September 26, 1952-September 4, 2023
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father and grandfather. Doug passed away on Monday, September 4, 2023, at the age of 70. Doug will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 47 years,Kim; his son, Justin Pross (Annie & Jonah); his daughter, Kayla Goerzen (Mike, Kenna & Emma), Trinity & Ayden Pross (Michelle Backstrom) and many more family and friends.
Doug was born in Olds, AB on September 26, 1952, to Lester and Mary Pross. Doug grew up in rural Didsbury, living north of town until he was about 10 and then moving to the farm west of Didsbury. Doug met his wife Kim, and they were married September 4, 1976. Doug and Kim had 2 children, Justin born in 1981 and followed by his daughter Kayla in 1987.
Doug spent his years trucking and working as a heavy-duty mechanic until his retirement in 2006. During retirement Doug enjoyed time with friends, riding his Goldwing and vacationing down south, but most of all, his greatest joy was spending his time with his children, grandchildren and having coffee with his friends.
Doug will be missed so very much but we take comfort in the fact that he is able to rest peacefully and be reunited with his mom, dad, his mother-in-law, Yvonne Sullivan and nephew Danny Scott. We know he is enjoying a laugh and catching up on old times over a cup of coffee with his good friends Andy and Gary.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Tom Baker Cancer Center, 1331-29 St NW Calgary, AB T2N 4N2. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Messages of condolence for the family may be left at www.prairierosefunerals.ca
