Douglas Everett Prosser


Douglas Everett Prosser

Douglas Everett Prosser, 78, of Salisbury and formerly Petitcodiac, passed away Sunday, April 08, 2018 at the Moncton Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born November 2, 1939 in Petitcodiac he was a son of the late Garfield and Lavinia (Wilson) Prosser.

Doug retired in 2001 from the credit office at MacDonald Pontiac GMC where he worked for 25 years. He was previously employed at Eaton's for 19 years. Doug took pride in everything he did, especially his garden which he would share with family and friends. He enjoyed going to the woodlot and cutting his winter wood and also enjoyed working in his woodworking shop. Doug enjoyed everything about being out-doors; four-wheeling, walking, or piling wood.

He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Madeline (Plume) of Salisbury, cherished daughters Shelley Prosser of Moncton, Wendy Prosser of Saint John and Stacey Coates (Faron McMackin) of River Glade, one-grandson, Dylan Coates of Sussex Corner. He is also survived by his sister Doreen Rossiter (Willis) of Alma, and in-laws who were like brothers and sisters to him, many nieces, including special niece Krystal (Plume) Hunt, nephews and extended family members.

A special thank you to Dr. Ismail Sharif, Dr. Erica Brown and Dr. L Nayak for the compassion and care over the years. Also we thank the wonderful nurses and volunteers of the Sheldon H. Rubin Oncology Clinic. We are grateful to the nurses on 4100 and 3600 units for their dedication to Doug. And to Michelle McKnight, a special thank you.

Respecting Doug's wishes there will be no funeral service or visitation. A Graveside Service for family and friends will be held at the Havelock Loyalist Cemetery Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 3 p.m. with a reception to follow at the Havelock Memorial Hall. If desired, memorials to the Friends of the Moncton Hospital's Sheldon Rubin Oncology Centre, or Loyalist Cemetery would be appreciated by the family.


Goodbyes are not forever

Goodbyes are not the end

They simply mean "I'll miss you"

Until we meet again
