Mike Yuen — Mike talks about bridge

Rain rain go away!

Another sad news reached me. A friend and excellent bridge player, Doug Deschner-Red Deer Alberta had passed away.



Douglas Charles Deschner passed away unexpectedly of a heart attack on February 7, 2012 in Arizona at the age of 58.

He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Lorna; stepson Jeff Anderson (Shannon); grandchildren Charly and Sarah; his brother David (Linda); sisters Susan (Dwayne) Storey and Linda (Russell) Christofferson; as well as several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his uncle Frankie (Ruth) and brother-in-law Stan Armstrong Jr. (Helene).

The family invites friends to share their memories of Doug at a drop-in reception on Sunday, February 26 from 3 – 5 p.m. at the Red Deer Bridge Club, Bay 16, 5579 47 Street, Red Deer.

A private family ceremony will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Doug’s honour may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 202, 5913 50 Ave, Red Deer T4N 4C4.

To Lorna: So sorry for your lost, my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Have known Doug since we were teens in Red Deer many years ago. He encouraged those around him with an interest in the fine game of bridge to learn more about the game and support the game and its participants.

He will be missed.
