Spinney, Douglas Allan – Age 48, Middle Musquodoboit, passed away unexpectedly on November 1, 2015, at home. Born in Truro, he was a son of Elizabeth (Currie) Spinney and the late Douglas Spinney. Doug was always a hard worker and had been employed at various sawmills in the area. He would give anyone the shirt off his back and do without himself. Doug enjoyed telling stories and sharing a joke.
He will always be loved and sadly missed by his lifelong partner, Ruth Nieforth; brother, Dave (Juanita); stepdaughter, Juanita Nieforth (Paul); stepson, Christopher Nieforth; grandchildren, Rylund, Sabbation; as well as many extended family members. Doug was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Edward and Edna Currie; paternal grandparents, Ruby Charlton and Milton Spinney; step-granddaughter, Onika.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit. Friends are welcome to meet with the family on Saturday from 2-4 p.m. downstairs in Middleton United Church, Middle Musquodoboit. Memorial donations to Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia would be appreciated.
Many thanks to the neighbours and First Responders for all your kindness.
