NAISMITH, Douglas Barry Naismith - Obituary | Print |

NAISMITH, Douglas Barry, CA -

Naismith_DouglasIt is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father and grandfather, Barry, at 74 years on Wednesday, April 15, 2015.

Loving husband and best friend of Carol for 50 years. Dear father of Leslie (Paul) Dugas, Mike (Jennifer) Naismith and Craig Naismith. The best grandpa to Eric and Grant Dugas.

Barry was born in Elmvale, Ontario, but spent most of his life in Mississauga raising his family. He built a successful career as a partner in a busy advertising agency, TDF Artists in Toronto, where his dedicated work ethic earned him the respect of many. Barry and Carol's motto of "I'm glad we did it", instead of "I wish we did it" was threaded through a beautiful life spent with beloved family, dear friends, extensive travel and time at the cottage. Barry had so many hobbies and activities that he enjoyed and was rarely idle.

Over the years, he filled his time with sailing, model building, fitness, gardening, listening to country music and enjoying warm Florida winters. He always believed that "this was the year" that the Leafs were going to win the cup and that the Jays would bring home the trophy. His optimism was endless and contagious.

The beautiful furniture that he handcrafted will forever serve as reminders of his creativity and talent. Five years ago, Barry and Carol moved to Corunna to be closer to their grandchildren and it was a joy for him to watch them participate in their activities.

His warm, quiet nature and sense of humour will be forever missed. We are very thankful for the great care and compassion shown to him by the nurses that came to the home (especially Melissa) and to the kind care and time provided by Dr. Maddison and his staff.

At Barry's request, cremation and a private memorial service has taken place.

Arrangements out of Sarnia.

Donations in Barry's name can be made to St. Joseph's Hospice (Sarnia) or the Sarnia & District Humane Society.
