Doug was born to Charles and Winnie Renfroe on April 10, 1952, in Vicksburg, MS. He enjoyed football and baseball, especially when his team was winning. He loved to make people smile and would go to whatever extreme to accomplish that. He was always ready to lend a helping hand even after he got sick, no matter how bad he felt. He was a loving man who had a profound impact on those he shared his life with and will be deeply missed by all. Doug worked as a logistics coordinator for over 25 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family and friends.
