'Dougie' Bryan

Douglas “Dougie” Tilmon Bryan (Dougie), born April 15, 1968, in Ann Arbor, Mich., died April 30 from complications of cancer.

The son of Johnny and Beverly (Ake) Bryan, Doug graduated from Stamford High School in 1986. He worked in the food service industry with Black-Eyed Pea Restaurant on Cedar Springs Road in Dallas for more than 20 years. Doug had many talents, such as landscaping, cooking and interior design, and he was known for his sewing. Doug weaved a life full of love and friends and was never a person to be in the light. Instead he opted to help others shine. He would tell you like he saw it, loved with all of his heart, and danced like there was no tomorrow. He was a regular fixture on the dance floor at the Round-Up Saloon as well.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. at the Orient Street Church of Christ in Stamford, Texas, on Wednesday, May 4. A memorial service will follow in Dallas at a later date.

Due to family financial circumstances, in lieu of flowers, donations are requested in memory of Doug Bryan c/o Kinney-Underwood Funeral Home, 210 S. Ferguson, Stamford, TX 79553.
