In memory of
Douglas Martyn Bennett
Douglas Martyn Bennett July 21, 1956 - April 9, 2017 Bennett, Douglas Martyn M.Sc., RPF, FEC, P.Eng.Fellow July 21, 1956 - April 9, 2017 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Martyn Bennett, a devoted and caring husband, father and son. Doug was predeceased by his father Barry Bennett and is survived by his loving wife Edith, daughter, Kim; his mother Mary Bennett and sister Carol Anne Caulfield (David) and family. After obtaining his Forestry Degree at UBC, Doug worked for the Tahsis Company and later CIP Inc. in Gold River and Zeballos. He joined FERIC as a Senior Researcher and later became a Programme Leader and Forest Operations Research Manager at FPInnovations. During these years, his appreciation for details and engineering analytics led him to obtain his Masters Degree in Forest Engineering. Doug's compassion for others and his special way with words fostered a deep admiration and loyalty in those who worked with and for him. Doug treasured the time he spent with his family in the outdoors, hiking, skiing, boating and fishing on the West Coast and in the Discovery Islands. Among his many attributes and talents, Doug will be remembered for his selflessness, work ethic and for the vigour and humour with which he approached each day. A celebration of Doug's life will be held at Como Lake United Church, 535 Marmont St., Coquitlam on Tuesday April 25 at 1:30pm, with reception to follow. Donations may be made in Doug's memory to the BC Cancer Foundation or the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
