DOUCETTE, Ge­orge Brian

Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

It is with pro­found sad­ness that the family of Ge­orge Brian Doucette, 67, the son of the late Henry and Greta Doucette (Ma­cLean) an­nounce his pass­ing on May 16, 2017 at the Glace Bay Hospi­tal sur­rounded by his family. Ge­orge is the last sur­viv­ing mem­ber of his im­me­di­ate family.

Ge­orge leaves be­hind his soul­mate and best friend of 47 years, Dorothy (Snook); sons, Brian and James; four grand­chil­dren, Brook­lyn Shaw, Lu­cas Jack­son, Kash and Kay­lum Cronie; also left to mourn his pass­ing are his ex­tended family; family by mar­riage, but who loved Ge­orge, more as a brother than a brother-in-law, the Snook family, Brenda Sim­mons Snook (Mark Ap­ple­ton), Ch­eryl Camp­bell Snook, Jim Snook (Bev.), Shel­don Snook (He­len MacDon­ald), Rhonda MacMullin (Steve); spe­cial broth­ers-in­law, Dave Sim­mons and Jack Camp­bell; spe­cial niece who he loved like a daugh­ter, Melissa Sim­mons-Snow (Billy Gra­cie); great nephew, Brett Snow; be­sides many nieces and neph­ews too many too men­tion, he loved them all and their vis­its.

Be­sides his par­ents, Ge­orge was pre­de­ceased by his broth­ers, Michael and Henry; sis­ters, Marie and Bar­bara Ann in in­fancy; fa­ther-in-law, Steve; broth­ers-in-law, Ste­vie and Kevin Snook. Ge­orge was liked by all who knew him and his non­judg­men­tal ways, his quick wit and one-lin­ers. He al­ways loved and ac­cepted peo­ple for who they were, never what they had.

There will be no vis­i­ta­tion as per Ge­orge’s re­quest.

Cre­ma­tion has taken place un­der the di­rec­tions of Pat­ten Funeral Home.

There will be a pri­vate get to­gether held at Ge­orge’s res­i­dence (4 Mor­ri­seville St.) on May 18, 2017 be­tween 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to of­fer con­do­lences and share mem­o­ries of Ge­orge with the family.

The family would like to thank the VON and Pal­lia­tive Care for their care of Ge­orge over the last year. “We’ll love you for­ever Ge­orgie,” Your family.
