    Douglas Edmond - VE3XK Leach (Doug)
    June 8, 1938 - January 15, 2020
    Suddenly at home January 15 at the age of 81. Beloved husband of Beverley. Loving father of Karen Kerr, Alison Lakevold and the late Warren Leach, his sister Catherine McColl, niece Pamela and many grandchildren. He and Bev sailed on the Ottawa River and then a 44 ft trawler based at Clayton, NY cruising the Thousand Islands. After retirement they cruised into the intracoastal waterway system, spending several winters around the Bahama Islands before returning to Canada. A celebration of Doug's life will be held February 9, 2-4pm at Robbie's Restaurant, 1531 St. Laurent Blvd.
