Doug taught Bible study for eight years, was deacon in his local church, and was involved in the children’s and youth ministries. Doug was also a dedicated Boy Scout leader for over 10 years. For two years, he worked as a Christian counselor at the Bell County jail to help inmates develop a relationship with God and get a fresh start on life. During his many trips to the VA Medical Center in Temple, he visited disabled and bedridden vets to provide comfort and to “give something back”.
Doug is remembered as a devoted Christian, husband, and father who loved his family with all of his heart. He believed the family unit was God’s design for mankind’s procreation and survival. Doug placed his family above all other earthly things and continually strove to be the best husband and father possible. Doug did not wish for others to mourn his passing, but rather they celebrate the beginning of his new life with the Creator in eternity. Doug had a wonderful life and looks forward to seeing his family another day.
A graveside service with military honors will be held at Salado Cemetery in Salado at 10 a.m. on Oct. 18, 2013. Following the service, refreshments and a celebration of Doug’s life will be held at First Baptist Church Salado.
In lieu of flowers, Doug requested donations be made to First Baptist Church Salado, Youth and Children’s Ministries, 210 South Main, Salado, TX 76571. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Broecker Funeral Home.
