Obituary of Douglas Newsham

Newsham: Douglas Paul

February 13, 1974 - February 17, 2024

It is with sadness in our hearts that we share Doug's passing, due to complications from diabetes. Doug had just celebrated his 50th birthday, hearing the singing of his nieces over the phone.

Doug was the youngest son of Glyn (deceased) and Susan Newsham, brother to Heather (Keith) and Greg (Taryn), and uncle to Connor, Cameron, Evan, Aurora, and Abra.

During his life Doug enjoyed bowling, church activities, and all kinds of games. Being with family was very important, often requiring him to travel many miles to be with them. Doug will always be remembered by his quick and warm smile.

Our time with him was too short, and we will miss him deeply. We take assurance in the knowledge that he is now with Jesus.

Donations made in memory of Douglas to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank would be appreciated by the family.
