Obituary

Obituary for Douglas "Doug" Allan Bird

We will sadly miss “Oiseaux’’ so very much and all the good times we had with Doug and his sudden passing. Survived by his wife Linda Bird of 50 years this August 2021, daughter Suzanne Tate her husband Adam Tate, grandchildren Anna & Abby Tate, his sister Jeanie Bird & niece Andra & Cristopher and baby Nico, brother James Bird & partner Ross. Friends and family will especially love the memories of their talks watching TV before Doug falling asleep in the Lazy-Boy with a half empty glass of wine.
Forever known as "Gucci Shoes" and the famous "GUCCI" story. Doug's famous mustache will be sadly missed by all the extended family of brother in laws & sisters, nieces and nephews. Born with Hemophilia, Doug spent a majority of his life on crutches, in hospitals & healing from Hemorrhages but outliving many life expectancies associated with the severity of his condition. The family just celebrated his 73 birthday Jan 29 with his favourites: watching CNN or car races, a little red wine, black licorice and his favourite snack corn chips. Many will remember Doug for his incredible artistry for refinishing old cars, taking home numerous trophies and awards for his most recent passion project a 1934 Terraplane he rescued from a barn. In lieu of flowers the family requests a donation in memory of Doug Bird to Canadian Hemophilia Society https://bit.ly/3tBR3A9

Linda and Sue, Doug's memory will live in on so many ways! Your time on Poplarwood will never be forgotten, the 'good old days'. We were concerned for Doug's health back then but he never skipped a beat, street parties, house parties, St. Patrick's day, BBQs. He always had a plan for something and it always amazed us the many ties he had! We'll remember Doug as someone who never gave in to his illness, lived life to the fullest, always seemed to have a story to tell, and so proud of his family. Pete, Sue and Erin

Dear Linda, Sue & Family, our sincere condolences to you all at this sad time. Susie told us not to worry about Linda because she is a tough gal, just like her Mum. God Bless.

Condolences to Doug's family, sorry sorry to hear of his passing. Always enjoyed my chats with Doug at Cruise Nights. So sorry we did not get to see Doug all last summer.
Loved how excited he was to get the Terraplane on the road, and the pictures he would show of her progress
He will be missed by the Cruise night family
Bev, Jeff and Taylor Shoots
