Frederick “Fred” Alexander Doupe passed away, with his family by his side, on Wednesday May 10, 2023, at South Bruce Grey Health Centre – Kincardine, at the age of 73.
Beloved husband of Susan Doupe (née Brooks).
Proud and loving father of Ryan and his partner Jeannie, and Andrew and his wife Geraldine.
Sadly missed by his precious grandchildren, Christopher and Sophia.
Dear brother of Deanna Scott, Don and Jessie Doupe and Betty Helm.
Fondly remembered by in-laws John and Rosalind Brooks, Linda and Ben Beishuizen, extended family and many friends.
Predeceased by his father Ivan Doupe, mother Isabel (née Blue) Stanley, stepfather Norval Stanley, mother-in-law Marjorie Brooks and in-laws Morley Scott, Art Helm, Jim “Wes” and Joan Brooks and Don Brooks.
After college, Fred began his working career at the family business in Millarton and went on to have a 32-year career at Bruce Power as a mechanical maintainer.
Fred enjoyed fast cars, working with his hands, building, repairing, gardening, the outdoors, the beach, exercise, a good joke and, most importantly, time with family. If you ever watched Jeopardy with Fred, you would know he was a wealth of information, that he acquired by continuously learning something new. Around the house, he was a bit of a perfectionis; there was only one way to do the job – and that was the right way.
A funeral service to honour Fred’s life will be held on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home in Kincardine. Funeral celebrant is Ann Maycock.
Cremation, with final resting place at Ripley Cemetery.
If so desired, donations in Fred’s memory to the Kincardine Hospital Foundation, Huntington Society of Canada or a charity of choice, would be appreciated by Fred’s family.
