John Douglas Brand
Dec. 28, 1937 –
March 5, 2006
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Doug Brand. He left us peacefully at the Port Hardy Hospital the morning of March 5th. Doug is survived by his mother Betty Brand, sister Margret (John), brothers Ken (Nancy), and Gordie all of Port Alberni. His children Sam (Sue), of Ottawa, Kathy (Bill), and Rob of Port Hardy, and their mother Karen. Grandchildren Shawn, Greg, Bryan and Zack, step grandchildren, James and Carter, and many nieces and nephews.
Doug enjoyed many years of boating and fishing in the local waters. His love of “the mechanical” gave him many hobbies over the years from stock car racing and repairs to flying model airplanes. His green thumb was also appreciated in the garden and his helping hands will be remembered by many.
He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and we hope that you can join us in a celebration of his life to be held March 25th, 2006 at 1:00 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 237, located on Fort Rupert Rd, Port Hardy.
