In Loving Memory

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Lloyd Douglas (Doug) Speer.

Doug was born in Calgary on December 16, 1948 and was taken from us unexpectedly on December 20, 2022.  Doug was survived by daughter Joanna (Jeremy), grandchildren Brandon, Cole and Abby.  Nephew Aaron, niece Ashely, brother Greg and numerous cousins. He was predeceased by parents Lloyd and Peggy as well as sister Debbie.

Growing up in the Edmonton and Mayerthorpe area is where he developed his love for the outdoors.  At one point in time, he was an avid hunter and fisherman which then transitioned into his love for golf. He relocated to Kamloops in 1972  with his family for his job as a pipefitter for Weyerhaeuser.  It was here that  he spent much of his time involved in the hockey and baseball communities.  He played both sports but loved reffing hockey and dedicated much of his time to coaching many baseball teams over the years.

He loved his family and friends more than anything and would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need. He will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date and in lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Doug’s name.
