It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of C. Douglas Erb, 69, of Petitcodiac at his residence on Thursday, February 24, 2022 with his family by his side. Born in Sussex, he was a son of the late Frank and Lily (Freeze) Erb.
Douglas was a proud truck driver for 46 years until his illness forced retirement. He loved the outdoors, time spent at the camp with his friends, but most importantly time with his family, especially his grandchildren and always loved to go to their hockey games.
Survived and sadly missed by his beloved wife of 39 years, Doris (McCully); his children Dianne Erb (Dan); Darren (Vanessa), Dawna Osborne (Erin); cherished grandchildren, Criss, Kirsten, Cole, Braeden, Bailey, Brantley, Dominic; chosen granddaughter, Hailey; sisters, Doris Alexander (David), Christine Erb, Marcia MacCallum (Terry); sister-in-law, Eileen; several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Douglas was predeceased by his sister, Barbara, and brother, Albert.
Family will receive relatives and friends at The Salisbury Funeral Home, 3350 Route 106, Salisbury West on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Due to covid-19 restrictions, masks are mandatory. Interment in Steeves Settlement Cemetery at a later date. If desired, memorials to the IWK or to the Steeves Settlement Cemetery would be appreciated.
