Douglas Storey

March 10, 1949 — September 9, 2023

Preceded in death by his parents, Claude and Freda Storey; his parents-in-law, Herbert and Sylvia Cannon; his grandparents; his sister-in-law Sheila Cannon; and extended family and friends. He is survived by his loving wife of almost 53 years Patty (it's been a Long Road); his son Timothy and his son-in-law, Heath; his two sisters, Phyllis Richardson and Donna Frazier; his sister-in-law Sherry West; his brother- and sister-in-law Herb and Hariett Cannon; his brother-in-law Vernon West; and many nieces and nephews whom he loved like his own children.

Born in Oneida and raised in Rockwood, Doug was a veteran of the U.S. Navy who served during Vietnam. After his discharge, he settled with his young wife in Cleveland. They soon welcomed their son, Timothy, who was the light of his life. Doug retired from Duracell after 35 years. He loved family and making people laugh, road trips in his red truck, fishing, and most of all golf. He enjoyed playing golf with friends and with strangers who soon became friends. He had a zest for life & loved helping others!

Pallbearers will be Blaze Benton, Trace Benton, Brandon Bond, Shelby Bond, Tanner Owensby, Addison West, Jessalee West, & Montgomeree West.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Doug's name could be made to Donate Life America, St. Jude's, or The Humane Society.

A celebration of life service will be held on Thursday, September 14, 2023, at 4:00 pm at South Cleveland Church of God with Pastor Edwin Lipsey, and Pastor Dawn Lipsey officiating. The family will be receiving friends from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm prior to the service.

In celebration of Dougie's life, the family will be wearing purple, his favorite color. They know he would love seeing everyone else join them in adding some bright color during a dark time.

You are invited to share a personal memory of Doug or your condolences with his family at his online memorial located at Companion Funeral Home of Cleveland and the Cody family are honored to assist the family with these arrangements.
