Douglas Whitfield

June 10, 2020

Douglas Whitfield was granted his legs on June 5th, 2020. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Douglas had touched in some small way throughout his short, yet very memorable life.

Douglas was a native of Pensacola and graduated from Tate High School. He went on to become one of the finest residential and commercial painters Pensacola had to offer.

Douglas’ life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His gentle smile, soft touch and warm hugs meant so much joy to our family.

Although he was so frail in his later years, he gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. He loved to work whenever he could and would pester those doing work for him. He could spend hours making those around him laugh with jokes and stories from his past. He truly was the life of the party, when he wasn’t there, something was missing. He’ll be remembered for loving his family, friends, southern heritage, and Alabama football.

Douglas is survived by his loving parents, Douglas Whitfield, Sr. and Shirley Shaw of Pensacola, Fl. ; wife, Sandra Whitfield; sons, Bryan Whitfield and Brett Whitfield; daughters, Whitney Whitfield and Kelly Rogers; grandchildren, Hunter, Hannah and Chandler Rogers, Jaylen Lites, Kylie, Camden and Carter Whitfield of Pensacola Fl.

Funeral services will be held 1PM on Thursday, June 11, 2020 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North with Pastor Mike Mashburn officiating. The family will receive friends at 12 noon prior to services.
