After bravely struggling for 23 years with MS and many months of hospitalization, Douglas Michael Harris died at Arnprior Hospital, Wednesday, June 7, 2023. He is survived by his wife, Debbie, of Ottawa; parents, Shirley Ross of Kincardine and Jim Harris of London; brother, Ron (Carly) of Toronto; and son, Brandon, and daughter, Jessica, both of Ottawa. Predeceased by his grandparents, Grandma Jean and Hal Bain, and Lola and Goldie Harris; infant brother, John; his loved furry friends, Duke, Bear and Coco; and very special friend, Dan Shaw. Doug spent his childhood in Kincardine, participating in hockey, soccer, lacrosse and figure skating, but his favourite time was spent fishing on the boat, trying to catch that “special one.” After graduating from Fanshawe College in London, Doug went to work in property management with the Government of Canada. He was most proud of his projects with the Supreme Court and the War Memorial. A private family memorial gathering will be held at the home of his mom. His smile will be forever in our hearts.
