Douglas Morrison Bezanson, age 60, of Digby passed away on July 16th, 2020 at QEII, V.G. Site, Halifax. Born in Antigonish he was the son of Newton and Dorothy (White) Bezanson.

Douglas was always there when you needed him, he would drop everything to help someone.

He will be forever loved and missed by his spouse Juanita Pleau Sabean of Digby; his sisters, Susan Bezanson (Ian Holmes) of Wellington, Martha Bezanson of Antigonish and especially, Candice Sabean as well as all his children, grandchildren, great-grand children and many nephews and nieces.
