We send our heartfelt sympathy to the Sykes family on your loss.
We first met Doug flying into the Wiarton Airport from Chatham. When we moved to Hope Bay in 2004, and hangered our plane in Wiarton, we had many good visits with Doug and his "crew" in the office of the workshop and at the gas pumps. Doug and Marion were real treasures for the airport - always so helpful, dedicated and interesting.

Lynn and John McCurdy
