December 18, 1950 - August 22, 2018
On Wednesday, August 22,2018, Douglas Durrett quietly ascended into the arms of our Heavenly Father. Doug will be missed by all of those who knew and loved him. He was a loyal and loving son, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He worked hard and loved harder. Doug enjoyed nothing more than doting on his loved ones, including the family pets. He was a man who could tell a childhood story in a way that had you feeling like you were part of the memory yourself. He lived to laugh. The endless amount of love and laughter that poured out of such an amazing soul will be forever missed by many. Services will be 4:00pm, Saturday September 15, 2018 at Daingerfield Cemetery with Johnny Coleman officiating. Doug was born December 18, 1950 in Houston, Texas to Daryl Wendell and Ethel Jewel (Jones) Durrett. He was the Warehouse Manager of Special Programs at L-3 Technology for over 30 years. He married Joanne on May 3, 1997.
