Douglas Vincent Bolin

It is with great sadness that the family of Douglas Vincent Bolin announces his passing on Monday, October 2, 2017 at the age of 59 years.

Doug was born in Stettler, Alberta on August 31, 1958 to parents, Olga and Martin Bolin and was the 4th of 6 children. He grew up in the Erskine area and attended school in Erskine and Stettler.

The most positive moments and thoughts of his life were of his children, Daniel born in 1988 and Jessica in 1992. In the early years, he worked long and hard to provide for his family and in his spare time, enjoyed being with his kids and also working with his horses, golfing, hunting and the occasional trip up north to remote fishing areas.

Doug worked at many jobs until 1986 when he and Andy Pochylko started up Doug’s Tank Truck Service. That was his pride and joy and he worked continuously to turn it into the thriving business that it became before it was sold in 2006.

Doug is remembered by; his children Daniel and Jessica; their mother Monica; his siblings Bob (Cathy), Pat (Lori), Louise Matier (Russ Bish), Joyce (Bernie) Strome and their families and his brother-in-law Clayton Lambert; other relatives and many dear friends. He was predeceased by his parents and his sister Darla Lambert.

A private family service was held at Stettler Funeral Home on October 14, 2017, followed by a gathering of family and friends in the Heartland Reception Centre of the Stettler Funeral Home, lunch graciously served by the Stettler United Church Women.
