moved to Powell River at the age of 15.

Doug graduated from Max Cameron Secondary School in 1979 and returned to the Lower Mainland. He suffered a brain injury as the result of a motor vehicle accident in 1988 and spent years recovering.

Doug moved to Texada in 2012, took up residence at the hotel and was a permanent fixture there. Very much a social person, Doug enjoyed interacting with the patrons. His favourite expression was “excuse me…” at which the standard response he expected was that there was no excuse for him.

Doug was diagnosed with lung cancer in November, and after a short but aggressive bout, succumbed on January 24, 2016. There will be a celebration of life on Monday, February 29 (because it is a leap year and Doug would have liked that), at Royal Canadian Legion Texada Branch 232, from 2-5 pm.
