Douglas Alfred Kane
Douglas Alfred Kane, 84, of Forest Dale Home and formerly of Alma passed away peacefully on September 28th, 2022 at the Nursing Home.
Douglas was born in Alma West, NB on February 24th, 1938 the son of the late Hamilton and Georgia (Dixon) Kane.
Doug lived his whole life in the Alma area and loved to be surrounded by the beautiful scenery. He was raised in a large family with several siblings and they lived off the land and were very close. He worked at the Potato Farm in Herrings Cove for a time then went on to own a Lobster Boat, fishing from Alma until his retirement. He was an avid hunter, having got his share of big game. He also enjoyed time spent fishing, just being outdoors in the woods was his happy place. When Doug met Pat he was smitten first thing and then started their own family. He was so happy to have his daughter and son, they meant the world to him. His quiet and calm demeanor was a great asset to have as a father. Then his grandson, Brett, came along and he treasured the special connection they shared. Doug was always ready to help in any way he could and always with a smile. His great-grandchildren will be told many stories about their great-grandfather and hopefully his love of family and nature will be passed on to them. His greatest pleasure in life was spending time with his family. "FAMILY IS EVERYTHING"
When his health was declining he felt blessed to have his family help look after all his needs and was grateful for all the effort put into him staying at his beloved home. The family would like to say thank you to the Forest Dale Home for all their care even if it was for a short time, it helped to know he was being well cared for when we couldn't be there, even though we visited him daily. The care and support given will never be forgotten.
He will be deeply missed by his wife and best friend, Pat Kane; his daughter, Pam Cooper (Darryl) and son Mark Kane all of Alma; his grandson, Brett Cooper (Shawna) of Alma; his treasured great grandchildren, Ty and Lexie; sisters, Edna Sinclair of Halifax, Joan Tingley of Riverside-Albert, Donna Pittman (Allan) of Alma, Paula Landsdale (Rick) of Alma and Darlene Nelson of Moncton; brothers, Wayne Kane (Gloria) of Alma, Russell Kane (Brenda) of Brooks, AB and Clayton Kane (Darlene) of Alma. He will also be missed by several nieces, nephews, all his extended family and friends.
