James, Douglas Robert

An avid animal lover, appreciator of classic rock and true football fan, Doug passed away peacefully at Sakura House on May 31st after a long battle with liver disease.

Doug served his community as a police officer for over 44 years starting work in the 22nd division of Toronto Police in his early 20s followed by Ingersoll Police, OPP Tillsonburg and ending his career with Parry Sound OPP.

Loving husband to Robyn James (nee Innes) and caring father to Shannon Crinklaw (Rod), Erin Van Brakel (Rodney), Brenna Goode (Chris) and Jessica Moon (Taylor). He is survived by his sister, Virginia Davy. He will be sadly missed as Grandpa to Tara Crinklaw, Sam Crinklaw and Clarke Goode and his faithful companion, Lexie.
A private family celebration of life will take place later.

The family wish to express thanks and appreciation to all Doug’s doctors, specialists, medical team, and the staff at VON Sakura House. If desired, memorial donations can be made to VON Sakura House Woodstock.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences to the James family. Doug was on my platoon in Oxford County O.P.P.(Tillsonburg) prior to being transferred to Parry Sound O.P.P. Doug was a good police officer and his passing has shocked many . He will always be remembered as a good and caring person. He will be missed by many. God Bless and rest in peace. Retired Sgt. Paul B. Woods 10481, Oxford O.P.P.

Lina and I are so sorry to hear about the passing of Jesse. He was a great guy to work with and even better person to know.

I was disheartened to learn of Doug’s passing... he was fantastic and shared his wisdom in a beautiful way. Someone mentioned his passing and it took my breath away, life is fast and the ride is short. Thank you for inviting us into your home for some of the best breakfasts your team could ask for. Rest easy brother.
