REA, Douglas Kenneth

October 6, 1955 – Stettler, Alberta
March 20, 2017 – Cabo San Lucas

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Douglas Kenneth Rea on March 20th, 2017 in Cabo San Lucas.

Doug said goodbye peacefully in a resort much like his beloved place at Buffalo Lake, surrounded by tranquil waters, sandy beaches and sunshine. He would want his family and friends to carry this message of remembrance in their hearts.

Doug loved his wife Angela deeply. Their special relationship was one of a kind, a true genuine bond with unconditional love. Second to Angela was the special bond with his children; Derrick, Janine, his much loved daughter-in-law Emilie, and he was very excited about the arrival of his first grandson. If you were fortunate to know Doug, you became a better person. Doug (Dad) will be deeply missed by his friends and family.

Doug is survived by his loving wife Angela; daughter Janine; son and daughter-in-law Derrick and Emilie; his sisters, Sherri and Kathy; and numerous in-laws. His nieces and nephews held a special place in his heart.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 200, 119 – 14th Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 1Z6 Telephone: (403) 264-5549, www.heartandstroke.ca. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Doug Rea, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    My deepest sympathies. Doug was a great mentor, boss and friend. He left a lasting impression on me as a man of genuine integrity, honesty, fairness, compassion, and care. There was nothing I felt I could not confide in him. He wore his heart on his sleeve and talked of his dear wife Angie and his beloved family often and joyfully. This world needs more people like Doug. He has been a positive influence in my life and in the lives of many of us I’m sure. His passing is a great loss, but I consider his time and presence in my life as only gain. There’s little chance I’ll ever forget him. God speed you to heaven Doug!

One never knew what craziness we would get into, but no matter what ,Doug was always game. So many kids all over the place and Auntie Beth calm no matter what happened. As well I enjoyed visits with you both at the lake – of course there was always a story or two Doug would just have to bring up. His charisma was infectious.
    He will be missed by so many. I’m so sorry.

Jesus said, “I am the Resurrection and the life; those who believe in Me, though they die, will live; and everyone who lives and believes in Me, will never die”. Trusting in the Lord and trusting that Doug is safe in the arms of Jesus, the sadness of death gives way to the bright promise of immortality. Dear Lord, please bless the Rea family. Give them Hope and Strength. Help them to Trust in your plan for Doug. Walk with them in the difficult days ahead.

    Dearest Angie & Family,
    I write this on behalf of my mother Ellen as i know she does not have a computer and I’m positive she would want her deepest love and sympathy passed on. She always thought you were such a perfect match and knew you both as youngsters too – seeing you at the Lake every summer. I have this strange feeling that Dad and Doug are looking down on us right this very moment. May the Lord’s Amazing Grace be upon you and may your memories and love sustain you and your family. Love, Hugs, & Prayers, Ellen Streit xo

  108. There is a Neil Diamond song, “Done Too Soon”, that recites the names of noted and famous individuals who, given their evident contribution to the world, in his estimation died too early in life. This is definitely the case for my good friend Doug!
    However, like those named in the song, Doug’s legacy is obviously huge not only with his family, friends, neighbours (Stettler, home, & lake), but also, Doug will not be easily forgotten amongst those of us who knew him Downtown and in his professional capacity. He could be counted on to be genuinely open, caring and fair. Though “Done Too Soon”, Doug’s legacy with me speaks of a life well lived, without reservation, living in full consideration for those around him and particularly in such a special way for me.
    …. Much sadness! Much celebration!
    He will be missed!

  109. My sincerest sympathy. I worked with Doug for a number of years at Gulf Oil, first at the Rimbey Gas Plant and later in Calgary. I would also run into him almost daily either in the lobby or the elevator of the Standard Life Building where Tidal and the company I worked for had offices. Doug was well liked and respected by all who worked with him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  121. I am so sorry to hear about your family’s loss. I will fondly remember all the times we spent together at IG events, especially our last one this year. I had a special heart to heart with Doug. He was looking forward to his next chapter of his life, spending more time with family. He will be a mentor, a true family man.

  122. To Angie & your youngsters. I regret being unable to attend the funeral of my good friend Doug Rea. I reminisce doing bachelor time with Doug at our cabins at Buffalo Lake. Catching, cleaning, cooking, eating & even digesting the pike. All by ourselves! We’d grab a bow & arrows & a hunting knife (none of which we were really allowed to take) & go into the trees like genuine woodsmen. And burning doughnuts in the bay with Grandpa Horne’s 12 foot rowboat with a small motor on the back. Some folks did not take kindly to that…those young whipper snappers…showing off. Some things stick with you…like Doug’s laugh. It was contagious. Goodbye old friend…be thinking of you until the day I join you up there in the heavens. …Rick Horne

    words I live by to this Day.
