                                            HAYES – Douglas Charles

                                          October 15, 1945 – May 26, 2013


On May 26, 2013, at age 67, Doug was welcomed into Heaven by his Savior, Jesus Christ, his parents, Charles and Eva Hayes and his precious granddaughter Rebecca Coukell.  He will be greatly missed by his wife of 43 years, Sharon, his daughters Carolyn (Michael) Kaiser, and Kathryn (Gary) Coukell, and grandchildren Owen, Daniel, Samantha, Stephen, Justin and Elizabeth as well  as his siblings  Carol (Bob) Benson, Gerald (Gloria) Hayes, Dirwyn (Darlene) Hayes and Colleen (Karl) Skjaveland, and extended family. Doug was born Oct 15, 1945 in Blind River Ontario. He graduated from Wilfred Laurier University with an Honours Business degree in 1970. His entire career was with Mutual Group Financial Services with many years as the Branch Manager in the Lower Mainland. Doug was an encourager, a man of prayer and wisdom, a lover of his family and a true friend. He was active in his church and community.  He loved the outdoors. In 1997 a massive brain hemorrhage changed the life he had known. Even with visual, cognitive, and mental health challenges, this man of faith and gentleness continued to touch lives with encouragement and hope. His final months were shared with the beautiful staff and residents at Eagle Ridge Manor. Please join us in a celebration of Doug’s life to be held this Monday, June 3 at 1:00pm at Willingdon Church, 4812 Willingdon Ave., Burnaby, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations in Doug’s memory may be sent to Partners International Canada (http://partnersinternational.ca/) or the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation.
