JOHN WATSON DOUGLAS (published on July 07, 2010)

JOHN WATSON DOUGLAS Suddenly, on July 3, 2010 John passed on to his eternal life at the age of 82 years. John was one of a family of nine born to the late Patrick and Maria Douglas at Hilton, MB on June 25, 1928. It was there he received his education. John spent his early adult life at Hilton. Apart from working one fall on an oil pipeline in the Huntsville area of Ontario, he worked at odd jobs in the Hilton area. In 1961 he obtained employment with a furnace company in Winnipeg where he worked until he retired in 1993. He then continued to make his home in Winnipeg. His thoughts, though, were so often of his early life at Hilton. Besides his parents, John was predeceased by his brothers, William and Robert; sisters Jean and Marion, brothers-in-law, Edward Rorabeck and John Pestrick; and sister-in-law Iona Crawford. Surviving John is his brother Patrick of Oak River, MB, sisters, Elizabeth Rorabeck and Dorothea Large both of Winnipeg, and Margaret Smith of Vancouver, sister-in-law Sheila Douglas of Winnipeg; as well as numerous nephews and nieces. A graveside service and burial will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, July 9, 2010 at the Hilton Cemetery, southwest of Glenboro, MB. NEIL BARDAL INC. 949-2200
