Obituary of John (Doug) Douglas CAGEORGE
March 16, 1945 - Montreal, Quebec
December 22, 2020 – Calgary, Alberta
Doug Cageorge, beloved husband of Glenda Hubick of Calgary, AB, passed away on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 at the age of 75 years.
Doug was born in Montreal, QC, to John and Margaret (nee McGiffin) Cageorge. He was the second child and first son of four children. Doug and his siblings grew up in Lachine, QC, where their father was a physician. Summers were spent in the Eastern townships at Knowlton, where Doug followed his parents in their love of golf. In winter, he pursued hockey and played goal on the university team at Sir George Williams (where he was scouted by the Boston Bruins).
Doug’s mother passed away when he was eight years old, and later his father married Mary Beggs who brought her four children to the blended family.
Doug moved to Calgary in 1978 and pursued his work as a chartered accountant. He worked for several companies before going out on his own, specializing in taxation. Doug loved his work and was well respected in this field.
Doug’s love of golf continued all his life. He regularly travelled to Arizona with his best friend and wife, Glenda, to enjoy the warm sun and golfing during the winter months. A long-time member of the Silver Springs Golf & Country Club, Doug played his last game there in September 2020, hooked to an oxygen tank. “CA Squared’s” family thanks the members of his golf group for their great friendship and companionship over the years.
Doug was well known for his financial prudence, dry sense of humour, love of cars, golf attire, and the latest golf equipment innovations. Doug was a loving father and greatly enjoyed time spent with his grandchildren.
Besides his loving wife, Doug is survived by his son Sean (Jennifer) and daughter Brynn (Wade); his grandchildren, Chase, Morgan, Dashiell and Daegan; his sister Joanne Lawrence, and his brothers, David (Sharon) and Robert (Marsha). He is also survived by Glenda’s sons, Clayton (Neasreen) and Chris (Chris) and Clayton’s daughters, Vienna and Hannah; as well as numerous cousins, nephews, and nieces across Canada and the USA.
