Douglas Ferguson joined Peggy Matilda Ferguson, his loving wife of 77 years, on June 30, 2020. Peggy passed on February 5, 2020. Douglas, born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, was a decorated WWII veteran who served two terms as a navigator for the RAF/RCAF. His courage earned him a Distinguished Flying Cross which was presented by King George VI. After the war, he graduated from the University of Toronto as an aeronautical engineer, and among other notable accomplishments, contributed to the design of the Canadarm. He later taught graduate engineering at the University of Waterloo. Doug loved to pose questions and find practical solutions. One of his notable projects was the design and construction of the family cottage, an octagonal haven
