Doug was born to loving parents Gerry and Agnes Thibert on May 19, 1966, in the Pincher Creek hospital. He attended and graduated from Livingstone School, where lifelong friendships were formed and sustained.

After attending SAIT in Calgary and earning a journeyman certificate in cabinetmaking, he returned to Lundbreck to open Thibert’s Cabinetry & Fine Furniture. Countless homes in various southern Alberta communities contain the beautiful cabinetry and furniture he created and will be an important part of his legacy.

As a fourth-generation occupant of the rolling acres of farm and grazing land near Lundbreck, Alberta, he loved the land and took pride in adding new plantings or features to the yard. He and Pepper, the last in a string of German shepherds, could often be seen enjoying the warmth of an evening after checking fences or in the winter plowing the driveway.

He was predeceased by his dad, Gerry Thibert, in 2011 and by both his maternal and paternal grandparents, John and Anna Langemann and Romeo and Juliet Thibert.

Left to mourn his passing and to celebrate his life are his beloved mother, Agnes Thibert; his cherished sisters, Joanne Thibert (Wes Kaminski) and Julie Thibert (Jeff Klotz); three nephews, Chris (Olivia Driol), Justin Driol and Matt McKeen (Katie Paul); three nieces, Jenny McKeen (Emi Wekwert), Molly McKeen (Alex McKie) and Lyndsay (Mat Kelly); and two beautiful little grand-nieces, Hayley and Penny Driol. His generous and loving aunties and uncles were a big part of his life, as were numerous cousins and loving friends. He will be fondly remembered and dearly missed.

A celebration of Doug’s life will be held at a time when friends and families can gather without concern for weather or health.

Donations in memory of the late Douglas Thibert may be directed towards your local Humane Society or SPCA.
