He was a member of Colonial Hills Baptist Church for 39 years where he helped out
with clearing the parking lots in winter. Douglas was a good Christian man. He was a
genuine gentleman! His character, integrity, and honesty was extraordinary and
noticeable to all those he had professional contact with. Everybody that met Douglas
said the same thing; what a nice and kind person he was. His funny, yet dry humor was
a hit with almost anybody he was with. He didn’t light up a room, but he warmed it up
with his presence.
He enjoyed motorcycles, boating, waterskiing, traveling and just having a good time
with family and friends. He loved to listen to country music, 50’s music and gospel
music. He loved his TV dramas and was an avid reader. He enjoyed helping out his
neighbors by keeping the streets plowed in the winter and helping out where needed.

Sunny, Derby, Rayna, Taylor, Lyric, Mia and Luna to name a few. He was a member of
