I’m trying to find information on deceased man by the name of Doug Canada’s. I believe he was killed in a motorcycle accident recently. A memorial to him is attached to a Live Oak tree on highway 20 in Yuba County. This tree will be removed to make way for the proposed highway widening early next year. If anyone knows relatives or friends of this man they may want to secure the memorial before it is removed. Thanks
