1934-2017, John Douglas Hines
With deep sadness, we wish to communicate the passing of “Doug” Hines – a long-time resident of the GTA, also known as Papa Smurf, Wee Dougie, Cowboy Doug and Big “D,” in his eighty-fourth year.  In his final moments, at Etobicoke General hospital, Doug experienced the profound joy of having his loving children, grandchildren and great grandchild by his side.   He will be greatly missed by his children Michael Hines, Catherine (Betsy) Hines, and James (Jamie) Hines; grandchildren, Sarah Hines, Alex Hines, Hudson Hines, Christen Latham, Rebecca Laffrade, James Wimpory, & Ashley Hines, and great grandchildren, Wynter Zuch, Charlie Laffrade, Carter Laffrade, and by countless extended relatives and friends.  Doug was pre-deceased by his parents Catherine Hines (nee McClelland) and John Hines, sister Marilyn “Sissy” Ball (the late Karl), and is survived by his sister, Jeanne Fry (Allan) and nephew Jeff. Doug loved his family with his entire being and had tremendous pride in his heart for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  We are eternally grateful that Doug has left us a legacy of love.
Doug enjoyed the outdoors, but only from his horse or a convertible, or by the BBQ. His love of dogs and horses were his passions, along with his great love of sports – auto-racing, hockey and football, in particular. We will all miss those special times with him while he enjoyed and shared his passions & his great love of unique comments & profanity not just while watching sports but reading the paper and especially while driving.
Friends and family are invited to email celebratingdoughines@gmail.com for information regarding a Tapenade and Caesars celebration in toasting Doug on Saturday, November 25th, from 2pm-4pm. These were his favorite weekend specialties. Anyone who knew Doug, was also aware that he had an enormous passion for horses. In lieu of flowers, he would love donations be made in his name to Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue at www.whhrescue.com or please give to Pancreatic Cancer Canada to a personal page at http://donate.pancreaticcancercanada.ca/site/TR/DIY-FundraiseforUs/DIY-FundraiseforUs?px=1150296&pg=personal&fr_id=1296

Harris, George (Duke) Francis of Sarnia

George “Duke” Harris
February 25, 1942 – August 2, 2017

It is with a broken heart we announce, after a courageous battle recovering from heart surgery,
Duke lost his fight. Duke is survived by his wife of 55 years, Eleanor Harris, daughter Kimberly Drury and son-in-law Brad Drury. He was the best ‘Pazzy’ to his pride and joy to his grandchildren Lauren Drury (Brad Hodgson) and Aaron Drury and his special great- grandson Hunter Hodgson. Duke was predeceased by parents George and Elsie Harris, in-laws Lee and Fred Martin, brothers Bill and Bob Maughan and son Bob Harris (March 2005). Having been born in his parent’s home on Alfred Street, Duke was proud of his Point Edward lineage. Duke played Junior Hockey first in Sarnia for the Sarnia Legionnaires where they won the Junior B Championship, then in St. Catherine’s with the Tee Pees winning a Memorial Cup Championship and went on to have a career in the Western Hockey League, American Hockey League and World Hockey Association, highlighted by two championships; the first in Vancouver with the Canucks, and the second in Rochester with the Americans. Following Duke’s retirement from hockey he was fortunate to join Sarnia Cranes, where he spent 25 years as a crane operator. Duke retired in 2005 to become a full time cab-driver for his grandchildren. ‘Pazzy’ never failed to answer the call for a ride, an errand, or whatever Lauren and Aaron needed. Duke loved his vacations in Florida with the “Point Gang” and not too many days went by without a drive to the St. Clair River to make sure the water was flowing in the right direction! Hey Buds, we will miss your quick wit and old storytelling. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at the D. J. Robb Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Tuesday, August 8th at 11:30 am. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 10:00 a.m. until time of service. Memorial donations made to London Health Sciences Centre “Cardiac Surgery Recovery Unit”, Canadian Mental Health Association or Charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

“A special thank-you to the entire staff of Cardiac Care ICU at the University Hospital in London,
especially Dr. Mary Lee Myers. The entire team offered excellent care to Duker and the rest of
our family.”
