We regretfully announce that Doug passed away rather suddenly but peacefully at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute while surrounded by love and tears on Saturday evening, November 23, 2019. Douglas Gerrard “Doug” McHale of Arnprior was 61 years of age. Beloved and devoted husband and best friend of Sharron (nee Bergevin). Dearly loved and proud “Dad” and mentor of Brian (Morgan Eady) of Ottawa; Tim and Shawn (Anna), both of Arnprior. Proud Grandpa of Arkell. Dear brother of Gary McHale (Bea) of Kemptville; Wayne McHale (Michelle) of Dundas and Anne Barrett (Chris) of Braeside. Son of the late Dominic and Anna (nee Clarke) McHale; Doug was also predeceased by a sister, Sylvia. Fondly remembered by the Mulvihill and Berthelette families; many nieces and nephews, cousins, co-workers, neighbors and great friends. Doug was a quiet and humble man. His kindness, his nique sense of humour and his willingness to help others will be missed by many. Doug spent several years at the E.B Eddy Paper Company in Hull before finding employment closer to home at the Pilon Family Funeral Home and then finally settling into the production department at Pillar 5 Pharma (formerly Pfizer) in Arnprior. Fittingly, Doug’s final care has been entrusted to his former colleagues and friends at the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel Ltd., 50 John Street North, Arnprior where visitation was held on Friday, November 29th from 2 to 3:45 p.m. A Tribute to Doug will follow in the Pilon Family Chapel at 4 o’clock. In memory of Doug, please consider a donation to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
