Douglas Loewinger, age 20, of Florida passed away on Monday December 3, 2018. Douglas was born December 17, 1997 in Coral Springs, FL to his loving parents Craig and Jane Loewinger.

The family has asked that everyone please dress in bright colors and prints that remind you of black clothing, please! They also asked that in lieu of flowers donations be made in Doug's name to:

Southeast Volusia Humane Society and/or

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

Doug lived his life spontaneously, on his own terms, with no regerts, wild, goofy, selfless, generous, passionate, never quitting, random and “fashionable.”

He loved his friends, animals, scuba diving, weightlifting, music, video games, herbs, books, knowledge, The Office, making others laugh and especially his family.

Everything made Doug laugh! Politics, memes, prison cornbread, himself, his friends, laughter, pranks, messing with people, made up words, and songs & phrases were some of this favorites.

Doug loved to learn anything he could; foreign languages, religion, politics, chemistry, cultures, only what he taught himself.

Doug’s Legacy will be remembered as the person who always made others laugh, a good friend, a protective son and brother and accepting of anyone and everyone.

Douglas Mason Loewinger is survived by his parents Craig and Jane and his sister Emily. All those that knew and loved him will dearly miss him.

Eulogy from the Heart

I see your tears in the rain.
I here your voice in the wind.
I feel your touch in the warmth of the sun.
I long for your presence,
But instead I am comforted by your memory.

You are gone from this world,
But not from mine.
A part of you is inside of me.
A part of me has died.
I carry on so your memory will flourish.

Favorite Memory- Doug’s protectiveness. He went to my apartment, found I wasn’t home but instead strangers staying there claiming to be nieces. Doug immediately phoned me alarmed. I asked him why he didn’t believe them.
“Well” he said, because they’re Asian”. I replied, that is because they were adopted from Cambodia. Doug began to chuckle. One of my favorite qualities about Doug was his care for others. I felt it, as I know so many others did too. Doug’s warmth will be so missed as will his very funny sense of humor. Jane, Craig and Emily I hope for you, strength and comfort in the days to come. Much love Hannah

I moved to Daytona from Kentucky about 4 years ago. Doug was one of my first friends.. He made fun of my country accent and always made me laugh. We had a lot of good talks in my car about life and music. We bonded over our love for good music and I always complimented his shirts. I knew that made him happy because it was so “his thing”. He was very wise and extremely openminded with a huge heart. Oh and what a comforting smile. I’ll never forget my buddy.

Although I have fond memories of Emily and Jane from Sweetwater Elementary School, I only had the chance to meet Doug once or twice over the years. I feel like I did get to know Dougie from the stories my son, Dan, shared with me – regardless of whether they were out on the boat or just hanging out, there were always a lot of laughs and they always seemed to have a good time. May the wonderful memories you have of Dougie help to bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time, my prayers are with you all.

We are very saddened and in disbelief of this news. Our thoughts and prayers are with Doug and the the entire Loewinger family.
We remembered Doug as a funny, caring and kind person.
June accidentally locked Christopher in the car outside our house. She was panicking and went over to Tristen for help. Doug was there and he said I will get Chris to unlock the car door. I was not so sure if Doug could get chis to understand how to do it. Doug walked over next to the car door and calmly said “hi Chris”. Chris was about 2 and a half but no more than 3 years old at the time and in his car seat looking out of the car window.

Doug asked Chris to look over to the door knob and motioned to pulled it up. June said to him ‘ I don’t think he understands what you are asking him to do. Doug said “He is a smart kid, He is awesome” He knows what I meant. Doug was right! Chris reached out to the knob and pulled it up! ‘ great job little guy! You are so awesome!’ Doug told Chris.
I was panicking and couldn’t thank Doug enough for helping us and making something so stressful so calm.
Thank you Doug We will always remember and miss you.

Rest In Peace ,

The Barth family.
