Douglas 'Dougie' Benstead

We were so incredibly saddened to hear of Dougie’s passing. Such a kind hearted generous gentle man. Dougie didn’t need to be the loudest at any gathering, he was instead full of wisdom and someone to go to when you needed some sage advice. A very wise soul.  Dougie was never happier than when he was (quietly) helping others. Dougie would move heaven and earth to help you ( and probably find some much needed D.I.Y to do during that move lol) ….My fondest memories are of when I’d see Dougie and Lel together. Childhood sweethearts. Both with that glint in their eyes of unwavering love for one another. You’d swear that had only just met. Fiercely protective of one another, and their family and friends. it was an absolute privilege to have known Dougie. Like others, I just wish we  had known him longer.                 RIP Dougie, you legend of a man and our love to Lel and the family.    Jason & Linda xxx
