Douglas "Doug" Bernard McQuaid, of Hanover, passed away with Emmy by his side at Hanover and District Hospital on Thursday, November 17, 2022. He was 81. 

Born in Toronto on January 26, 1941 to the late Clifford and Olive "Mugga" McQuaide. Doug was a jack of all trades and could be found tearing apart old cars only to rebuild them just for fun as well as ripping around in his Kubota and 1956 Thunderbird. He loved his tractors (all shapes and colors) but his favorite was the Kubota. He graduated from no cab to full cab, fully enjoying the comforts while Emmy would be doing the harder work outside. He was a proud Auxiliary Member of the Royal Canadian Legion in Hanover and will be missed by many fellow comrades. 

Survived by devoted wife Emmy McQuaid (nee Koops) of Hanover. Loved by Matt (Sarah) Guiney and their son Jacob of Toronto. Doug always treated him like the son he never had and was very fond of his newfound title of "Great" grandpa once Jacob arrived. Although not actually his great grandpa per say, but he would always chime that he was a GREAT grandpa and enthusiastically took on his new title. Fondly remembered by his sister Margaret "Peggy" Byrnes of Richmond Hill and brother Roland "Rody" McQuaide of Trenton. He will be remembered by his many nieces, nephews and their families. Predeceased by his parents, and siblings June (Richard) Breen, Rae Ryanne (Jaromy) , Ronald ("Betty"), Patricia "Trish" (Steve) and sister in law Louise McQuaide and brother in law Tom Byrnes. 

Family and friends are invited to a Memorial Come and Go Celebration at the Royal Canadian Legion - Branch #130 -(493 8th Ave, Hanover, ON N4N 2K9) on Friday, November 25, 2022 from 1-3 pm with memories commencing at 2:00. Cremation has taken place.
