Doug Morissette passed away Jan. 16, 2013 at the age of 57. He was born to the late Rosella and Henry Morissette on May 16, 1955 in Tisdale Sask. Doug received his education in Tisdale and went on to learn and build a business in the concrete finishing trade. Doug was passionate about his life especially his work. He was very hard working and became well known and respected in the concrete business. He worked for many companies throughout western Canada as a foreman and a labourer. Many will remember Doug driving his green ford truck around Saskatoon with his loyal dog Ranger at his side.
Doug was dedicated to his Black Sox Slow Pitch team. He founded and coached the team for many years and will be fondly remembered by his teammates for his positive attitude and jovial nature with many stories to tell.
Doug was a warm and compassionate person who would make friends easily. Doug never looked at the shell of the person but saw the good qualities on the inside. His friends were of all kinds and he would often be seen befriending the elderly or that person sitting alone. Doug spent many hours volunteering at the Friendship Inn. He was often heard for his contagious laugh, telling stories and teasing the staff. Thank you to the Friendship Inn for giving Doug that place to shine.
Doug was crazy in love with his children Madison and Mack. His stories were often filled with their lives. He was very proud of them. Doug was so excited about becoming a grandpa in May. Doug would often say, "The best thing I did in my life was have them."
You will always be with us.
You have touched many lives
with your friendship, laughter and love.
Doug was predeceased by his mother Rosella. He will be lovingly remembered by his children Madison, Mack and their mother Kelly, father Henry, sisters Linda (Dennis), Mary-Ane, nieces nephews and friends.
