Douglas Brett BIOLLO
Peacefully, on September 19th, Mr. Douglas Brett Biollo of Edmonton passed away at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
Doug is lovingly remembered by his two sisters: Marilyn (Peter) Sorochuk of Edmonton and Sr. Elaine Biollo of Kelowna, British Columbia. Doug had three nieces, Christie McLeod and Michelle, Sheila (Biollo Sullivan) and four nephews: Bradley (Anita), Derek (Aesook), Craig, and Kent (Melania).
He was predeceased by his wife Barbara, his parents John and Catherine and three brothers: Kenneth, Roderick and John “Gary”.
He had attended St. Alphonse and St. Joseph’s High School. He worked for the Sun Newspaper and Eco-Medical Supply keeping the books. He retired early because of health concerns. He was a keen sports fan following the Oilers and Elks (Eskimos) for years. He loved animals especially his cats of which he had many over the years.
From high school on, Doug had faithful friends who accompanied him through the ups and downs of life: Tom (Maeve) Caruthers and Brian (Linda) Burns without whom he would have been lost. We are very grateful to them.
During his final days in the hospital he received excellent care by the doctors and nurses who treated and him with respect and concern.
Cremation has taken place and an internment will follow at a later date in St. Joachim’s Cemetery, Edmonton.
