DOUGHTY, William James “Jim“ - In loving memory of William James “Jim“ Doughty, of 167 Holmes St. Spring Bay, Ont., who passed away Dec. 26/12 after a long and valiant struggle with his illness. Jim was born in New Liskeard, Ont., son of Whitney and Myrtle (Winters) Doughty, both predeceased. Dearly loved husband of Marilyn (Herbert) Doughty of Spring Bay, Ontario. Loving father of Danny Doughty of Espanola, Laurie (Doughty) Griffin, husband Paul, of Point Roberts WA, and Kerry (Doughty) VanOort of Azilda. Beloved “Gramps“ to seven grandchildren, Steven and Chris Doughty of Sudbury, Lindsay VanOort of Kanata, Katlyne (VanOort) Ghitilescu, husband Bogdan, of Gatineau PQ, Kristen and Brad Griffin of Point Roberts, and Tiffany Griffin of London U.K. Dear brother of Robert and Hilda Doughty of Campbell River, Shirley (Doughty) Wilson of Selkirk MB, and Patsy (Doughty) and Ronald Reed of Sudbury. Dear brother-in- law of Sharon Greer of Innisfil. Sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. Jim worked for CP Telecommunications (now AT&T) for 33 years. He also worked as a Marketing Mgr. for Ratko Pumps and Slingchoker in Sudbury. For much of his life he was an active member of the Pentecostal Church in Sudbury as a Sunday School teacher, choir member, and men's fellowship president. After retirement he moved to Manitoulin Island where he and his wife spent many wonderful years. The past 17 years they spent their winters in Lakeland Florida at the Holiness Camp Ground where they formed many lasting friendships. Jim will always be remembered by his friends and family for his honesty, his wonderful sense of humour and his warm, loving hugs. . .in fact he was known by many as the “Huggy Guy“. He left a legacy of love for his family, and often expressed thankfulness to God for the years of happiness he enjoyed with his friends and family and his one desire is that each of them have a personal relationship with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ so that he could be united with them again some time in the future. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith“ 2 Tim. 4:7.
