Douglas Lamond Chamberlain

My incredible Father in law Doug passed away on September 29, 2011. We are so saddened that he is gone and left this life. He was such an amazing man and that has left behind a legacy that is so great.
He has had a long battle with cancer and his body just became to weak. He never gave up on his fight and even til the very end he showed his family that he is a fighter. He continued to teach all of us to love this life up until his final seconds on this earth.
Clint and Ruby and I Were lucky enough to fly home and be with him and Eve and the rest of the family about a week and a half ago. We spent day and night with him and have enjoyed all of the time that we were blessed with.
Doug was the rock of The Chamberlain family. He loved having all of his family gathered together and seeing all the grandchildren play. He was so loving that these family gatherings often included non family member that Doug loved and wanted to feel apart of the family.
Doug loved and fought and I will never forget all the he taught and did for us. We are so sad that Ruby will not grow up knowing her amazing grandfather, but we will teach her about this loving man that was taken from us far too soon.
We love you Doug

He leaves behind a wonderful family that I am lucky to be a part of .
We will continue to love and strengthen one another and remember all the lessons and principles that you taught us all.
