March 2, 1965 – July 15, 2012
Doug Klaning of Calgary, passed away on Sunday, July 15, 2012 at the age of 47 years to a place of peace, rest and no pain.
Doug was the joy of our lives, the spark that made our family fun. We always looked forward to him coming home. He took most of his schooling in Red Deer. He had many friends; all were very important to him.
He loved sports, hockey, skiing and most of all golfing. He had just won a golf tournament and called to tell us. He was both an artist and mathematician. Doug endured chronic back pain daily plus debilitating diabetes – yet he still went to work every day and did it well. He was a born salesman with wonderful manners.
He leaves to mourn the joy of his life, daughter Makena, his Mother Shirley (Marvin) Mackie; two sisters Deborah Lengyel and Gloria (Scott) Henriksen; two nieces Bria and Denae; nephew Brody; father Leif J. Klaning his golfing partner. His pal Bosly the large black lab, his running partner, his soul mate and best friend Sheila Musgrove.
He was predeceased by his son Tyler resulting from a car accident. After which Doug fell into a deep depression he couldn’t lift himself out of. Our hearts cry out because you’re gone, but we’ll meet again in Heaven.
