Douglas William Ridenour

October 19, 1956 – October 17, 2019
Doug was tenacious, creative, and proactive with a zest for adventure and a particular knack for wry dad-humour. In his youth, Doug was involved in many sports including soccer, rugby, curling and middle distance running. While earning a degree at UBC Vancouver, he life guarded on the beaches near campus which later transitioned into a career as a paramedic that exceeded 30 years. His passion for cycling, sailing and rowing carried throughout his life. His extraordinary wit and humour lives on in all three of his children and is remembered by all who knew him. He will be missed without measure by his partner Jane, his parents Pat and Ken, his children Stephanie, Nicholas and Alex, siblings Steve (Dina) and Lesley Hartford (Cam) and large extended family and friends. We who loved him will miss him always. We wish him tailwinds and full sails.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Monday, December 16, 2019 from 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm at the Maple Bay Yacht Club, 6337 Genoa Bay Road, Duncan, B.C.
