C. Douglas (Doug) Clarkson, of Caledon Ontario, passed away at Bethell Hospice, Inglewood, Ontario at the age of 86.


Beloved husband of 63 years to Jackie Clarkson (Linnard). A devoted father to Wendy (Darryl) Speers and Suzanne Clarkson. Grandfather to Kaitlyn (Jordan) Blackburn, Scott (Anita) Speers, Patrick and Philippe Cloutier. Great Grandpa to Brynn, Tessa and Reid.

Predeceased by his mother Myrtle Clarkson and father William Clifford Clarkson. 


Doug, along with his wife Jackie, created a loving and supportive home for their two daughters filled with laughter, love and a lifetime of wonderful memories.  He retired at age 54 from Moore Business Forms and enjoyed many years of retirement with friends, travel, and his passion for old cars.  He spent a lot of his time in Haliburton from the time he was 10 and later through his retirement at his cottage on Hall's Lake. 


The family would like to extend our thanks to the Spectrum Team for the excellent palliative care Doug received and thank you to the loving nurses and caregivers at Bethell House Hospice.
