It is will deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Douglas Stanley Hammond on August 15, 2021 at the age of 70 years. Doug was born in Zeballos, BC on November 17, 1950. He moved with his family several times in his youth, settling in Kamloops in 1962. He spent the majority of his time with his family – his best friends were his two brothers, with whom he liked to share news of the day and opinions galore! He was particularly close with his older brother Byron and missed him dearly when he left us. Doug is survived by his brother Wayne Hammond (Marianne), and their children Erika Hammond (Blake), Kirsten Hammond, Maggie Suranko (Ben), Emma McLeod (Suka), and Scott McLeod. He was predeceased by his parents Harold and Irene Hammond, and his brother Byron Hammond. Doug will also be missed by his aunts, uncles and cousins in the Okanagan Valley.
There will be a private family service at a later date. If desired, donations to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation to honour Doug’s memory would be appreciated – www.heartandstroke.ca
