George Douglas “Doug” Ealy, 80, of Flower Mound, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 8, 2021.

Doug was born on August 2, 1940 in Nacogdoches, Texas to his parent Otto and Lillian Ealy. He grew up and graduated from West Columbia High School. He went on to graduate from North Texas State University with a degree in Music in August, 1962.

Always looking for an adventure, it was love at first site when he met beautiful Tillie and her three little girls at a bowling alley in Houston while they were both there with mutual friends. They married on June 19, 1972 and celebrated 48 years of marriage. After a baby boy was added to the family, they moved to Flower Mound where Doug was a BBQ Man at The Rib in Dallas, Texas. After many years in the restaurant business, Doug retired in 2011.

As his family and friends will tell you, he always had a joke to tell or a poem to recite. Robert W. Service was a favorite poet of Doug's and he would often recite from the poem The Cremation of Sam McGee.

Well, he seemed so low that I couldn't say no; then he says with a sort of moan:

“It's the cursèd cold, and it's got right hold till I'm chilled clean through to the bone.

Yet ‘ tain't being dead—it's my awful dread of the icy grave that pains;

So I want you to swear that, foul or fair, you'll cremate my last remains.”

Doug is survived by his wife, Tillie; son Warren Ealy and wife Lockie Ealy of Liberty Hill, Texas; daughter Julie Ealy of Flower Mound; daughter Tommie Ealy of Dallas; daughter Janis Dohm and husband Steve Dohm of Copper Canyon; Grandchildren: Tristan and Olive Ealy, Bob Dohm and wife Milissa, Missy Friel and husband Trevor; Great Grandchildren: Oliver and Greyson Friel and Richard “RC” Boggs; sister Molly Frances Lovett of Tomball, Texas; brother-in-law Tommy and wife Sachi Williams of Round Rock; sister-in-law Olga Williams, nieces and nephews: Eddy, Bernie and Stacee Williams; Mike, Jamie and Chris Lovett and endless Lewis kin and friends.

Doug was preceded in death by his parents, Otto and Lillian Ealy, mother-in-law Trini Zapata and brother-in-law Damon “Sonny” Williams.

Visitation was held on Saturday, January 9, 2021 at 5pm at the Flower Mound Funeral Home.

My husband, George Snow, was with Doug at the hospital when he was told he had a son. My husband said he was so happy he cried.
I remember Doug as the most loving father to three beautiful little girls and devoted husband to Tillie.
