Obituary for Douglas Arnold Hicks

Douglas Arnold Hicks
March 18, 1925 – June 12, 2019

It is with sadness, yet thanksgiving that we announce after a long and eventful life, Douglas passed peacefully on June 12, 2019.
Those left to remember his quiet love of family is his devoted wife of 70 years Margaret, his daughters Corinne Larsen, Lorraine (Craig) Walton, Heather (John) Titley, Grandsons Leif (Jennefer) Larsen, Aaron Larsen, Reid (Jill) Walton, Neil (Nicole) Walton, Brad (Pam) Titley, Scott (Brooke) Titley and seven Great-grand children.
Doug was predeceased by his brother Vernon Hicks (SK.) and his sister Audrey Warkentin (BC).
Dad was born in Shellbrook, Saskatchewan on March 18, 1925.
On November 9, 1948 in Codette, SK. Dad married the love of his life Margaret Cockriell.
As a young couple they travelled to Winnipeg for their honeymoon and decided Winnipeg was going to be their new home.
Dad joined the Winnipeg Police Department in January, 1949 and never looked back. Dad enjoyed each and every day of his 38 year career. Upon Dad’s retirement in March, 1985 Dad held the position of Inspector of Traffic.
Dad was a member of the Winnipeg Police Revolver Club as a Combat Shooter. The Club travelled on many competitive shoots throughout Canada and the States. Dad was very proud of ALL his trophies.
In 1958 Dad and Mom built the family cottage in South Beach, Gimli and continued enjoying going each and every weekend, during the beach season, to their “piece of heaven”. Mom and Dad made many lifelong friends in South Beach.
Doug and Marg also enjoyed many wonderful winter holidays in Florida.
For the past couple of years Dad and Mom have been residents of Devonshire House II and Dad enjoyed his time there.
The family would like to thank the staff at Seven Oakls Hospital for the care and comfort provide to our father in his final days.
In accordance with Doug’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family gathering will be held.
Should friends so desire, donations may be made in Doug’s memory to the Transcona Memorial United Church – Building Fund 209 Yale Avenue West, Winnipeg, Manitoba R2C 1T9.
Dad until we meet again, We love you!
