LAPP, Reverend Douglas Clarke
Peacefully, surrounded by his family, on February 4th, 2005 at the McMaster University Medical Centre, in his 79th year. Born in Ottawa, Douglas found his mission in life as a minister with his beloved United Church of Canada, serving congregations in several churches: Cliffcrest, Scarborough; Chelsea, Québec; Dominion-Chalmers & Britannia, Ottawa; Stoney Creek; Metropolitan, Toronto; and Westdale, Hamilton. After retirement, he continued his faith work with interim ministries in Pilgrim Uniting and Maughan Uniting Churches in Adelaide, Australia. Douglas' deeply held faith and love of teaching also led him to Christian Education and Youth Work roles within the national church, including the Toronto Boys' Work Board and Hamilton Conference C.E. His life of service, leavened with humour and a passionate interest in those around him, touched the lives of many people. Douglas also took a leadership role in the courts of the United Church through presidencies of the Ottawa Presbytery, Toronto Presbytery and Hamilton Conference. Blessed with a scholar's enquiring mind and passionate about theology, he pursued knowledge throughout his working life, achieving a PhD from the University of Ottawa, and an honorary D.D. from Victoria University, Toronto. Douglas shared a constant and abiding love with Ethel Mary UPTON, his high school sweetheart, through 56 years of marriage. He also gave loving inspiration and guidance to his children, grandchildren, extended family and Friends. Douglas is remembered by Ethel; his five children: Laureen (John CURRIE) of Mississauga, Murray (Christine CASTLE) of Hamilton, Peter (Jann SMITH) of Richmond Hill, Robert (Melody PETLOCK) of Sackville, New Brunswick, Valerie (John DIFFER) of Pender Island, British Columbia; and eleven cherished grandchildren: Andrew, Shannon and Alison; Meredith and Cameron; Leslie and Christopher; Miriam and Erin; Hiatt and Kathleen. Predeceased by brothers Robert of Victoria, British Columbia, and Keith of Summerside, Prince Edward Island. The family acknowledges with gratitude the knowledge and compassion of medical and health care personnel during the past few years. Cremation has taken place, and a funeral service will be held on Wednesday, February 9th at 2 p.m. at Melrose United Church, 86 Homewood Avenue at Locke Street, Hamilton. Visitation will be on Tuesday, February 8th 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., also at Melrose United Church.
