Obituary for Frederick "Fred" Alexander Doupe

Fred 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, and 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 perfectionist, there was only one way to do the job, and that was the right way.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, Kincardine, where the funeral service will be held on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at 2:00 p.m., with Ann Maycock, Funeral Celebrant.

Cremation to follow, with final resting place Ripley Cemetery.

Reception will be held at the Kincardine Pavilion, immediately after the service.

If so desired, donations in Fred’s memory to Kincardine Hospital Foundation, Huntington Society of Canada or charity of choice, would be appreciated by Fred’s family.
