John Doucette

Doucette, John

June 12, 1922 – May 5, 2015

John was known as Jean, growing up in a large French speaking family in Saskatchewan. There were 12 children in the family, it’s no wonder John always had a hearty appetite.

After coming to Port Alberni, John worked on the booms for many years and had three step-children and two daughters.

John and Ruth met in Port Alberni and moved to Ladysmith after his retirement. He loved to garden and lent a helping hand whenever needed. He was busy with the Eagles and also with the Ladysmith OAP.

If you knew John, you’ll remember his happy smile and all of his little songs and poems. He was a kind man and is missed by his family, his children, step-children, grandchildren and his many friends.

After leaving his home on First Avenue, Ladysmith, John moved in to LaRosa and then to the Lodge on 4th where he was liked by other residents and the kind staff members, who took such good care of him. Special thanks to them and to Dr. Manny Fritsch.

By request there will be no service.
