Loved with a love beyond telling; missed with a grief beyond all tears.
With the deepest sadness and a profound sense of loss, we announce the passing of Douglas John Hertz after his battle with cancer at the age of 50. Doug faced his fight with cancer the same way he lived his all too short life - with strength, determination, courage and dignity.
Doug was cherished by his beloved & devoted wife and sons, Laura, Zach & Parker. For us, treasured, precious memories are left behind as well as Dougís legacy of being the best partner and father you can be.
Doug led a principled life and his strength of character earned him the utmost respect from all who knew him.
Doug is predeceased by his mother, Patricia, and survived by his father, Nick; brothers, Bruce and Richard (Amy); sister, Joan (Barry); nieces and nephews, Katrina, Erika, Nicholas, Eric, Kate, Anna, Ben; father & mother in law, Ted & Margaret; and brother in law, Brad.
Our sincerest thanks to the family and friends who lovingly, graciously and generously supported us throughout this long difficult journey. Thank you to the caring Unit 43 team at the Grey Nunís Hospital.
A celebration of Dougís life will be held on Tuesday, July 26, 2pm, at the Royal Glenora Club, 11160 River Valley Road.
In lieu of flowers, any thought, story, or memory of Doug forwarded to Zach & Parker would honor the great man they knew their father to be.
