We were both blessed to have Doug as a teacher. He was dedicated to learning and also entertaining with his jokes related to the content of his lessons. His diagrams were second to none and he was always lovingly known as "Diagram Doug" to his students, throughout time. Thankfully his appreciation of meticulous diagrams could always get you a few bonus marks.
Doug was also a very prominent member of The United Church in Portland and throughout the community. His smile and boisterous laugh are things we will remember him by as well. We often sit on our deck staring at the clouds and can easily identify a cumulus nimbus thanks to him. This will now hold a more special meaning 😊.
Condolences to Jennifer and Jillian.

Doug was my next-door neighbor at Portland for 15 years. I enjoyed every conversation I ever had with Doug. He was an interesting historian and interested in everything the world had to offer. He offered so much of himself as well and made our community a much better place. Jill, Jennifer and your families, I extend my sincere condolences to you in the loss of your father. He will live on forever through all his contributions of his time and knowledge.

My name is Dickson Mansfield and I live in Kingston. I was sad to read of Doug's passing this past Sunday. Doug and I were both Geography teachers/educators and shared our common passion for the subject and for kids.
I met Doug, for the first time, at some point in the early 80's when he was teaching the B.Ed. Geography program at the Queen's Faculty of Education. The permanent instructor, Alex Grime, was away on sabbatical leave and Doug stepped in to keep the program going. From all reports he did an outstanding job in helping the students teachers in his care to grow in confidence and expertise as future educators.
Around the same time, I have forgotten the year, the Ministry of Education offered summer courses for teachers. The one in question was called "Environmental Field Studies in Britain". The course was led by Bob Goddard from the Ministry. Both my first wife Barbara, who was also an educator, and I were interested intaking the course. As it turned out Doug was also on this course. We had a wonderful experience with a group of likeminded educators as we explored innovative educational programs in the UK. In the evenings we managed to go out and enjoy some of the local pubs. Doug being big, in both stature and personality, was soon dubbed "Prince Hal" - I think Shakespeare would have approved!!
I went to the Faculty of Ed. in 1989 to teach the Geography curriculum course. At that time the instructors had an opportunity to visit the teacher candidates while they were practice teaching. Doug was always gracious in welcoming student teachers into his classroom at Rideau District High School. It was always a pleasure for me to visit Doug and the students as I always knew that they were well cared for and would have a positive learning experience.
I will always remember Doug as a friend and colleague in education. A person I always respected him professionally and enjoyed his good humour and hearty laugh.

Dickson Mansfield.
