Jack Douglas Bagshaw
November 7, 1929 – September 21, 2017
Was born on November 7, 1929 in Medicine Hat, Alberta and passed away peacefully, with his family by his side, on September 21, 2017 at Rosewood Village.

Doug is survived by his daughters Diane (Aldo) and Donna (Maggie & Tucker); daughter-in-law Lori; granddaughters Lindsey (Murray), Kirstie (Jeremy) and Haley (Mark); and great grandchildren Mackenzie, Brady and Dominic.
As a young man, Doug had a passion for flying planes. Some of his first dates with Paula were spent in small planes. Once they were married his passions changed from flying to family.
He dedicated his life to taking care of his family. He was an avid golfer and curler, but his favourite memories were made camping and fishing at Gray Creek with his extended family.
Doug was also a long time member of the Warfield Volunteer Fire Department and spent a few years as a Village Councillor.
Cremation has taken place; Gwen Ziprick of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services has been entrusted with the arrangements.
