It is with deepest sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Douglas Wm. Penney Jr. at the age of 61. Doug was loved and respected by all who knew him, and a good friend to anyone and everyone – he was always there with a smile, to lend a hand to anyone in need. Family was very important to Doug. The love of his life, Laurie Ann, and his beautiful fur baby, Chloe were very near and dear to him. Doug loved his work. He was a man of principle and believed strongly in working hard and doing a good job. He was a member of the Harvey’s Home Heating team for 42 years and had great respect for staff within the Harvey group of companies. He was a hard working and dedicated distributor and business partner, who valued everybody. To Doug, customers weren’t just customers – they were friends.

 

Doug leaves to mourn his soul mate of 25 years, Laurie Ann Taylor and Chloe; father Douglas Wm. Penney Sr.; brothers Alex (Deanne), Gerry (Karen); sisters Beverley (Ed), Sandra (Derrick); sister-in-law Shelley; brother-in-law Greg; nieces and nephews Darcy, Melissa, Jamie, Kayla, Jeremy, Alexander, Derrick, Zachery,  Stephanie, Jessica, Emily, Barry and Ben; great nieces and nephews Katelynn, Mark, Hailey, Amber, Madison, Jett, Mason, Jase and Brianna.

So shocked to hear of Dougies sudden passing. I have many fond memories of Dougie at her house on Mercers lane growing up. Dougie always had such an infectious smile and jolly nature , and such a great friend to my parents Vince and Brenda Dwyer. We always loved seeing Dougies truck pulling into our driveway, as he would always bring a treat of some sort, or tell us a good joke or story and give us a chuckle. He treated everyone the same young or old, and was the most kind hearted man I ever met. He will be deeply missed by a great many that knew him. I am grateful to have been in his company. My heartfelt sympathies to all the family on such a hard year of laying to rest so many of your dear loved ones. Thoughts, prayers and hugs to you all. RIP Dougie

To the Penney Family. My sincere condolences to you all during this most difficult time. I knew Doug about forty years ago while living in St. John’s. He was a kind individual who brightened up everyone’s day. He always had a smile and was helpful to all. As my parents
were customers of Harvey’s Oil at the time, it was always great to see Doug. He would always stop and have a chat with you. When you saw a Harvey’s Oil truck around the city, you would look to see if it was Doug and I still do when I visit there. He will be missed by all who knew him. He was one of the good guys and I was proud to have known him. Our thoughts and prayers to his wife and Penney Family.. Take care.

Laurie Ann and family, Doug Sr. and family. So sorry to hear of Doug’s sudden passing. He will be greatly missed by his family, co- workers and all his customers. God must have a reason to take him at such young age. RIP Dougie.

Condolences to the Penney family. Very saddened to hear of Dougie’s passing. I first met Dougie at the age of 10 when he was a cub leader at St. Teresa’s.
Dougie ended up being a neighbour of my parents in our family home. My parents, now deceased, spoke very highly of Dougie and often commented how he was always there to give a hand or help out with whatever was needed.
He continued to do this even this fall with my sister with trimming over grown trees. and cleaning up leaves.
He truly was one of a kind and will be greatly missed by all.
May you Rest In Peace Dougie.

Jim Yetman.

I will miss that big smile and hardy laugh everytime we talked about work or anything, when I worked on his truck there was always a bag of oranges on the floor during the cold season, Doug always said, SHELDON ,I always eat alot of oranges to keep away the flue, That’s just something I will always remember. He will be missed
by all of his friends in the petroleum industry REST IN PEACE GOOD FRIEND.

LAURIE Ann /Penney Family We are shocked and it is so hard to believe that DOUGIE has passed. we are sending sincere condolences to all of you. he was such a nice person. He was at our house on Saturday afternoon delivering oil. i gave him a Christmas card every year and had his card already done for this Christmas. Dougie delivered oil to our house for the past 19 years. . OH MY I JUST CANT BELIEVE. IT. Hold on to his memories and he will be always close to you . Thinking about all of you at this sad time.. IT WILL TAKE SOME BIG BOOTS TO TAKE DOUGIE., S PLACE. I KNOW THAT.. HE WAS THE BEST. R.I.P. DOUG. YOU WILL BE MISSED THE MOST.

Big hugs…Dana Hounsell and Family

To the Penney and Taylor families, I was saddened and shocked to hear of Doug’s passing. I simply can’t express how sorry I am to hear of your loss. Doug was someone who will be remembered by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.. He was a typical soul who made the world a better place.

It was indeed sad to learn that Doug had passed so suddenly. It only seems like yesterday that he would stop by the Knights Of Columbus building with a handful of cookies for the coffee crowd and join us in a few yarns.

My Condolences to his family and may his soul R.IP.

Condolences to all of Doug’s family. He was a great person and will be missed by all.

To the Penny family I would like to offer my Condolence first to His wife and family I was saddened to hear of Dougs passing To know Doug
Was a pleasure he just had that way about him in my life time I got to know him and he is a person I could
call my friend he had a heart of gold and to meet him you would walk away with that impression . R I P

Too say we were shocked and saddened to hear of Doug’s passing would be an understatement. When I started at Harvey & Company 30 years ago Doug Sr. and Dougie were one of the first customers I ever came to know. Over the years Doug and the entire Penney family have become much more than just customers. Doug was always good with a yarn and a joke and never got terribly upset about much, he was a joy to see come in the shop. Alex, Jerry, Doug Sr. and Laurie Ann our hearts here at Harvey & Company are broken. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Rest In peace my friend, you will be sadly missed by all of us here at Harvey & Company.

I am saddened and shocked to hear of Dougie’s passing. All my memories of him include him wearing a big smile and offering kind words.. I recently had a conversation with my dad (David Escott) in the last year about what a good guy Dougie was, he would be deeply saddened by this loss. My thoughts are with you Laurie Ann and all the Penney family., especially Uncle Doug. xo

So sorry to hear of Doug.s passing. Sincere condolenses to to All the Penny and Taylor Famly.

Doug and I were friends for over 40 years. He was always proud to call himself an “oil man.” He was also a family man, and a kind man with a big presence and a bigger heart. His eyes would light up whenever he spoke of his beloved Laurie Ann and “the little dog.” I will surely miss our long gabs that always ended with “well Billie, it is what it is.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Laurie Ann, and the Penney and Taylor families. Time heals all.
Rest easy friend.

Such a shock yesterday to hear. I only knew Doug from our yarns as he delivered oil in our area. He always had a smile on and we could talk about most things. Truly missed but not forgotten.

Laurie Ann / Penny family . I am so sorry to hear of Doug’s passing . I’ve had the pleasure of working with Doug for the passed 6 years and Doug would call to let me know that he had my late mother in law all looked after when she was living on Patrick St . Also Doug would call to give the latest news on NL politics . Doug will be greatly missed may he rest in peace .

I am so sorry to hear of Dougie’s passing this week. Growing up in the Mundy Pond area ,our paths often crossed. Back in January, while attending his brother Barry’s funeral service we had a great chat and reminisced about old days, softball, dances and my mother’s passing. He will be missed by all who loved him dearly.

I am so sorry Laurie Ann to hear of Douglas’s passing. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Doug was a great guy very friendly always had a smile delivered my oil for a long time will miss seeing him rest in peace Doug

I was shocked to hear of Doug’s passing; it was only in January that his brother Barry passed. So sad, he was such a gentle man.

My condolences to the family. While I didn’t have the privilege of knowing him personally, he was such a friendly and pleasant man, who was so gracious about my frequent apologies for the mess I’d often left in the path to my oil tank. I now have a beautiful photograph of Mr Penney and his beloved Chloe in my garden. Such a lovely man; I am so very sorry for your loss.

We are so sad to hear of Dougie passing healing hugs to all the family. Take Care

My heart goes out to Laurie Anne and all the Penney and Taylor families. Doug was one of my “boys” for many years. We worked well together and were the best of friends. He will be missed dearly by everyone he knew, family, co-workers, customers and most especially Laurie Anne and Chloe. The void he leaves behind is bigger than the man he was. I will miss our lengthy conversations and his many many stories. The world lost a good man. RIP my friend
