After a brief unexpected illness, Doug Lott, 67, of Leesville, Texas, moved into that place in God’s house prepared just for him on Monday, March 24, 2014. He went there peacefully with his immediate family by his side. He was born Oct. 26, 1946, to Jean and Odell Lott Jr.
Doug was a proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 1968. He began his career in the commercial insurance industry in 1969 as a fire protection engineer. After 27 years in the corporate life, Doug returned to his Leesville roots with his wife, Connie, to start their new life of ranching, traveling, fishing, hunting, and spending as much time as possible with family and friends.
In recent years, Doug became a dedicated volunteer with organizations including the Leesville Cemetery Association, the Leesville Country Fair, Monthalia Methodist Church, and several others. Most recently, he began volunteering with the WatchDogs Program (Dads Of Great Students) at his grandsons’ elementary school. He was also involved with Centers for Cancer Care and the Gonzales County Appraisal Review Board. He was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
He was preceded in death by his father, Odell Lott Jr.; and his grandparents, Ruth and Linnie Odell Sr. and Clyde and Irene Milam.
Doug is survived by his wife of 42 years, Connie Lott; his daughters, Janice Johnson and husband Tom and Karen Lott; grandsons Tanner and Lane Johnson; mother Jean Lott; brothers Brian Lott and Jerry Lott; sisters Linda Lee, Beverly Goudeau, and Irene Erxleben; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and other family members.
Visitation was held Thursday, March 27, from 5-7 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel of Nixon.
A funeral service was held Friday at 2 p.m. in the Leesville Cemetery Pavilion with the Rev. Paul Smith officiating.
Interment followed in the Leesville Cemetery in Leesville.
Memorial donations may be made to Leesville Cemetery Association or to the Military Warriors Support Foundation.
