Former Headteacher at Casllwchwr County Primary School and R.Y.A. Coach-Examiner. Doug's passion was sailing; over a sixty-year period he taught thousands of people, from all walks of life to sail in South and West Wales. In doing so, he continued the family connection established by his late father Garfield, who between 1936 and 1947 was Coxswain of the last sail and oar lifeboat in New Quay West Wales.

Doug won many prizes for Sailing, he was a devoted husband to Jeanne who played Hockey for Wales and represented Great Britain in Gymnastics with whom he is now reunited.

A great inspiration they will both be missed by so many especially their close family who would like to thank everyone who donated to the RNLI in their memory.
