Pat MicallefAs above, it has truly been decades *, since we worked together at 3M in Ottawa. When I started, I was the young guy with tons of energy. Doug always had a smile, a kind word, and (when necessary) a suggested better approach to resolving a problem. * I was 19 when I started at 3M (in the parts department) and my 65th birthday is this month! (Louise and I got engaged then married while I was with 3M.) We've all worn-out bits and strained this or that as we've traveled this long dusty road: Doug will be missed by all who came to know him. Pat & Louise Micallef, Pickering, Ontario
