Doug was born in Rule, Texas, to Henry Lee Crout and Ora Mae (Doss) Crout.

Doug was a World War II Navy veteran, serving in the Pacific on the U.S.S. Saint Paul. He worked as a policeman and a truck driver. Doug was a loving husband, daddy, grandpa and grampy.

You could find them on Saturdays at the Yuba City Farmers Market during the summer months. He was active at the First United Methodist Church of Marysville.
