Douglas, 70, of Elizabeth, entered eternal rest on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 in Cabrini Grace Home of Alexandria. He was born on October 4, 1942 in Elizabeth to the union of Frank and Thelma Ingalls Gordon. Douglas grew up in Elizabeth and enjoyed playing basketball during his high school years. He was a 1960 graduate of Elizabeth High School. He worked at the Calcasieu Paper Company after high school. He moved between Houma and Lafayette working in the oilfield with OCT, FMC, Inc., and Greene's Pressure Testing and Rentals. He lived in Florida from 1988 - 2006 and was employed with Baldwin-Fairchild as cemetery grounds manager.
Douglas enjoyed fishing, hunting, telling stories and playing practical jokes. Most of all, he enjoyed his grandkids. He also loved to watch many "adopted grandkids" play ball and was known as their #1 fan. He loved to visit with his family and friends and you never knew when he would pop in for a visit. He was loved by so many and will be dearly missed by all.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Thelma Ingalls Gordon; two brothers, Frank Arthur Gordon and Charles Edwin Gordon; and one sister, Evelyn Gordon Larance.
He leaves behind his loving family to cherish his memory, two daughters, Julie (Randy) Gordon Worrell of Venice, Florida, Connie (Dwayne) Gordon Daigle of Lafayette; one son, Ashley Gordon of Nashville, Tennessee; two sisters, Marjorie (Wayne) Gordon Perkins and Genevieve (Kenneth) Gordon Richard all of Elizabeth; grandchildren, Heather Worrell, Tiffany Worrell, Seth Daigle, Nathan Daigle, Hannah Daigle, Jonathan Daigle, and Cade Gordon; and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
