Dad first took up tennis in his mid-forties at Long Point and enjoyed the sport so much he formed a committee and funded the construction of a new second court in the centre lands. His enthusiasm for the sport and initiative led to the existence of two excellent courts enjoyed by the cottagers extensively.

Border Collies, Raleigh, Collette, and Bailey were a big part of his life as was his interest in painting where many of his family have treasured possessions of his talent. Many of Doug's Friends have tokens of his artistic ability, sketches and cards etched on birch bark were his forté. For over 20 years Dad encouraged and organized family parties at Long Point, memorable events that will always be remembered and cherished by all of us. His family was his greatest dedication and our love and respect will be his finest achievement.
