The family of Doug Roadhouse is sad to announce his passing on Friday, Nov. 28, 2014 at the age of 81. He died peacefully at his home in Lethbridge. Doug was born in Calgary on July 14, 1933. He is survived by his daughters Karen Fossati (Al), and Lori Roadhouse Haney (Ted); and his grandchildren Krystina Fossati, and Joelle, Kesinee and Douglas Haney. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 34 years, Irene; his second wife Maxine; his parents Lloyd and Dorothy Roadhouse; his brother Stan and infant sister Margaret; and only six months ago, his youngest daughter Jan. Doug started school in Calgary, but the family moved to Longview during his Gr. 1 year. They relocated to Lethbridge in 1941, where he attended Westminster Public School until Gr. 8, and then LCI for high school. As a young man, Doug was an avid hockey, football and baseball player. He signed with the NY Rangers in 1949-50, and was the property of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950. He continued his love of hockey as part of the Lethbridge Oldtimers Hockey until he was 61. He was one of the original shareholders of Henderson Lake Golf Club, and played key roles on the executive and in starting the Junior Golf program. Doug was a devoted member of the B.P.O.E Lethbridge Elks Lodge, which he joined in 1962, and rose through its ranks to become the District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler, and then served as the President of the Alberta Elks in 1977. He retired from AGT in 1988 where he¹d worked since 1957. It was there that he met the wind beneath his wings, Irene Lough, whom he married in 1958. Doug and Irene shared a passion for travel, among other things, and together they golfed and holidayed their way through Canada and the US. They enjoyed many winters in Maui, and later in Mesa. They also travelled to Burma when Lori and Ted lived there, and saw many other countries in the region. After Irene died, Doug went on an amazing Around-The-World trip, returning to marry Maxine, with whom he spent winters in Yuma and Cuba. Doug also volunteered his time teaching seniors to drive with the AMA, and with the adults with disabilities swim program at the Nicholas Sheran pool. Doug was a true Lethbridge son, sacrificing many opportunities to raise his three loving daughters in this city he loved so well. Near the end, he often commented that he¹d lived a good life, and considered himself among the lucky. Please join Doug¹s family at his Celebration of Life on Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 2pm, at Cornerstone Funeral Home. Rev. Larry Hankinson officiating.
