Travel Industry Stalwart

Doug was extremely well known in the travel Industry and was instrumental in the development of TICO. Heavily involved in ACTA, and several other boards, and could be considered one of the founders of the industry as we know it today.

His wife Hee, advised by email with the following: “Doug chose to go gracefully with medical assistance in dying. That gave him the control of when and how he wanted to go. He had two beers and listened to jazz songs “Blame It On The Blues” and “I believe in Miracles” He was joking right to the end and offered to kiss the Doctor, but he declined and said “ Sorry it isn’t professionally ethical to kiss” – that’s him wanting to go with a laugh. He was at peace when he closed his eyes.”
