Doug’s family would like to give a special thanks to the staff of CHI St. Vincent ICU and to the staff of Arkansas Hospice for the love and care they provided and also to his church family at Trinity Baptist Church for their continued prayers. The family also wishes to thank Sherry’s work family, Harbor Environmental, for all of their love, support and generosity.

In lieu of flowers the family has asked for donations to be made to the Saline County Humane Society.

A family celebration of life will be held at a later date at Trinity Baptist Church in Benton, Arkansas. Arrangements have been entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas 72076. 501-982-3400
