It is with great sadness that Shannon and Laurie McGillivray (Patrick) announce the sudden passing of their beloved father Colin Douglas McGillivray. Doug passed away peacefully in his home.
He leaves behind his treasured grandson “little Dougie” who was his pride and joy for the last seven years. Doug was predeceased by his parents Dan and Nancy and his brother Hughie McGillivray. He will be missed by his siblings Colleen Woodland, Greg McGillivray (Kelly), Frank McGillivray (Pam), Gene McGillivray (Robin), Cheryl MacKenzie (Neil), Danny McGillivray (Nancy), and Shannon MacIsaac. Doug liked to say that he was the favourite uncle to Hughie, David (Vicky), Molly, Clare, Mark (Alisha), Adam (Shardeigh), Kristen, Kyle, Dylan, Connor, Ian, Morgan, Madison and Marley. Great uncle to Luke, Liam and Gavin. Doug was a special uncle to Sean (Krista) and Jason McFarling (Keri) and great uncle to their children: Logan, Abby, Hunter, Mazy and Cormac. Doug will be fondly remembered by Maureen McGillivray and was a special friend to Lynda McFarling and Gary Husband.
We will always remember Doug for his quick wit and wonderful sense of humour. Everyone who knew him said that he would give the shirt off of his back to anyone.
His children are respecting his wishes that there be no service.
