Douglas Wayne King Oct. 14, 1960 - Feb. 21, 2017

Thank you to all those that came and loved on our family during this time. The turnout was amazing. So much so, that we had to post a thank you to this website just to thank everyone! It was so cool seeing all the people that knew our dad. To hear all the stories and reflect on his life was a much needed part in our healing. Your prayers, your cards, your dishes and your gifts were amazing. Thank you again for helping us honor Doug's life!

To honor Doug’s life, there will be a gathering of close friends and family Friday, March 3, 5-8pm at Bruce and Kayla's house: 373 Mayo Rd. Shreveport, LA 71106

This week we lost our father, our friend, our son, and our brother, Douglas Wayne King.

Much like his daily choice of clothing, his life was cut too short for all of us.

He was 56 years old and died of natural causes. He left this side of eternity peacefully in his sleep.

He will be remembered for his energy, his spunk, his love, his peculiarities, his inventiveness, his resourcefulness; he had much wisdom in keeping his house in order, with fixing cars, on Louisiana history, surviving in the woods, repairing just about anything under the sun, duct taping just about anything under the sun, and gutting and skinning any animal under the sun. This is how we will remember his life and his legacy.

We remember the way he loved his kids. The way he loved his wife. The way he loved his closest friends. The way he loved his brothers and sisters. The way he loved his mom and dad. The way he loved his dogs.

We remember how he lived his life.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Sue Wilson King and his oldest sister, Pamela Sue King.

Doug is survived by his eldest son Cameron H. King and his wife Bethany; his youngest son Kyle M. King and his wife Emily. His father, Harold W. King and wife, Sandra; Brother, Bruce W. King and wife Kayla; Brother Kenneth R. King; Sister Dawn M. King. Grandchildren Alexander King, Annabelle King, and Step-Grandchild, Aubrie Barnard.
