DOUGLAS COLIN WEST (published on January 16, 2010)

DOUGLAS COLIN WEST JR With extreme sadness and heavy hearts we announce that our father, husband, son, brother, uncle and good friend Douglas Colin West JR. has lost his long battle with cancer on January 15th, 2010 at River View medical center. As sad as we are to lose Doug we are glad that he is no longer suffering and has reunited with his father Douglas SR. and good friend Ed George. Left to mourn his loss his wife of 24 years Tannis and their children, Deanna, Kaitlyn and Zachary, mother Edna (Neil), sister Nicole Penner (Dennis) and their children, in-laws Lawrence (Ziggy as Doug called him) and Evie Sigurdur, Sharon and Kelvin Rempel, Troy and Leah Sigurdur, as well as Trevor Sigurdur who was not only his brother-in-law but also his very good friend. Doug had many nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles all of whom will miss him dearly. Doug was one of the nicest people you'd ever have met. He had many friends. Tannis and her children would like to thank all of his friends for their phone calls and support throughout Doug's illness. A special thanks goes out to Doug's long time friends Don and Cindi for many years of friendship, and always being there. Thanks too, to Ron and Laurie for all you've done for us whether it was fixing the vehicles or completing our home renovations, when Dad wasn't strong enough to finish. You eased his mind. Doug always looked forward to his Sunday morning breakfast and golf with John and THE BOYS! We would also like to thank Fay and Mickey and Val for being there to talk to no matter how many times a day or how late. Thank you to all the doctors, and nurses that helped Dad fight as well as the staff at Concordia who got to know him. MaryAnn our home care nurse you are amazing! And to all the staff that took care of Dad at Riverview when he could no longer be at home with us. Doug was always a busy person, he was always on the go whether it was: fixing a vehicle, watching curling, going golfing, meeting a friend at Robins for coffee or grabbing a bite to eat at Thunderbird, he kept going no matter how tired he got. Now he can put his feet up and relax. He will be forever missed and in our hearts. A service will be held at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St. on Monday, January 18, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. The clock of life is round but once And no one has the power To tell just when the hands will stop On what day or what hour Now is the only time you have So love it and live it with all you've got Don't wait until tomorrow The hands may be stopped
