Who was Doug Barron?
Doug was born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, during a period of athletics and mischief that he recalled with affection. He attended Waterloo Lutheran University for a brief period of time to study business and economics before deciding to buy a motorbike and travel to ‘get his mind together’.
Anyone who, decades later, saw him riding around on his scooter “Purple Hazel” while sporting a leopard print helmet may speak to the fact that his sense of adventure and love of wheels remained unaffected. Doug relocated to Halifax in the 1970s, where he eventually met his wife Jenn.
Together, they would go on trips, encourage one another in their artistic efforts, and gleefully host friends and family for a variety of joyous occasions, particularly the summer and winter solstices, after which they were frequently seen dancing in the rubble. Doug cherished his roles as a father and, later, as “GrandDoug.”
He had no qualms about loading the car and going on small and large adventures, especially if swimming was involved. Being in the ocean, whether he was surfing the waves, boogie boarding with his girlfriends, or simply bobbing around like a seal, brought Doug the greatest happiness. His season to shine was always the summer.
Doug began his radio career in Toronto and Halifax. He was great at finding and playing new music, joking around with guests, and planning the lineup. On CBC’s Weekend Mornings, Doug appeared as ‘Deputy Doug’ for the last time.
He also had cameos in movies and television, but most people knew him as Steve Rogers from ‘Trailer Park Boys’. Although Doug was exceptionally brilliant in several areas, proficiency was rarely the main goal. He drew with vigor from his endless reservoir of imagination.
Doug would undertake something wholeheartedly if he thought it would be enjoyable, significant, or intriguing. He created short films, painted, composed songs, and, most frequently, got his pals together for a variety of musical projects. He cherished his neighborhood and enjoyed listening to the music over the years.
