Douglas P. Roussy
January 21, 1946 - September 4, 2021 A Poetic Man - who Loved God, Country & Family
I went to visit a friend the other day
He and his family just begun to pray
Lord we give thanks for our many joys
The sunshine, the birds, our dear little girls & boys
The hope of what tomorrow may bring
Maybe a new way about Jesus to sing
And Lord if you give us a little rain
May we go to you with our sorrow and pain
And Lord may we have love, enough to spare
To give others, to do our share
And ﬁnally Lord before we go
Help us all to continue to grow
So that when we come to life’s blessed end
We say we traveled with a truly great friend
A talent Doug discovered was the ability to write poetry, he has hundreds in his collection and many have been published in various local newspapers around the country.
Doug loved the outdoors and especially trout ﬁshing, always having a joke to tell, a poem to recite, willing to help others, always had a smile on his face and very proud of his sons.
Doug passed away on September 4th in Wooster, MA.
Doug was born in Duluth to Phillip and Viola Roussy. Doug attended Lowell Elementary, Washington Jr. High and Central High School.
Doug is preceded in death by his parents and his step son Joedy Newton. Doug is survived by his brother Mark, Colorado Springs, CO., son Jason, Cloquet, MN., and step son Jeremy Newton, Oak Grove MN., and several grandchildren and cousins in the Duluth and Minneapolis area.
