Jack Douglass Obituary, Death – This week, we were grieved to learn of the demise of Jack Douglass, a former member of LCB with whom he had played approximately ten years ago. Jack was a fantastic euphonium player and a real gentleman in the band. At 11 in the morning on Saturday, May 27th, a funeral ceremony will be place at the Blacktown Salvation Army Citadel, which is located at Kempsey Street in Blacktown.
Mr. Douglass was born in Wadesboro, North Carolina on February 12, 1948. He is the son of Floyd Samuel Douglass, Sr. and Mary Vann Kendall Douglass, who both passed away before him. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Forest Resource Management from Clemson University after completing his high school education at Chesterfield High School. Over the course of more than 20 years, Jack served as a project forester for the South Carolina Forestry Commission. After his time spent working in the forestry industry, he established and ran Douglass 2-Way Radio, which is now known as Communications Technology, LLC.
Mr. Douglass attended the Shiloh United Methodist Church, where he was active in the Men’s Club and the New Hope Sunday school class. In addition, he was a member of the church’s choir. In addition to that, he was a member in good standing of the National Eagle Scout Association and served as an honorary member of the Chesterfield Rescue Squad. Skydiving, taking trips with his family, and making new acquaintances through his hobby of ham radio were all activities that Jack enjoyed. Jack will be warmly remembered as a loving husband, devoted father, silent helper, and friend to many people because he was a simple man who loved his family, the family he worked with, and the faith family he belonged to.
