Doug believes in meeting with families in a safe and mutually familiar environment and often meets in families homes. Whether a simple tribute or a lasting memorial, he will help you to honor your loved one the way you want to. He understands that families are at their most vulnerable when dealing with the loss of a loved one and always maintains “The Family First” motto.
Doug’s focus is on serving First Nations People and he is fascinated by native culture. This stems from a long standing interest in their history and culture, inherited from his father, who was an honorary Kainai Chief. Doug’s father was an honorary Chief due to his commitment to environmental conservation. Doug inherited his father’s love of the outdoors in his pursuits of hunting and fishing and strongly supports the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association.
Doug became interested in working with Cornerstone Funeral Home while completing arrangements after the loss of his mother in law and also due to the experience he had in 1981 when his father was killed suddenly in an automobile accident. Soon after he retired from working with Telus, for 25 years, he took the training and became a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer.
Doug is involved with many organizations in our community. He is with the Lethbridge Fish and Game shot gun range as well as being an official referee for the National Skeet Shooting Association. He enjoys teaching new people who want to learn about shooting and also likes fly-fishing and fly tying. Doug has a passion for helping youth with anything related to the outdoors. Along with his wonderful wife Madeline, they have volunteered with the YWCA for over 25 years.
