CLINTON ROBERT DOUGLAS (published on September 13, 2008)



CLINTON ROBERT DOUGLAS Clinton Robert Douglas of Brandon, beloved husband of Jodi and dear father of Zoe, Noah and Kezia, passed away accidentally in Fort McMurray, Alberta on Tuesday, September 9, 2008 at the age of 36 years. Clint was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on April 26, 1972. His family moved north to Dawson City, Yukon where he started pre-school. He received most of his education in northern B.C. After graduating in Lynn Lake, Manitoba, his family moved to Brandon. Clint held various jobs and started work at Carnation Foods in Carberry in April 1993. While working there, he met Jodi Curtis and they married on July 26, 1997. Clint continued to work at The Plant until May of 2006. He then went west to Fort McMurray where he found work as a carpenter in training. During this time, he lived in camps and came home any chance he could to spend time with his family. Recently, he had changed his career choice to Power Engineering. Clint was very athletic and loved all sports. His favourites being golf, hockey and basketball. He enjoyed kicking ass in golf whether it was Playstation or the real thing. When the Detroit Red Wings played, Clint would call and make sure Noah knew - so he could watch the game too. During breaks or after a goal, they would call each other to discuss the game. (This was often long past Noah's bedtime!!) Just recently, Clint gave Noah his collection of Red Wing figurines. Clint's passion and best achievement was being Dad to Zoe, his baby girl, age 10, Noah his boy, age 8 and Kezia, his princess, age 5. When each of the children were born, he took parental leave and during that time formed a strong and solid bond with each child. He missed them so much when he was working away but called every night (the longest phone call on record being eight hours to Jodi a whole shift). Clint also loved chatting with his mom, Wendy (who affectionately called him tintin ), and his sister, Michelle and her family. They all shared a very close relationship. Clint especially enjoyed a game of golf with Donny, Kyle and John whenever he came to town. This past summer, Zoe attended summer camp and was so surprised when Daddy came to pick her up and Kezia shared all the news of her first day of school on the phone with Daddy, just this past Monday. Clint is survived by his wife Jodi, children Zoe, Noah and Kezia, mother Wendy (John); sister Michelle (Donny), nephew Kyle, niece Karly and many other extended family members. He was predeceased by his father Robert. The Funeral Service will be held at Central United Church, 327-8th Street, Brandon, on Wednesday, September 17, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Shannon McCarthy officiating. Interment will follow at the Brandon Cemetery. A Memorial Service will also be held at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street, Winnipeg, on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. Donations in memory of Clint may be made to the Douglas Children Trust Fund, care of the Westoba Credit Union, 3300 Victoria Avenue, Brandon, MB, R7B 0N2 or to any Branch of the Westoba Credit Union.
