Douglas “Doug” Joseph Boron of Hanover and formerly of Kincardine passed away, with family by his side, at his home on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, at the age of 71.


Beloved husband of Dr. Susan Boron (née Enkin).


Remembered by his brothers Jeff Boron (Linny DVine) of Victoria, B.C. and Wes Boron of Tiverton, and by brother-in-law Chris Boron-Musick of Kincardine.


He will be missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.


Predeceased by his parents Joseph and Audrey (née Bailie) Boron and sister Lisa Boron-Musick.


Doug was passionate about everything. Within and beyond his position as Palliative Care Director in Kincardine, Doug’s life work was support for the dying and their families.


A professional artist, he painted powerful, flowing colour field canvasses. He inspired young artists, teaching at the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Georgian College. He was a farmer, maple syrup producer, photographer, machinist and a builder. An accomplished outdoorsman, he shared his passion for hunting, fishing and conservation with many, including the young people he mentored. But essential to him was time outdoors alone with his dogs.


He could not stand by, he fought injustice in any form his entire life.


Visitation was held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home in Kincardine from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 12 and from 10-11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, with the funeral service that followed at 11:30 a.m.
