It is with a very heavy heart that I must share that a great friend and positive influence in the tenkara community, Doug Heggart, has passed away.
I am absolutely devastated by the news of Doug’s untimely death. Doug was an incredibly generous and kind person. We shared some great times on the water and on dry land. Doug was a super positive individual who was ready to share fishing with all in the community. Doug always showed a tremendous disposition to help; his energy and enthusiasm was always contagious when I spent time with him. I will really miss him, and my heart is with his family.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 19th at 11am at the Odd Fellows Lodge, 434 Main St., Longmont, CO
This is really sad. He will be missed.
R.I.P Doug Heggart. Deepest sympathy to his family, Nina & Ron, Charlene and Donna, and their families.
Doug, we are all going to miss you. Rest In Peace buddy. Your spirit lives on with all of us.
Doug always inspired me with his lust for life, taking advantage of every moment to get outdoors and make to most of the best part of being alive. All my heart felt sympathies to his family, friends and the outdoors that will miss his presence.
