Special Info  Francis Douglas aka Ahpus, was born on January 9th 1947, to Anita and Griffith Douglas in the village of Boca, St.George. He was the Father of Carolann in the UK, Francine and Chard in the US and Christal in Trinidad. Francis was a man of few words but he had a strong and ambitious personality and never shied away from hard work. After attending Beaulieu RC School, Francis found himself a job as a bus conductor and a short time later, was able to acquire a bus and become one of the favorite bus drivers on the northeast route in St.George for a number of years. That ambitious personality pushed him to migrate to Trinidad & Tobago in the early 1970s in search of a better quality of life. He worked as a construction worker and took the initiative and opportunity to learn and develop skills in carpentry and masonry. In the late 1980s he emigrated from Trinidad to Canada and eventually to the US, where he continued to work in construction and carpentry until he became ill and was eventually hospitalized. Even while hospitalized, during our visits, Francis would sometimes touch the furniture and say I am the one that made this - that always made me smile. His family and long time friends will remember Francis as being easy going and happy. Always fashionably dressed and known for wearing his cap tilted to the side and a kerchief in his back pocket. His slick attire had caught the eyes of quite a few ladies back in the day. He loved a good BBQ. It was one of his favorite things to do while listening to some old-time calypso, especially The Mighty Sparrow, playing in the background. On Tuesday April 9th, Francis left this world peacefully and there is no more pain and suffering for him. He will be deeply missed by his family and his close friends
