Obituary of Douglas "Doug" WhalenIt is with broken hearts that we share that Doug passed away at the Greater Niagara General Hospital, on Sunday, July 10, 2022, after fighting a hard battle with his declining health. For 73 years, right until his very last day, he always wanted to make sure everyone was "okay" and taken care of. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife and best friend Catherine and by his daughters April and Jenny. He was a proud Papa of Troy, Payton and Jordan. Dear brother of John, Henry, Dave and was greatly loved by many nieces and nephews. Doug has been reunited with his parents, siblings and nephews.
