ROUSELL, Douglas (Doug) Hilton

July 15, 1949 – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
March 7, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Doug on March 7th 2015, after fighting a courageous battle with cancer for five years.

Doug grew up in Saskatoon and as a child showed early passion and talent for drawing and painting which carried on into adulthood. He moved to Calgary in 1970, where he pursued a short career in drafting. Doug then moved on to fabricating signs of all sorts eventually starting his own business. He later pursued a brief career in the financial industry with WFG. Doug enjoyed the outdoors and participated in several sports including: hockey, skiing, football, tennis and hiking. He touched the hearts and souls of many people; living out his faith with a sense of humor, compassion for others, and great love for his family.

Doug will be remembered by Judy, his loving wife of forty-two years; his son Tyler (Allison), and their daughters, Noella, Eliza and Vienna; his son Quinn (Sarah), and their children, Emily, Mikayla, Isaiah, Israel, Jasher, Venus and Nathan. He is survived by his siblings, Darlene (Larry), Louise (Tim), Bernie, Dan, Boyd and Curtis and numerous nieces and nephews. Doug was predeceased by his parents, Hilton, Audrey and Lois; and siblings Wayne and Colleen.

Funeral Services will be held at South Calgary Community Church (2900 Cedarbrae Drive S.W.) on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 2:00p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  5. Dear Tyler and Allison and family,

    I was saddened to hear of the passing of your dad. It is a reminder of how fragile life is and yet more so the incredible hope we have found in Christ, eternal life and the community of God.
    The profound absence of your dad and the grief it brings, although never replaced or forgotten, may he be remembered and celebrated for the man, father and grandfather he was.
    Amidst the sorrow, his values and beliefs live on through you and your family.

    My prayer is with you and for you.

    Psalm 116: 15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

    It was a sad day when I heard Doug has passed. He was a courageous Christian who loved life and his family. He was my best friend during my childhood on the farm. I often think of the good times we had playing in the bush, making up stories, and finding arrowheads. He will be missed by all who knew him and his memory will give us strength to carry on until we meet again in the sweet by and by.
