MacLeod, Douglas Wayne – passed away Monday, March 15, 2021. Born in New Glasgow on July 17, 1945, he was the son of the late Sidney and Ruth (nee Chisholm) MacLeod. Douglas was a farm raised boy that started his working career in the Navy. His work life took him in many directions including a milk truck delivery driver with the Scotsburn Dairy, a maintenance worker at the Stellarton Memorial Rink, and commercial lobster (and other) fisherman on the Northumberland Strait. In his retirement, Douglas enjoyed sitting and talking with great neighbours in the Red Row and walking his many routes through the town of Stellarton. He was a dedicated member of the Legion Branch #28 for over 45 years. He cherished his role of being a grandfather to his grandchildren often serving as taxi driver for their many activities as well as being their #1 cheerleader during their events. Douglas enjoyed following and talking sports, with family and friends, especially following his beloved Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays. Douglas is survived by his children Steven (Jolene) MacLeod, Stellarton and Brian MacLeod, Halifax; grandchildren Chloe (Callum Jordan) MacLeod and Marcus (Jessica MacDonald) MacLeod, Stellarton; Michael Perry, Samantha (Zack Graham) Perry, Nicolas Perry and Shelley Perry, Halifax; great granddaughter Sadie Graham, Halifax; and beloved cat Squeaker.
