July 13, 1961 - February 13, 2021
Douglas A. Hines “Doug”, age 59, of St. Anne passed away peacefully on February 13, 2021 at his parent’s home with his family by his side after a courageous battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Despite the pain, he came out a hero to his family and fought until the very end. Doug was born on July 13, 1961, in Kankakee to Robert and Rose (Styck) Hines. Doug loved his job as a chemical sprayer at the Kankakee Nursery. Doug was extremely proud of his work accomplishments over the years before medically retiring. Doug enjoyed his early retirement with daily trips to Joey’s restaurant, feeding his rabbits and squirrels at home, listening to country music, keeping his grandson stocked up on candy, mowing his grass, and enjoying the company of his family and friends. Doug was a devoted Father, Grandpa, Brother, and Uncle (Uncle Dougy) who will be deeply missed. He will be remembered for his teasing jokes, entertaining stories, unfailing work ethic, love and devotion to his family, and his willingness to come day or night to help anyone in need. Heaven truly gained a special man. Surviving are his son and daughter-in-law, Drew and Kalyn Hines of Bourbonnais; his grandson, Easton; one sister and brother-in-law, Lynne and Dale Papineau of St Anne; one brother, Dave Hines of Bourbonnais; and several nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death are his parents; one brother, Danny Hines; one nephew, DJ Papineau; and his beloved dog, Phoenix. Cremation rights have been accorded. A memorial visitation will be held on Friday, February 19, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. until the 6:00 p.m. memorial service at the Clancy-Gernon-Hertz Funeral Home, Kankakee. Family and friends are welcome to attend. Please wear a face mask and practice social distancing guidelines. Memorials may be made to the family wishes. Arrangements are by Clancy-Gernon-Hertz Funeral Home, Kankakee.
