HOPKINS, Douglas Kenney
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Doug Hopkins, 53, on February 3, 2017.
Born in Port Morien, he was the son of the late Brad and Ruth Hopkins.
Dougie will always be remembered as a loving father, caring man and a hard worker with a great sense of humour. He was employed as a truck driver, labourer and manager at the family business, H. Hopkins Ltd., for the majority of his life before moving to Innisfail, Alberta where he worked as a Machinist. Doug enjoyed kayaking, going on impromptu road trips and “finding the deals” at local yard sales. He was especially proud when he went skydiving for his 50th Birthday. He lived life to the fullest.
He will be greatly missed by his wife of 26 years, Ria; his girls, Erica (Matthew) and Liz (Justin); brothers, Donald (Dawn) and Davey Hopkins; sisters, Louise (Gilbert) Ferguson, Edie (Brendan) Shaw and Sheila (Irvin); mother-inlaw, Thelma Pronk and by his nieces, nephews and extended family.
Besides his parents he was predeceased by his brother, Eric; father-in-law, John Pronk and nephew, Tyler Pronk.
There will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday February 15 at 2 p.m. in St. John’s United Church in Port Morien.
“Fare thee well”
