Obituary for Rev. Doug Heard

Rev. Doug Heard
Douglas Wallace ("Doug") Heard died on August 21, 2017, at his new home in Kitchener, ON. He was 77 years old.

Doug was born March 20, 1940 in Belleville, ON. He attended Queen's University in Kingston, ON, where he graduated (B.A., Masters of Divinity) and met his future wife Mary (née) Robertson (B.P.H.E.). Over the years, Doug served as a United Church minister in Oakdale, Madoc, Kanata, Cobourg, and Ottawa. He retired in 2002 and lived happily in Ottawa among friends until moving to Kitchener to be closer to his grandchildren. Mary passed away in 2004; Doug was remarried from 2006 - 2012 to Lesley Elmas (d. 2017).

Doug was a storyteller, a minister, a paddler, a choir member, and a maker of maple syrup. He loved his cottage on Round Lake (near Eganville), his adopted sugarbush (Fortune Farms), his family, and his many, many friends. He loved to tell and to hear stories, especially to, from, or about children.

Doug is survived by his sister Kathy Daub and her husband Lawrie; by his brother Allan Heard and his wife Cassie; by his three sons and their spouses, Brian Heard and Joanne Olson, Gord and D-J Heard, Steve and Kristie Heard; and by his grandchildren Ashley, Meagan, Jessica, Jordan, and Jamie (to whom he was affectionately "Papa").

Doug's family welcomes friends to a visitation on Sunday, September 3, 2017 from 1- 2:30 p.m., at Kanata United Church, 33 Leacock Dr., Kanata, ON. For those who wish to stay, a Service of Celebration and Remembrance will follow at 3:00 p.m., with a reception afterwards. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Doug's memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Kanata United Church, or the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada (donations may be arranged by calling the Henry Walser Funeral Home 519-749-8467 or via Doug's memorial at www.henrywalser.com).
