A native of the Pike County area, Douglas was known around town as an honest, hardworking man who could build most anything. He owned Garrett & Sons Construction Company and built several businesses and homes in Troy. He was a master craftsman and enjoyed woodworking of all shapes and sizes. Known to his family as “Paw”, he loved spending time with his family including his brothers and cousins. Paw spent time outdoors hunting and fishing as well as raising cows. He kept a tight schedule and the cows would be right at the feed trough in time for him to come make his rounds every day. Paw was a devoted Christian who loved his church and attended every week. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Loving survivors include his wife, Norma Garrett; children, Cindy Boyd (Kenny), Kim Kurucz, Hubert Garrett (Lori); grandchildren, Jessica Puckett (Nate), Dylan Driggers, Courtney Green (Deven), Bailey Kilpatrick (Zack), Cassidy Garrett, Kati Kurucz, Daisy Garrett; great grandchildren, Tyler Kilpatrick, Jacob Kilpatrick, Sellars Green; and his siblings, Chester Garrett (Aline), Johnny Garrett (Patricia), Abner Garrett, and Betty Garrett. He was preceded in death by his parents, Luther & Lucille Garrett; sister, Evelyn Garrett; and brothers, Melvin Garrett, James Garrett, Brady Garrett, and Bradley Garrett.
