KETTLE, Douglas James  - After a long and fulfilling life, Doug passed away peacefully on September 20th, 2018.

Doug will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 67 years, Elizabeth Kettle (nee McClung), his daughters Barb Kettle (George Barber) and Karen Kettle (Greg Moon) and his extended family.

Doug left behind a wide circle of friends and colleagues in Simcoe County and Durham Region.

Doug will be remembered for his love of family, athletic achievements, fishing trips & stories, productive garden, well clipped poodles, and contributions to education.

His career stretched from teaching at Barrie Central and Barrie North Collegiate, to Principal of Pickering High School and on to Superintendent for the Durham District School Board.

Doug’s positive outlook, sense of humour, and generosity touched everyone he met.

A private service will be held at the Hillsdale Presbyterian Church.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Pickering Village United Church Friendship Room, 300 Church St. N., Ajax, on Saturday, September 29 from 1PM to 4PM. Family, friends and colleagues are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: the Hospice Simcoe or the Creation of Hope Education Fund.
