Douglas L. Peregoy

September 23, 1934July 6, 2019

Douglas Peregoy, a longtime resident of Sarasota since 1959, died July 6, 2019, at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. He is survived by the love of his life, Beverly his wife of 65 years, his son Bryan, and preceded in death by his son Mark in October 2017. Survivors also include sister Barbara (Paul), brother Jim (Theresa), sister-in-law Judy, niece Tina, nephew Tony, 6-grandchildren (Misha, Layla, Matthew, Brianne, Hayley, Hannah), and 10-great-grandchildren.

He was a well known, knowledgeable, successful mechanical contractor in Sarasota and southwest Florida, trusted and respected by all he worked with.

Doug was at his happiest spending time with his family and friends, and he will be remembered for his kindness, his loving ways, and his dedication to others. Nothing pleased him more than gathering everyone together, including at the family cabin in Tennessee, where he spent many years surrounded by his loved ones.

His family and friends adored him and knew they could count on him, and he was always there for them. He will be remembered as a kind, loving, wonderful husband, father, grandpa, brother, and friend – and missed by all who knew him.

A visitation will start at 11:00 am until the time of service at 12:00 pm for family and friends on Saturday, July 13, 2019, at Robert Toale & Sons Funeral Home, at Palms Memorial Park, 170 Honore Ave, Sarasota, Fla. Interment at the Park will follow.

I know my mother, Peggy Jean Lasser, always thought of Doug and Barbara more as her brother and sister than first cousins. Doug always had the most wonderful smile, and loving spirit. The brightness you brought to all who knew you will be missed. A part of you will always be with us. Love you very much.

Doug, I love you and will miss you brother!
One of my best memories is when you got the cabin. It was four walls, a roof and a floor. You saw the beauty of what it would be someday and made it happen. Every time we went up there, it was like a bunch ants, crawling around everywhere hammering nails and sawing boards. And finally, POOF, a beautiful cabin appeared!
I believe, it was worth every bath in the lake with a bar of soap and a wash cloth.
I believe, it will be a place where happy family memories will continue to be made for a long time to come!
Your Little Brother,
