August 18, 1949 – July 23, 2020
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Douglas Bruce Rice after a courageous battle with cancer. He will be deeply missed by his wife Nancy, daughters Alanna (Chris Rowe), Sarah Lindeman, Amanda (Vanni Boetto) and cherished grandsons Julian and Cristian. Doug is predeceased by his parents Lorne and Betty Rice and brother Jeff (Carol). He is survived by his sister Carolyn Komaromi and many nieces and nephews.
Doug worked for CIBC for 35 years largely in Hamilton and Toronto. He retired from his role of Regional Director of Private Banking in 2004 to enjoy time with his family and to pursue his favourite past -time of golf. Doug was happiest outdoors hiking with his family, walking the beach in Florida, kayaking among the mangroves on the Indian River and exploring the world. He has given us many funny stories and ‘Dougisms’ which we hope to share at a memorial next spring when the Covid restrictions are lifted and we can truly celebrate together as Doug would have wanted. He was outgoing, boisterous, and full of life and he will be missed and remembered every day. As per Doug’s wishes cremation has taken place. Comments and remembrances may be made through The Turner Family Funeral Home, Dundas.
Should you wish to make a donation in Doug’s name, please consider the Juravinski Cancer Clinic who provided him with excellent care over the past 6 years, or a charity of your choice.
Thank you to all our family and friends for being there during the difficult times. Your support will never be forgotten.
Life is an adventure – live it fully and live it with love.
