FRANCIS MARION DOUGLASS January 22, 1932 - October 13, 2023

Mr. Marion Douglass, Age 91, beloved husband of Patricia (Peach) Abbott-Douglass, entered into rest on Friday October 13, 2023 at Doctors Hospital, Augusta, Georgia.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his six children, daughters, Catherine Douglas, Deborah (Debbie) Hoy, Cynthia (Cindy) Owens, Pamela NeSmith (Leslie), Elizabeth (Bess) Mills (Nick), and one son Charles Nadolski (Kim); eight grandchildren; and three great grandchildren; two sisters Evelyn Long and Mary Ann Hay; sister-in-law, Carole Douglas; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and cherished friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents Harold E. and Mary Lee (Bell) Douglas; his adored first wife, Barbara Cushing Douglas; one sister Sara Wells (Osborn); four brothers Harold Douglas Jr (Jenny), Leslie Douglas (Bernice & Sandy), Wallace Douglas (Jean), Tommy Douglas; and two brothers-in-law, Ray Long, and Bill Hay.

Marion was born in Winnsboro, South Carolina. He was the 4th of eight children born to Harold and Mary Lee Douglas. He attended and graduated from Monticello school and then attended Presbyterian College. He left college when he joined the Navy where he was a cartographic specialist (Medic). He started his service at the Charleston S.C. Naval Base and was later stationed in Japan for 21 months during the Korean Conflict. While serving his country as a medic he worked for the US Navy, the US Air Force, and the US Marine Corps.

Marion was a true “People Person”. Everyone loved him not only because he was fun to be with, he was also good, kind and generous. He was an excellent sales person and repped for manufacturing companies such as Burroughs Corporation. He worked for Wadley Office Supply then owned his own office supply company, “Copy Products” where he sold copy machines and office supplies. He owned Days TV where he sold and installed TV’s and satellite dishes. He owned a dry cleaner business, and a furniture business.

He was a true entrepreneur in every sense of the word. In later years, he became interested in real estate where he bought, sold, and rented properties. He was such a fair and loved landlord that many of his tenants and new property owners became much loved friends.

Marion was a Charter Member of the CSRA Shag club where he was an active member for over 35 years. He loved to dance and to listen to music. He was an active member of the JCs, American Legion, Elks Club, and the Sons of the Confederate Veterans (Sergeant Berry Benson Camp 1672). He was a member of New Hope Associated Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) Church and also a member of Grace United Methodist Church, North Augusta.

If you looked up “Nice Person” in the dictionary, you would see Marion’s picture. He was an all around kind man, great father, faithful husband and caring friend. He will be remembered fondly and deeply missed by the many people whose lives he touched.
