MACDOUGALL, William Henry (Harry) Sgt. (Ret.) - It is with immense sorrow that we share with you the heartbreaking news of Harry’s passing, peacefully, in his 84th year, at the Perley and Rideau Veteran’s Health Center, Ottawa, Ontario, on October 16th, 2020. Beloved husband of 50 years to the late Rhea (nee Higginson). Loved and cherished always by son Kevin MacDougall (Carolyn), of Pickerington, Ohio, and daughter, Heather ‘Nancy’ Blake, of Owls Head, Maine. Treasured Grandpa of Brock and Bryce MacDougall (Ohio), and Maeve Blake (Colorado). Son of the late Clarence and Sadie MacDougall (nee Dupe). Predeceased by brothers Melvin MacDougall (Audrey), Sinclair MacDougall (Marilyn), and John MacDougall (late Vivian), and sister, Ruby (late Cec). Predeceased also by brothers-in-law Bill Higginson (Joan), and Bob Higginson (late Marge). Former brother-in-law of Gloria MacDougall. Much loved uncle of Paul MacDougall (Faye), David MacDougall (Jennifer), Karen MacDougall, Jamie MacDougall, and Rhea Higginson (Adam MacDonald). Great uncle of Alyssa Cain (Ryan), Sam MacDougall, and Amber, Talia, and Billy Wootton. He will forever be remembered for his sharp sense of humour, his gentle nature, his compassion and kindness to others, and his great pride for his Nova Scotian heritage. His delightful telephone calls to family and friends were always welcomed and appreciated, and will be sadly missed. Survived by many nieces, nephews, close friends, and extended family all across Canada. Sincerest gratitude to the dedicated souls and loving hearts at the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Center, who gently cared for him with kindness and respect. In accordance with Dad’s wishes, cremation has taken place, and a private celebration of life is planned, at a later date, in his beloved Cape Breton.

What a privilege to have been a friend of your wonderful Dad and Mother. We all met at the "Jamboree" dances at the Memorial Centre in Pembroke as young couples. We all raised our families together and remained friends for over 50 years. You Dad was fun to be around, we are proud to have called him our friend. God Bless you in your loss

We would like to give our sincere condolences to the MacDougall Family on the passing of our good friend Harry. He always made a visit to the Humphrey home on Cartier St. in Sydney when he was in town. Lots of stories & laughs when we were together. We loved him dearly.

We first met Harry at the golf course In Petawawa 30 years ago, and on many golf courses thereafter. He had such a kind, pleasant way about him, always quick with a joke or funny story. Our deepest condolences to the MacDougall family.

To Harry's family, my prayers and thoughts are with you at this very sad time in your life. It is always hard to say good-bye to another Cape Bretioner but knowing he had a good life and influenced many with fond memories it is some comfort. Also knowing he will once again return to his beloved home and knowing he is at peace there is nothing more to ask. Share your feelings and thoughts with your loved one, it will help you with your changing journey.
