We Remember

MCCOMBS, Douglas William Kenneth

Peacefully passed away on November 25, 2014 at the age of 75 in Kelowna, BC. He leaves behind son Jason McCombs (Theresa), daughter Jodi Nazer (Rob), grandchildren Brooke, Blake, Madison and Mackenzie whom all loved and cherished him. He has also left behind his sister Kerry Enns (Brian), brother in law Larry McClarty (Jackie) and many nieces, nephews and great friends. Doug was predeceased by wife, Gerri, mother Marge McCombs and father Herb McCombs.

Doug had a few hobbies… indulging in a bakers’ dozen from time to time ,wood working and of course he also enjoyed bragging about the numerous beer consumption records he held at legion # 9. He loved listening to music and was a fantastic dancer, he could sure jive. Hot weather was important to Doug he loved to travel to Mexico and down south visiting friends. But by far his favorite hobby were his children, their spouses as well as his grandchildren. A dedicated father and grandfather throughout the years he was always there for all of us at any time. We could not have asked for anything more, we were blessed with the best father.

Doug worked for Pembina Dodge for 38 years before retiring in 2004. He was a very loyal company man and he was proud to work there. Doug was very well known in the automotive industry in Winnipeg, he won numerous awards for his exceptional sales work. He had many friends and great customers in the industry and he will be missed by all.

Dougie had the best sense of humor and always stood out in a crowd. His laugh could be heard miles away. He had that gift of making people laugh even at the end of his life. Doug had an abundance of friends everywhere through work and play but his best friend was his loving wife of 48 years, Gerri. Dad missed her so much they were inseparable until her passing; now they are together again. We would like to think that they are dancing together lighting up a room.

Dad and Grandpa you will be forever loved and remembered. Your memory will always live on with us through laughter. We know that you loved us all… as we loved you and will continue too.
