Obituary of Doug Grace

Grace, Douglas Albert, 73, of St. Andrews passed away suddenly at home on Monday, January 27, 2020. Born in Antigonish, he was a son of the late Angus and Margaret (Fraser) Grace. Doug was known to be a kind and generous man who was always willing to help his friends and loved ones. Those who knew Doug knew he had a great sense of humour. He always enjoyed visiting, telling ‘yarns’ and playing innocent pranks. He had a love of his childhood home of Springfield where he would spend much of his time tending to blueberry fields, cutting pulp, Christmas trees, and brush. He had a passion for tractors and enjoyed adding to his collection. Doug worked for fifty years for the Department of Lands and Forests, much of that time as a crew foreman. A job he clearly loved as he just retired within the past year. He was devoted to his wife, children and grandchildren who were his pride and joy. He was a man of great faith and enjoyed being in the great outdoors that God created. He is survived by his wife of forty-one years, Theresa, daughters, Karen (Joey) Doiron, St. George, NB; Cheryl (Steve) MacNeil, Fall River, NS; son, Ian, Halifax; grandchildren Michael Douglas MacNeil and Madeline Grace Doiron; Brothers, Carl (Mary) and Bernie; Sisters, Jean (Bobby) Vacheresse; Mary (late Tom) Mattie; and Anne as well as several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents he was predeceased by brothers Everett, Sander, Howard and Donnie.
