Can I simply just say what a relief to uncover a person that actually understands what they are talking about over the internet.
You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light
and make it important. More people should read this and
understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you
aren’t more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

Family of the late Douglas Noseworthy,
Our deepest and sincere sympathy at this time in the loss of your loved one, Douglas. It has been a long time since our paths have crossed—believe the last time was at the Annual Regatta around 1985 or so.
The Noseworthy family lived on Thorburn Road, and pretty well grew up with us the Sharpe family. We have lots of good memories, and friendships from that time.
We give thanks to God for Doug’s life and witness, and for all that he has meant to his family and friends. “May his rest be in peace, and his dwelling place be in the Paradise of God.” Amen. +

My deepest and sincere sympathy to the family. He will always live in your memories. May God hold him gently in his hands.

Will always love you Uncle Doug, rest in peace.
Love to my cousins Craig, Carmen and Jason. Keep him in your heart and cherish the memories.

So sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

It saddens me to here of Dougs Passing. He was always a fun person to be around and we had a lot of laughs driving cab, we missed him since he parked his cab for the last time . I wish you all the best at these sad times.
Keith Sullivan Jiffy Cabs.

So sorry to hear that Doug has passed away. We’ve been friends since high school. We stood for them when they married and they stood for us when we married. Thinking of you and sending love, take care. Eric and Ada

My condolences to you, Doug,s Family, on the passing of your Dad. In the early 50,s, he and I were both active members of the same patrol of the 11th St. John,s Boy Scout Troop at Curtis Academy where we both attended school. I remember him as a good scout, and very interested in progressing through the various Scouting Levels and Badge Work. I was not surprised to learn of his dedication to both Scouting and Freemasonry. He was, no doubt, a dad you were justly proud of. Again, my sincere sympathy.

Driving a cab is a long, hard way to make a living. The endless hours, road conditions, and sometimes ungrateful patrons make this line of work only very special people. Doug was perfect for the work. Dedicated, honest, and a wonderful sense of humour. Always a pleasure to see and sometimes speak with him – My condolences and deepest sympathy to his family. Happy we met, happy we parted, happy may we meet again.

My deepest condolences to all the members of Doug’s family. I worked with Doug for many years at Jiffu Cabs. I had a few adventures with him and shared more than a few laughs. He was always there to give someone a hand and always a gentleman with the ladies. I’ve missed Doug since he retired and was sad to hear of his passing. Please take some solace in the fact that he was well liked and will be missed by all who knew him.

Rest in peace cousin..
