Oliver Harris Doss Sr. passed away Saturday, March 19, 2011, at the home of his daughter, Deborah King. A World War II veteran, he joined the Navy in December of 1941, shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Assigned to the U.S.S. Luna, a liberty ship, he saw action in the South Pacific. Married to the late Lillian Mozelle McTeer Doss, Mr. Doss returned to Brunswick after the war.
A 45 year veteran of the Brunswick Pulp and Paper Company, he often reminded his grandchildren that he was never late, not a single date, to work. He enjoyed traveling and had the opportunity to visit his children in Germany several times, as well as their homes throughout the United States. In his later years, he enjoyed spending time with his children and visiting with his grandchildren and his great grandchildren, including Oliver Harris Doss IV.
He is survived by his son, Oliver Harris Doss Jr. (Lynn) of Blue Ridge; daughters, Alice Doss (Irv) LaFleur of Cumming, Pamela Deborah (Barney) King of Nahunta, Stephanie Michelle Doss of Darien; grandchildren, Oliver Harris Doss (Pam) III and three great-grandchildren of North Augusta, S.C., Sarah Alice Doss of Augusta, Max Albert Doss of Atlanta, Lillian Belle Doss of Athens, Philip Leland Frank Doss of Blue Ridge, Evelyn Florence Doss of Blue Ridge, Thomas Adam LaFleur of Cumming, Michael Doss LaFleur of Cumming, Charles Michael Clair and one son of Los Crusces, N.M., Amanda Lee Lanford (Chuck) and three sons of Brunswick, Alexis Neil Morgan Warner of Nahunta, Justin Lee Woodcock of Brunswick; sister, Alva Doss McKay of Brunswick; a niece and two nephews.
A member of First United Methodist Church in Brunswick, a graveside service with military honors was held Tuesday, March 22, at the Pinecrest Cemetery in Vidalia with the Rev. Glenn Ethridge, senior minister of Oak Grove United Methodist Church in Atlanta, officiating. The Navy Hymn was played on the flute by his granddaughter, Belle Doss. His grandsons served as pallbearers.
