Sheridan, Douglas George

Doug Sheridan of Clarksburg was taken far too soon, January 30, 2021 at the age of 56, as a result of a tragic accident.

Doug was born February 14, 1964, in Meaford Ontario and was raised by his parents, Aubrey Sheridan and the late Lois (Carscadden) on the family farm in Loree.

Doug married his highschool sweetheart, his equal, his best friend, his match, Barb (Yaskovitch) of Clarksburg on August 24, 1985.   Doug was a true country boy and, together with his wife Barb, they started their life together on their family farm in Union.  Doug and Barb have two children, Nathan Sheridan (Brittany) of Clarksburg and Whitney Carbert (Evan) of Meaford.   Nathan and Whitney idolized their Dad.

Doug was an exaggeratedly proud and devoted “Papa” to Taylen and Gavin Sheridan and Cleighton and Kayley Carbert.

Doug was the dear brother to Terry Sheridan (Cheryl) of Collingwood and Rob Sheridan (Jennifer) of Clarksburg. He was a treasured brother-in-law, uncle, great uncle, cousin and a surrogate Dad and Friend to all he met.

At a young age Doug had accomplished so much and was the best at everything he did. Doug was active in 4-H, Junior Farmers, athlete of the year, ski teams, quarterback of football, baseball, broomball, hockey, hunting, snowmobiling, motorcycling, ATVing, playing the guitar and member of the local Kinsmen Club.

Machine shop was where he found his passion. Doug went to trade school and became a machinist, working at Teledyne through the week and grooming at Blue Mountain Resort on weekends. Doug later chose to start up his own business “Mill Creek Machine & Welding”, starting in their small garage, it wasn’t long before a much larger shop was built.   Doug’s shop became the one stop shop for all the farming community. If Doug couldn’t do it then it couldn’t be done!   Doug became a pillar of his community and the shop became a social hub for both young and old. Machining and fabricating was Doug’s “thing”.   Doug was so proud to have his son, Nathan, join him at Mill Creek and together they operated a flourishing business.  Truly a self-made entrepreneur.

Doug, also known as “Cone” to his friends loved life and was always on the go. He worked hard, he played harder, all or nothing, it was his way or the highway. He had a way of two-stepping his way into many hearts.

Doug took pride in everything he did. When he put his mind to something there was no stopping him. If you met him, you were only a stranger once. His love for music, campfires, Friday night socials and a good caesar would bring out his infectious laugh which could be heard echoing across the Valley. If you knew him, you understood him. No challenge could defeat him, he was infallible, always a leader, as he could never follow. The king of pranks, Doug was never without a witty comment up his sleeve. If you needed him, he would be the first one there. Doug’s door was always open and everyone was welcome.

Doug was a valued and prominent member of the Rock Lake Hunt Camp and his presence will be deeply missed by the members and guests. He was proud of his accomplishments and always looked forward to every adventure he had there.

Family always came first to Doug, as was evidenced by the day of Doug’s accident, with Doug holding on until his family arrived.   Skilled, brilliant, tough yet gentle when it mattered most.   Doug filled every minute of his 56 years to the fullest and left his family with a hidden oasis where many more memories will be made and where his grandchildren will always be reminded of their Papa. Doug’s legacy will live on through his family and friends.

When the Covid restrictions have lifted and it is safe to gather, the family looks forward to a community celebration in memory of Doug and to share stories and memories of Doug’s life and adventures.

We should all learn from Doug and let his life be an example of how to lead yours, watch the sunrise, have a laugh, never stop learning, enjoy your friends and family, and live life “full throttle”.

Doug was admired by all he met and will be missed by everyone. Doug taught his family everything, except how to live without him. It’s hard to sum up a man who took on the world single handedly.

As Doug was awarded many prestigious awards over the years for his talents and was very much hands on, as your expression of sympathy, donations to the Bluewater District School Board (cheques only please) to assist youth who are perusing a career and /or co-op in the skilled trades, would be appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON   N4L 1B9 to whom arrangements have been entrusted.

“Have a beer for me, don’t waste no tears on me.”

When it is safe to gather, the family looks forward to a community celebration in memory of Doug and to share stories and memories of Doug’s life and adventures.

    The Sheridan family is comfort food for all who know them. If you’re around them you feel like family, you feel home, you feel loved. Thank you for being the family structure I look up to, for welcoming everyone with open arms, and for always being a guaranteed good time. Weather that good time was a 2 min chat in the grocery store, or a weekend camping.
    Doug has made such an imprint in my life. I’ll be hearing his laugh until the end of time. I’m so sorry for the loss of Doug. It’s big, and it’s been impossible to process this far.

    Doug put up with all of my early morning calls, me whining about how I need his help fixing another downed machine. I knew perfectly well that he had more pressing projects, but he would always make the time to fix things so I could get going again. Coming to the shop and shooting the shit with Doug and Red was straight up awesome. I’d arrive with stress and worry on my face, and I’d leave smiling after getting razzed by the them. I consider myself nothing but lucky to have got to know Doug over the past few years. He was an honest and caring guy.
    Barb, Nathan, and Whitney, if you guys need anything at all, natalie and I are right down the road and will help in anyway that we can. From the beginning, your family has treated us with nothing but love and respect. You’re great people.

I need someone smart and strong and kind, someone who will make me laugh and lighten my load, maybe play a few tunes and share some mischief with the angels. A man that knows how to build things, fix things and make things, someone who can make the world a better place. I need a man who has lived a full life and left memories that will never be forgot. I need a good man… it’s Dougie Sheridan I’ll call… RIP Sir Deborah Harbottle

Had the opportunity to have lunch (and a Caesar) one year with him and a few friends before Christmas there was nothing but Joy and laughter at the table, was an extended lunch.

I have some great memories of working with Doug at Blue and enjoying his fellowship at Kinsmen. He was always the first to help and always among the first to celebrate success. Doug also kept you on your toes, either with his informed opinion or with one of his classic pranks. He was a gifted musician and machinist. He could dance up a storm as he was one hell of a 2 stepper. Our thoughts are with you. Rest In Peace Good Man.

    Just received the tragic news of your amazing Husband, Father, Grandfather and cherished friend, Doug. Some of my most memorable memories of Thornbury were the days spent at your picturesque, cherished farmstead. Sitting by the pond, touring thru the barn to visit the horses, and checking out those “tasty” chickens. The breathtaking gardens that were always in glorious blooms. Listening to the “good ole” country classics and trying to out-sing Whitney on the karaoke machine where you could always hear Doug in the background exclaiming that no one can sing “Like his girl, Whitney!” I can only pray that somewhere over that rainbow that there will be brighter days ahead for all of you. May the incredible spirit of an incredible man be cherished in our hearts that were so lucky to have meant such a kind, caring, entertaining man. Thanks for the memories Doug and strength to you all. God Bless

    We just met Doug this summer and wow does his obituary every ring true! We went up for a little horse tour from Greg and Lauren Ardiel’s (who may just carry on part of Doug’s legacy of being the nicest most out going people in the world) and ended up back at Barb and Doug’s cabin and pond for what was supposed to be a drink and bite to eat and then tour on back to where we set up camp. Well Doug came wandering back to see what was going on and before you know it we were all sharing stories and laughs and having a great time! That night the fun continued when the Sheridan’s, and Ardiel’s came down to the camp site for a big potluck, karaoke, and two stepping party. They warmed our hearts we felt like we had been friends for years. We will never forget the warm hospitality, the great stories, and the infectious laugh.
    Thinking about your family with whole hearted condolences, he was a great man!

    My sincere condolences to you and your family Barb. Barb, Doug was the best when we played football together in high school. An eon ago I was in grade 10 and 2nd string to Doug at QB. We were playing Hanover and were ahead 14 – 0 with five minutes left in the game when the coach put me in for Doug (Doug recommended it). The team drove down the field and scored a TD, and on the way back to the bench Doug was the first one to greet me with a bear hug. He was, without a doubt one of the most supportive and helpful teammates I’ve ever had. Doug will never be forgotten.

    By strange coincidence just a few days before Doug left us all so unexpectedly, I was telling my wife Nancy about this gentle giant down the road and to the right, who could pretty well do anything , whether that was starting a tractor that had sat idle for several years, cutting and drilling a piece of angle-iron for free, or plowing our driveway at 6 or 7 in the morning, long before we came to. We’ve learned from this wonderful obituary what a diverse and gifted man Doug was, and we along with the community, grieve his tragic passing.
    May you Barb, Nathan and Whitney, and your families, find the strength to deal with your tragic, and unexpected loss, and may we all remember, for a long time to come, the giant of a man that was Doug Sheridan.

    Barb and family

    Hillary and I were so devastated to hear the tragic news about Doug. When we bought our place down the road from you, Doug was quick to help with planting a field or repairing a piece of equipment. This is a terrible hole in our community

    Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Barb, Nathan Whitney and family, our thoughts and prayers with all. To say Doug was a social person is an understatement. At the very least he was at his best when he is around people and the people he was around were a real benefactors. To be in his presence meant you were going to have fun no matter where you were. I can say without a doubt it was an honour to know him. I always knew if I was going somewhere with Doug that we were going to have the time of our lives and we did so many times. The many trips that we went on together always produced more than one hilarious story, his laugh was infectious. When you were with Doug you were definitely in the moment. There was never a dull time when you were in his present because you never knew what he was going to do. I can honestly say the times I was with Doug were some of the most hilarious times of my life. Thanks Doug! Love you man!

    Dear Barb, Nathan, Whitney & Family
    Thinking of you at this sad time.
    We remember how Doug came over to help as soon as we called.
    The enormous barbeque he always brought to Duncan gatherings was certainly appreciated by all.
    He will be sorely missed in our community.
