Raye Lindsay Obituary, Death – Doug, who was 81 years old, lived in Kitchener. He had previously lived in Truro, Scarborough, Thunder Bay, Flin Flon, Winnipeg, Maple Creek, Toronto, and many other cities and towns in between. He was the devoted husband of Sandra Lindsay (née Keddy) for 57 years before she passed away. Beloved father of Ian, who is married to Kelley and lives in Andover, Minnesota; Bruce, who lives in Peterborough, Ontario;
Dawn, who is married to Phillip Dykeman and lives in Truro, Nova Scotia; and Heather, who is married to Derek Whitehouse and lives in Bradenton, Florida. Beloved grandfather of Eleanor, Isabel, Clifford, Emma, Sarah, Thomas, Samuel, Lianna (Nathaniel Singer), Elijah, Victoria, Connor (Kelly), Adrianna, Laura Grace, and Carson. Proud grandpa of all. Respected and cherished brother-in-law of Jim Keddy and his wife Carol, the late Robert Keddy and his surviving wife Eva, as well as Carol Simunic and her husband Emil (Emil).
The surviving child of Dorothy Martin, who passed away. Doug received his degree from the Salvation Army College in Toronto, and it was there that he first met Sandra and fell in love with her. After completing his education, he was assigned to a church in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. He started a long-distance relationship with Sandra, who was stationed in Tweed, Ontario, but they were still romantically involved.
After getting married, both of them moved to Ian’s hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba, to work as assistant pastors there. Doug and Sandra prayed to God on multiple occasions, and on each of those occasions, God answered their prayers by pointing them in the right direction. After accepting a position as pastor in Flin Flon, they uprooted their family and moved from Manitoba to the city where Bruce was born. After that, they settled in Thunder Bay, where they both worked as pastors and where their identical twin daughters, Dawn and Heather, were born. Doug was the host of a call-in Christian radio show during that time, and it was very successful in attracting a large number of listeners very quickly. In addition to that, he became a ventriloquist, and his family affectionately referred to him as “Ronny.”
