With great sadness the family announces the passing of Douglas Ernest TOUGH on Sunday December 30, 2007 at the Ian Anderson House, Oakville, Ontario in his 89th year.
Beloved husband of Betty (née PERDUE) for 62 years, loving father of Jeanine, Douglas, and Graham, and their respective partners, Don THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Domenica and Rosemary; grandfather of Cathy MONTEITH (Mark) and James McKAY (Cindy); Kristi, Jenny, Douglas and John TOUGH, Ginny HOMEWOOD (Josh), Lindsay (Alex FRIEL), Lesley, and Graham TOUGH; and extended family Kaelen (Paul STEPHENS,) Christopher, Rob (Anna ESCHER) and Michelle THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON: great-grandfather of Adam and Ellie MONTEITH and Liam McKAY, brother of Barbara JONES of St. Catharines and Uncle to Susan McGRAIL- HAGGAR. Brother-in-law to Dorothy MARTYN of Mississauga and Uncle to Jennifer and John.
Born in Montréal to Ernest and Lucy Davis TOUGH he moved to Toronto where he was captain of his football team at Vaughan Road Collegiate and also played for the University of Toronto where he graduated in Metallurgical Engineering in 4T4.
He held executive positions with Westinghouse Canada in Defense Apparatus, the Motor Division, and laterally the Atomic Power Division in Port Hope. He served as joint chair of the American and Canadian Nuclear Power Associations in 1968.
A fine athlete he enjoyed football, hiking, scuba-diving, skiing and golf at the Oakville Golf Club, badminton and tennis at the Oakville Club; Doug was also an avid swimmer at his beloved Balsam Lake and in their condo pool in Florida. 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. The Association in his honour have named the annual Cup and Saucer mixed doubles championship the "Tough Trophy".
Upon his retirement he and Betty enjoyed many years of travel, to Europe, China, Russia, Indonesia and many cruises in the Caribbean, barge trips along the canals of France were a highlight.
His special delights included reading in his solarium on Spruce Street, his residence for sixty years, listening to classical music in the sunroom of his cottage on Long Point, Balsam Lake and discussing philosophy with his many grandchildren during family dinners and parties.
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.
Our special thanks to Doctor Ken Collett, for his care and support to Doug and the family, he is truly a credit to his profession. We also want to thank the many compassionate caregivers at the Ian Anderson house for their dedication and commitment in making Doug comfortable and safe during his stay at their Hospice. The Ian Anderson House is a fine facility offering a quality and dignified last stay and their efforts towards serving the positive and their beautiful environment make for comfortable quality end-of-life care.
Following his wishes there will be a family service only. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Ian Anderson House 430 Winston Churchill Blvd., Oakville, Ontario L6J 7X2 or and condolences may be sent to
