In Memoriam: Douglas Roberts, 1951-2024

Barrie, Ontario — Collision Repair is extending sincere condolences to the entire Roberts family regarding the passing of Douglas Birkley Patrick Roberts.

With a strong passion for vehicles, Douglas opened his first collision repair shop almost 50 years ago at 155 Brock St in Barrie, Ont.

Roberts Collision then joined the Fix Auto network about 20 years ago where Douglas served on the advisory board, was a brand ambassador and became a champion of the network. Twelve years ago, Douglas further opened Roberts Complete Auto Care.

Many will remember Douglas as an avid fan of SATA’s special edition spray guns. He often scored the winning bid for the special editions at the Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF) Toronto events.

Douglas’s strong sense of business contributed to steady growth, and he was always proud to support his employees and their families.

He is held in loving memory by his wife, Barbara, his children, Kim, Shelley and Todd, as well as his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Douglas will be remembered for his warm and open personality, his caring nature, and his ability to be the life of a party.

Friends and family are invited to join in Douglas’s Celebration of Life, which will be held on Sunday, July 14th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Traditions Banquet Hall at Sheba Shrine in Barrie, Ont.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Youth Reach, a local charity that provides grants for children to participate in programs such as dance, music and sports.
