I was sad to see his death, and know that he will be missed.
Shirley and family, sorry for your loss.
From the time I was first old enough to crawl through the hole in the back fence, until I was in the sixth grade or so, I spent countless hours at the Feazel home. Mr. Doug treated me as his own, rather than just Brenda's best friend. I recall weekend trips to Pleasant Hill and numerous family dinners, and Mr. Doug always made sure I felt included. He was larger than life, with a smile that rarely hid, and eyes that twinkled. I will forever remeber the way he looked at Brenda's Mama -- such incredible and obvious love. The kind of obvious love every woman hopes for herself, and her children. I feel blessed to have known him, and to have been a part of his family. My deepest sympathies to Miss Shirley, Brenda and Jimmy, and your families.
Praying for your comfort and loss as you celebrate the life you shared.
I'm so sorry to learn of your loss.
A great man who inspired his family and all those around.
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to James Douglas Feazel our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Doug. And to Doug it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Doug, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, Generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Doug's family and loved ones.

I am saddened to hear of his passing. He and I shared many Saturday mornings visiting at the law firm across the street from where he once lived. Doug was an inspiration to me over the years. My sympathies goes out to his family that he loved so much and I will have them in my prayers.
