Douglas Emerson, devoted husband of Deborah, loving father to Kylie (Jeremy), Katelyn, Ryan, and McKenna, as well as a proud grandpa to Henry. Also survived by his parents Dick and Nancy, brother Greg (Nancy), and sister June. Passed away Saturday June 1st, 2013 at the age of 49. Doug was born on Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. He grew up in Dayton Ohio, and then moved to Frankfurt, Illinois where he attended Lincoln Way High School where he fell in love with his wife. He graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a degree in finance. He worked alongside his dad and brother at Orcutt Financial Services as a Financial Planner. He was a soccer coach to all his children and started Cincinnati TOP Soccer, a soccer league for children with special needs. Doug's love of cycling inspired him to accomplish his dream of riding across America with his son in 2005. He enjoyed organizing family gatherings, high school reunions, and being the spiritual leader of his family. Nothing pleased him more than knowing his family loved The Lord. His greatest passion was his family. He always put his children needs in front of his own and displayed never ending support and pride in their lives. His sense of humor and loving personality made him a joy to be around. A Celebration Ceremony for Doug will be held Thursday June 6th at 11:30am at Epiphany Methodist Church in Loveland, OH. Memorial donations may be made to the McKenna Orcutt Education Fund at any Fifth Third Bank location. Please share your memories and condolences at www.craver-riggs.com
