McDougall, Len
September 9, 2021

1938-2021

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Len McDougall at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence on September 9, 2021.

He leaves behind his best friend and wife of 57 years Nancy Walters McDougall, their children Bob (Catherine), Jennifer (the late Robert) Alison (Kevin) and Susan (Frank). His beloved grandchildren Jordan (Amanda), Eric, Adrianne, Jacob, Michael, Jeremy, and Alex.

Len was born to Donald and Hildred in Montreal on October 22, 1938, the seventh of eight children, Albert, John, Gerald, Donald, Mary, Helen and Veronica.  At a very young age, the family moved to Montebello where his obsession for all sports began, in particular for tennis, golf and his Montreal Canadiens. Len attended McGill University where he excelled in hockey and making lifelong friends before embarking on a successful career with Canada Life.

Len loved his family, many friends, cold beer and all his dogs. Len’s passions included travel, golf trips, lunch with his buddies, his home in Florida and fundraising, in particular, TDPCR Annual Golf Tournament.

Len was always there to brighten the lives of others, share a story and lend a hand.

Len will be remembered by his incredible sense of humour, inquisitive demeanour and love for life. Len was a good man. We will miss him.

Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation at Voluntas Funeral Home, 4695 St-Jean Blvd., Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC H9H 2A7 on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 1-4 p.m. & 7-9 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be held at St. Edmund of Canterbury Church the next day, by invitation only.

The family would like to thank the Cedars Cancer Center, in particular Dr. Aprikian, Dr. Rajan, Julie, Rachel and Annie.

Donations in his memory to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence or West Island Cancer Wellness Center would be greatly appreciated.

    I played old timers hockey with Len and his good friend Bob Anderson, in many West Island tournaments.
    A very generous man, that would have scored more often, if he had not helped his team mates try to score the goals before him.

    An amazing gentleman that would have scored more often, if not so generous, in trying to help others get the goals.
