He leaves behind his wife, Sandra (York); stepchildren, Sue (Dave) Salmon and Dave McCreary; sisters, Ruth (Robert); Marion and Phyllis (Sonny); brother, Bob (Kathryn); grand-children, great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents he was predeceased by his stepson, Brad McCreary; brother, Ron and infant sister Patricia.

Sandra, Pete and I just read in the Masthead News about your profound loss . My heart is heavy. I remember the laughs we shared when you were in the wee building at the corner of Indian Point Road before you moved to the larger spot on the ocean. We discussed marketing and decorating ideas for your small space so people could gather and socialize. Thinking of you and holding you in our thoughts. Such a loss. Doug was one of a kind.

So sorry to hear of Doug's passing. He will always be remembered fondly by our family, particularly as the 'baker', who always made you feel welcome.

My condolences to the Poulton family for their loss. Doug was a great man - a person you could depend on, a person who kept steady during the hard times and always encouraged and supported the people around him. I appreciated his friendship. He will be remembered and missed. Tim Kohoot

For 15 years Doug and Sandra filled our home with goodies during our Bed and Breakfast days. They were missed when they sold the Bakery, but Doug keep on giving to the community in so many ways. Always there at the ready to offer a cheery Hello, and help in any way he could. He will be sorely missed by Sandra and family. Our heartfelt sympathies to them. Take comfort in the fact that Doug has earned his place in Heaven!
