June 30, 1947 - May 25, 2018
Surrounded by his loving family, Doug’s life on earth ended peacefully on May 25, 2018 at the age of 70 in High River following a 4-year battle with ALS that he fought with courage and strength. Doug’s journey into eternity began at the same time and we know he was welcomed by his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, with the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. Your reward is waiting for you.” Doug is survived by his loving family, wife, Rita of 47 years; two children, Kim (Ryan) White of Bastrop, LA; Derek (Darcie) of Corunna, ON; five grandchildren Cole, Angelina, Annalise, Archer, Daniel. Siblings Eleanore (Ron) Johnson, Reg (Dianne), Muriel (Don) Hiebert, Howard (Carol), Phyllis, Les (Cindy); as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Doug lived his life to the max and it was filled with people he loved. He had a passion for the church and for helping victims of disasters through volunteering with Mennonite Disaster Services. He was the ‘go to’ guy if you needed help with anything. A sensitive man who would shed tears if a favourite hymn was being sung, and a visionary for what could be. He had an open door policy for anyone who wanted to visit or share a concern. Doug leaves a huge hole in the lives of all who knew him. Interment service will take place on Friday, June 1st at 1:00 p.m. at the Trinity Mennonite Church Cemetery. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 1st at 3:00 p.m. at the Trinity Mennonite Church in DeWinton. If desired memorial donations may be made to the Mennonite Disaster Service (www.canadahelps.org), or to the ALS Society of Alberta (www.alsab.ca). Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (Craig Snodgrass) 403.652.4242.
