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
