Douglas James Stolee passed away peacefully with his wife at his side, on Tuesday, January 14, 2014, at the Red Deer Hospital, at the age of 71 years. Doug was born October 19, 1942, in Red Deer, Alberta. Doug was predeceased by his daughter, Dana Marie; mother, Mildred; and father, Sigvald (Sig). Doug’s spirit will live on in his loving wife of 42 years, Bernice Alice; daughter, Lee Ann (Tim) Waines; adored grandchildren, Carson Douglas, and Preslee May and in the countless friends and colleagues whose lives he impacted over the years. Doug grew up and went to school in Red Deer, and had a great memory for the changing landscape of our city. He was a devoted employee who worked for Canada Safeway Ltd. for more than 40 years. He shared 42 years of marriage with his best friend and dancing partner, Bernice. We all knew Doug to be a gentle soul with a quick-wit and a kind heart. He will be sadly missed.
