Douglas Earl Johns, 76, of Sherman, Texas was called home to his Lord on Tuesday, September 14, 2021.
Douglas was born on May 28, 1945 in Dallas, Texas to Lorenzo Mosely and Gay Christine (Munkres) Johns Sr. After graduating from Irving High School, he was inducted in 1965 into the United States Navy, where he served proudly aboard the U.S.S. Taconic until his honorable discharge in 1967. He married the love of his life, Sharon Louise Pugh in Dallas, Texas on October 20, 1973. They moved to Whitesboro in 1978 and built their first home out in West Acres, there they settled in together and built a life along with their daughters. Douglas worked for Weber Aircraft for 33 years in Materials Management. He was an amazing father to two very lucky girls, the cool, fun-loving uncle to his nieces and nephews, as well as a loving and playful grandfather. His joy was in horsing around and playing with his girls, his nieces and nephews and his grandchildren. He loved making people laugh and being the house comedian for his family. While we know Douglas is not here, we also know that he is in Heaven sharing all his corny jokes with those who have gone on before him. He will truly be missed by those that knew and loved him.
He is survived by his wife, Sharon Johns of Sherman; daughter, Hope Johns of Louisville, Co.; daughter, Faith Youmans and husband, Andrew of Brighton, Co.; five grandchildren, sister, Gay Lynn (Lynnie) Parr and husband, Greg of Boulder, Co.; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Douglas was preceded in death by his parents, Lorenzo and Gay Johns and brother, Lorenzo Johns Jr.

Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Meador Funeral Home. The family will host a Celebration of Life Service later this year.
I’ll miss you Douglas earls
Doug was one of my favorite cousins. Our mothers were sisters and our families spent a lot of time together in the 60s. Enjoyed many times when the families would get together, especially weekends at the lake fishing and skiing. He was always so much fun to be around, joking, playing around and just spending time with his younger cousins. Have such wonderful memories of him. He will be missed.
Doug was a wonderful man and neighbor. Him and Ronnie shared many a laugh and good conversation. You are in my prayers Sharon.
I knew Doug from working at A&P foods in Irving in the 60’s and 70’s. Great guy. I believe I only met you once Sharon. God bless.

Doug worked with my dad, John Wilson, at Weber. I worked there, but not directly with him but knew him through my father. Doug was the absolute sweetest man. I loved his smile. Prayers for the family.
