Douglas was a kindhearted soul, who would have helped anyone he could. Hated arguments or fights. Said he was a lover not a fighter but would fight over something he passionately believed in or his family. He was all for his family and friends. Enjoyed family get together and cookouts. Loved seeing his family from out of state and even the ones in state that he didn’t get to see often. Loved making people laugh and smile. He attended various churches throughout his life. He couldn’t pick just one. Douglas loved playing his games on his PlayStation and phone (by himself or with friends) and talking on the phone. He loved talking to new people and being on the phone with his girlfriend for long periods of time. He loved to draw and could draw anything that you asked him to. Loved working in gardens and flower gardens. He loved nature and animals but preferred his PlayStation as he got older. Douglas loved baking with his nieces and getting on to them for eating the dough. Even though, when he thought they weren’t looking he ate it too. He loved movies and music, almost every one that he watched, sang or listened to, he could tell you word for word. He liked to start play arguments with his family, just to get them going, then set back and laugh about it. He was so proud to have graduated from East Carter High School. He would often tell his family that had gotten their Ged that his diploma was better. However, he was proud of all of them for getting that GED and furthering their education. To him life was about simple things, family and friends. Laughing at all the clumsiness from everyone including himself and learning from mistakes.
Memorial service for Douglas will be 4:00 p.m. Saturday at Barretts Creek Baptist Church with visitation starting at 3:00 p.m. at church.
