It is with deep sadness to report the passing of one of our own. GTMAA member Doug Andrew passed away on July 16, 2013 in his 84th year after battling heart disease. Doug was a member of the club for nearly 30 years, joining in 1984 along with his late son Robert. In his early years he served as a firefighter with both the Long Branch and Etobicoke fire departments. Doug was an expert in fleet maintenance and vehicle records, having worked at Lafrance Foamite and later as a fleet manager for TNT trucking. Doug and Robert also purchased and restored an open cab Lafrance pumper together. Doug was loved and well-respected within the trucking industry and amongst fire departments across North America. Doug was interred at Glendale Memorial Gardens (1810 Albion Road) in Rexdale.
