In his free time, he loved watching Gator football, fishing at 'The Shack' in Pine Island, camping, and spending time with family and friends. He was a member of Highlands Church of Christ where he served as a Deacon.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Betty (Russell) Douberly. He is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Cindy, his two sons, Jason and Brandon, his brother Kenneth Douberly of Lakeland, sister Lynn Praay (Tim) of St. Augustine and two grandchildren, Koby and Kinsley.
