Dougie will always be missed. He had a very important role in this community. He was a great man. Our condolences go to his family. My heart goes out to the community also because we lost a very big influence in our town. Doug touched everyone he ever met, no matter how little it was, everyone always remembered him. Rest easy up there Doug and keep a good eye on everyone down here! We will always miss you!

To the North family, and all of Dougie's friends, my deepest and most sincere condolences during this difficult time. I never once walked into Stewarts or through town without a kind hello or casual conversation with Dougie and it was one of the few things I looked forward to everyday. My son loved saying hello to him and seeing him everyday as well. Words can never experience the loss this entire town feels right now and I believe I speak for the community in saying we are all here to support you as needed. RIP Dougie.
