Default In memoriam - "Doug"

It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of a great friend and avid reefer Doug Lowey on July 27th, 2017. Doug had been battling cancer for a second time and unfortunately this last battle was too much to overcome.
To all who had the pleasure of knowing Doug you will know what I mean when I say it was an honour to have called him a friend. He was an incredibly kind and good hearted man who had a lot of passions in his life, none could compare to the love for his family. One of his other great passions however was his enjoyment of reef keeping and helping others in the hobby.
Please join me in remembering Doug, and sending our deepest sympathy and condolences to his family during this time.
You will be greatly missed Doug.

So sorry to hear the cancer came back. Deepest condolences to Doug's family.

Thank you so much Doug for your involvement with Canreef for so many years. I hope you find many beautiful gorgonians wherever you are reefing now. Rest In Peace buddy.

Saddens me to hear the passing of Doug. Was fortunate to have purchased a skimmer from him a few years ago, and could not have dealt with a nicer reefer

Rest in Peace Doug. While your family and friends will grieve, now your own pain is finally over. Living with cancer is terrible. Bless you Doug and thanks for all your years helping out reefers on Canreef.

Very sad to hear Doug has passed. We had not near enough Canreef chats over the years.

You will be missed my friend.

Enjoy your free time well
