THOMAS DOUGLAS 1941 - 2017 It is with great sadness that we announce that Tommy passed away in the early morning of Thursday, March 16, 2017 at the age of 75. He will be lovingly remembered by his loving wife of 55 years, Ann, children, Colin, Graham (Dee), Lorraine (Rod) and grandchildren Matthew, Ethan, Nyah, Judy and Casey. He is survived by his siblings, Margaret, James, Alec, Irene, Anne and many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and many friends. He was predeceased by his loving parents, Ina and Thomas Douglas and siblings, William, John, Ellen, Frank, David, Joe and special brother-in-law, Chucky. Born in Glasgow, Scotland on April 30, 1941, where he grew up in a big family. In 1960 he married the love of his life, Ann and had three children. In 1967, our family immigrated to Canada in search of a new beginning. After arriving in Canada, he was employed by Joy Manufacturing and retired from CN Rail where he was a proud Union member. Tommy was a proud hardworking man and worked two jobs during his first seven years in Canada. This work ethic was instilled in all three of his children. Tommy and Ann moved to Morden three years ago and met many new friends through the Morden Legion, where he enjoyed snooker, chase the ace, bingo and the meat draw. Tommy was all things Scottish, while he loved Canada and all that this beautiful country had to offer, his heart belonged to Scotland and his family there. In Canada, he created a beautiful life; he worked hard, sacrificed and surrounded our family with many special friends who were like family to us. He always had a smile on his face and was well loved by everyone who knew him. He genuinely cared about people! He loved many things: dancing, sports, a wee red wine, the Legion, ice cream and this Scottish guy loved perogies. Tommy was an accomplished soccer player and played for many Winnipeg teams with Thistle being his favourite. Married to Ann for 55 years, theirs was a true love story. They were committed, loyal and lived a great life together right to the end. They were fortunate to travel back to Scotland many times, loved their two month stay in Mexico every year and made many happy memories at the cottage at Hillside beach. While we are heartbroken, we are grateful to have had such a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. A great example of a life well lived. Thank you to the many doctors who looked after Tommy over the years Dr. Bob Kroeker, Dr. Pat Harris, Dr. Meghan Chatwin, and Dr. Denis Caners. The care you provided allowed us to have him with us longer and for that we are forever grateful. To the many nurses at Boundary Trails Health Center that looked after Tommy, we thank you. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Boundary Trails Health Center Foundation, Winkler, Manitoba. Please come and join us as we celebrate our love for Tommy on Tuesday, March 28 at 2:00 p.m., 215 Legion, 3600 De Vries Ave., East St. Paul. Bring your best memories of Tommy to share. Thank you for everything you did for us! We love you and will never forget you! Wiebe Funeral Chapel, MordenIn care of arrangements wiebefuneralhomes.com
