Douglas leaves many loving memories to be cherished by his family and friends. Doug had three passions in life: He loved his family with all his heart, work was fun for him, and he never wanted to miss a UFC fight. He fought and won a battle with Stage 4 diffuse large B-Cell lymphoma in 2018. Doug felt very deeply for people and was very generous, mostly giving behind the scenes. He had big plans for his non-profit he started to help the underprivileged in rural communities. He was an entrepreneur, brilliant businessman and salesman. His greatest strength was that he was an out-of-the-box creative problem solver in most every area of his life. He was a big dreamer...a visionary and always focused on the big picture. He loved to make others laugh and had the ability to walk into a room and put everyone at ease in the first 30 seconds.
He had the true heart of David. He had a deep heartfelt love for God. He was his baby bubba’s hero and his Dad’s biggest fan. To his mom he was always her Warrior. Doug loved his wife with all his heart and soul. He was and always will be her forever summer. He was most proud of his sons and stated his three sons were his greatest accomplishments in his life!
“Where could I go from your Spirit? Where could I run and hide from your face? If I go up to heaven, you’re there! If I go down to the realm of the dead, you’re there too! If I fly with wings into the shining dawn, you’re there! If I fly into the radiant sunset, you’re there waiting! Wherever I go, your hand will guide me; your strength will empower me. It’s impossible to disappear from you or to ask the darkness to hide me, for your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night.”
Psalms 139:7-11 TPT
