Obituary of Douglas Lloyd DuPlessis

Please share a memory of Douglas to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Our beloved Douglas Lloyd DuPlessis, aged 67, of Keswick, New Brunswick went to be with his Saviour on April 20th, 2024. He passed peacefully surrounded by his family at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital.

Douglas was born on March 22, 1957, to the late Lloyd and Juanita (Alward) DuPlessis in Fredericton, NB. 

Douglas was a very special baby brother to David and Brother-In-Law to Ida (Betts) DuPlessis.  He was a much-loved uncle to Jason (Erica), Julie (Hardie) & Jeremy (Sarah).  He was such a proud Papa to Caitlyn, Cameron, Layne & Allison.

Douglas was predeceased by his parents and greatest advocates, Lloyd & Juanita as well as an infant older brother, George Alfred. 

Douglas never let his different abilities slow him down.  He was employed at H.S Gill & Sons Lumber Mill in Nashwaaksis and faithfully served as an employee and shareholder of the DuPlessis Family Dairy Farm for many years.  He was a member of the Keswick Baptist Church where he sang in the choir, greeted people at the door and served as an usher. Douglas loved to sing, strum his old guitar, dance and would think of every reason he could to celebrate. Douglas also attended the Murray F. Humes School in Fredericton, NB.

Over the past few years, Douglas had an amazing team of caregivers whom he loved so much. We are so grateful for you in allowing us to keep him healthy as he lived his best life.
