He is survived by his companion of thirty-six years, Louise Williams; former spouse, Lydia Banks; five children, Sherry Banks (Doug), Nancy McKinney (Johnny), Tina Davis (Steve), Lisa Lanning (Ronnie) and Stacy Banks; stepson, Rusty Morris (Will); one sister, Shirley McCoyle (Bill) and one nephew, Todd McCoyle (Sherri). Also surviving Douglas are four grandchildren, Joshua Rumfelt, Brittany Petro, Brooke McKinney Forbes and Jake McKinney; five great-grandchildren, Breigh Stewart, Brycan Stewart, Aria Petro, Eros Petro, Bayli Jimison and his best friend of sixty-three years, Harry Hess.

 

A funeral service will take place on Sunday, May 8, 2022 at 3:00 p.m. at Nebo First Baptist Church with Reverend Doug Worley officiating. The family will receive friends from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will follow the service at Nebo First Baptist Church Cemetery.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
He was a great man
That loved his family with a beautiful passion.
He was always so good to me
And I loved how he loved Victoria
My heart and prayers are with you during this heartbreaking time.

So sorry, loved Doug, for years while growing up he and Lydia were like a set of second parents to me. I spent a lot of time at their house growing up with Sherry! I am so sorry family, if there is anything that I can do besides pray, please let me know!
