Doug was born on July 10, 1935, in Wichita Falls, TX, to Eldon and Ida Prescott Chitsey. He will be remembered as "Big Doug" amongst those who knew him best. Douglas married Judy Rodgers on November 25, 1965 in Colorado City. They shared many blessed years together; welcoming "Little Doug" and Amy into the world their family was complete. Doug was a deacon at Calvary Baptist Church for many years all while being a dedicated husband, father, teacher, and coach. He coached in Hermleigh and Colorado City, as well as teaching P.E. at Snyder Elementary. He enjoyed spending his free time tending to his land and cattle; he truly loved his time on the farm.
