TAYLOR-MUNRO, Douglas (Doug), MAJ (Ret’d), CD, RCLS – Transport
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Taylor-Munro on Sunday, June 26, 2022 in his 75th year. Surrounded by his family, Doug passed peacefully at home after a short battle with illness. Doug was the loving husband of Judith (JJ) Taylor-Munro for 52 years, cherished father to son Chris Taylor-Munro (Anastasia), daughter Kelly Rego (Jason), and special ‘grampa’ to Milliana (Millie). Much loved brother to Sheryl Taylor-Munro, Barbara Jones, Ross Taylor-Munro (Anna), and predeceased by his sister Susan Taylor-Munro. Dear brother-in-law to Robert and Margie Woollerton.
Doug served 22 years in the Canadian Armed Forces and retired as a Major before enjoying his second career as an Archivist with Library and Archives Canada. His many passions over the years included building and flying remote controlled model airplanes, boating on the Rideau Canal, and reading, cooking and baking. Doug’s love for music led him to playing in several bands and listening to a wide array of music with a glass of wine outside on many evenings. Doug had a love for all creatures great and small, particularly the many pets he and JJ homed over their years together.
Visitation will be at the Heritage Funeral home 1250 Trim Rd Orleans ON, on Thursday July 21, 2022 from 12 p.m-2 p.m. followed by a memorial service.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ottawa Humane Society in honour of Doug would kindly be appreciated.
