Kenneth Douglas "Doug" Reid
It is with sad hearts that the family announces the passing of Kenneth Douglas Reid (Doug) in the early morning hours of December 16th in Vernon, BC, after a short illness. Doug was born to the late Kenneth and Louise Reid in Sussex, NB on July 19, 1944.
Doug will be dearly missed by his wife Jennifer. Survived by his siblings James (Jacqui) Reid of Toronto, ON, John Reid of Fredericton, David (Linda) Reid of Fredericton, Andrew (Paula) Reid of Guelph, ON, Anne (Steven) Meade of Fredericton. Doug is also survived by his children Steven, Cindy (Kevin) Wezenbeek of Greenwood, NS, Michael (Donna) Reid of Calgary, AB and Donald Acton (Marlo) of Bulyea, SK and many grandchildren, great–grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.
He had many fond memories of time spent with relatives. He especially enjoyed reconnecting with Aunts’ Bernice Wallace and Vivienne Tabor as well as cousin Annie Buck. Doug spent a lifetime driving tractor trailer in Canada, the USA and in what should have been his retirement years, he drove pilot vehicles leading long, wide and oversized loads, helping to keep the roads safe. In the end, when faced with cancer, as he would have often done driving, he put the "hammer down" and faced it head on.
The celebration of life service will be January 4th, 2020 at 1 pm at the Christ Church Parish Church on Westmorland St, Fredericton NB. There will be a live feed option available for those not able to travel. Interment and gathering to be held later in 2020.
