Lagore, Douglas “Doug” Allen

March 27, 1947 – January 21, 2023
at the age of 75 years:     

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of DOUGLAS ALLEN LAGORE at the age of 75. He was born in Stettler, AB to Phyllis and Leonard and lived in many locations throughout Alberta and BC, including 37 years in Revelstoke and, most recently, 12 years in Salmon Arm.

Doug is survived by the love of his life, Lynne and his two children Deborah (Darren Zwack) and Michael (Shawna), his sisters Jenny Marchand & Sandy Grassie and his brother Roger Lagore; grandchildren Jessyca, Amanda, Kailah, Kate-Lynne, Noah and Kyla; his great grandchildren Jaxson, Declan, Rosina and Hennley, his mother-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends.

Doug worked as an engineer for the BC Forest Service for 35 years, was an Auxillary Constable with the Revelstoke RCMP for 10 years, and was the equipment boss on the O Team that fought forest fires throughout BC. He was an active ball player, curler, and hockey player; and loved fishing, camping and hunting with his friends and family. Most of all, Doug was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. His kind nature and warm sense of humour touched the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know him.

We would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses that cared for Doug during his sudden illness.

As per Doug’s request, there will be no funeral service. For those who would like to do so, the family welcomes donations to JoeAnna’s House. https://joeannashouse.com

                                                             In Loving Memory

With profound grief and sadness, we announce the passing of Morgan Paige Hill (Paige), a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Predeceased by his parents Edgar and Jean Hill, Paige leaves behind his loving wife Diane, daughters Kristie (Brian) and Shannon (Mark), stepsons Craig (Christine) and Jeffrey, brother Lance (Elmira), sister Jill, grandchildren Sebastian, Jillian, Jaida, Levi, Brock, Madison, Haille and Vaughan, niece Amy (Jordan), nephew Tory and great niece Holly.

Paige was born on October 14, 1956 in Belleville, Ontario. He attended school in Madoc and secondary school in Ignace. As the eldest he grew up quickly as his mother spent much time in the hospital. Paige received his electrical apprenticeship January 1, 1976 and became an interprovincial journeyman electrician while working at Mattabi Mines. He also became Captain of the Mine Search and Rescue team. His electrical career took him across Canada from Ignace, Ontario to Havelock, Ontario, Lanigan, Saskatchewan, White River, Ontario, Mackenzie, BC, New Westminster, BC, Port Alberni, BC, and Nanaimo, BC working in the mining, wood products and pulp and paper industries. He achieved his Bachelor of General Studies Degree through Simon Fraser University in 2001 and hung out his own electrical shingle in 2006 in Port Alberni, BC before joining BC Safety Authority of Nanaimo, BC in 2010. He retired from his position as Regional Business Leader over Vancouver Island in 2020.

Sadly, Paige left us on January 19, 2023 after a defiant battle with cancer. He fought valiantly with all he had, for all he loved. His strength and mental fortitude inspired friends and loved ones who will forever cherish his memories.

The legacy of Paige will be one of love, generosity, teaching, mentoring and coaching. He was a consummate host, loved entertaining, sharing his music, playing drums for friends and family. He loved to cook, design and build, travel, SCUBA dive, boat and read. His quest for knowledge was limitless and throughout his life he practiced a combination of the Good Samaritan Act, the Mariners Act and the Golden Rule. He was also a student of the Masonic Lodges of Mackenzie, BC And Port Alberni, BC and really enjoyed the teachings and fellowships.

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Cody Thomson, Dr. Warren Bell and the Palliative Care Staff and Team of Shuswap Lake General Hospital for the care and compassion they showed Paige during his illness. A big thank you to the management and staff of Fischer’s Funeral Home and our family and friends for their love, support and care.

Family and Friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life to be held at Cedar Heights Community Association, 2316 Lakeview Drive, Blind Bay, BC At 11:00 am Saturday, March 11, 2023. A reception will follow with food and refreshments.
