G. Douglas Paul

ATLANTA. GA - G. Douglas Paul, 59 went to be a broadcaster at the Lord's station on March 7th in Atlanta, GA. He was the son of Dick and Lorraine Paul and was born in Kingston, PA, then moved to Washington, NC in 1970 where he was raised. He is survived by his wife Sharon and daughter Mittie in Dahlonega, GA, his father Dick, in Washington, NC; 2 brothers, Jay in Stanley, NC and Jeffrey in Buford, GA. and several cousins in California, Maryland and Georgia.

Doug graduated from Washington High School in 1976 where he was President of the Senior Class and was very active in other school events. Following graduation he became active in radio and television working at WITN-TV and in radio in Winston-Salem.

He then moved to Atlanta where he established a Voice Over Company known as Cats Paw Productions and did hundreds of local and national commercials that were heard on all three national radio and TV networks. He later maintained that service on a smaller basis when he and his wife established a 180 acre vineyard known as Three Sister Vineyard near Dahlonega, GA. in North East Georgia. He had a small studio on the premises which he still used to do Voice Over work.

He was a member of Rotary, Masons and Yaarab Shriners Temple in Atlanta.

A memorial is planned at the Vineyard on Tuesday, March 21 at 3:00 p.m.

Just heard the sad news. Tim and I think of you often and how much we miss coming to your winery. Every chance I get I have someone bring me some Fat Boy White wine from Dahlonega.

Our condolences to you Sharon and your daughter. He will be missed.

My wife and I have been visiting 3 Sisters since shortly after they opened, and have always appreciated how welcoming the Pauls were every time. We will miss the big man in the overalls, who made our corner of North Georgia a better place. Peace ...

My husband and I are avid visitors and customers of 3 Sisters Vineyard. We were there when they first opened and I remember going in and seeing this big happy guy in overalls behind the counter happily pouring wine and spreading good cheer. We enjoyed that visit and the many, many, many we have made since then. We felt so welcome. It felt like home.

I am so sorry for your loss. Doug was such a nice person he will surely be missed but his legacy will live on through your family.

We extend our condolences to your during this difficult time.

Doug was a good friend and colleague, and a total joy to be around. I'll never forget all that he did for me and for others in the business. My love goes out to Sharon and Mittie. Doug Paul. Gone too soon. Godspeed my friend.

I loved Doug and his entire family since I was a boy. His mom was my mom's cousin. His dad and my folks are close friends. I wish that I could have made a trip to visit the vineyard he and his beloved wife established.
God Bless you,

My heart goes out to his family. I just heard about this and I'm still in shock. Doug probably knew my voice better than seeing my face; we talked a lot on the phone about wines and wine tours. He was always friendly and kind and he made my job a lot easier. Thank you, Doug, for sharing your light! May you be in peace.
