OBITUARY

Douglas Bernard Wyatt

May 17, 1963December 27, 2020

Douglas Bernard Wyatt, age 57, of Stafford, Va passed away Sunday December 27, 2020 at Georgetown University Hospital.

Doug was warm and caring, always looking for ways to touch people’s lives. Sharing his success and achievements with others brought him the most joy. He was always present as a loyal and supportive father, brother, son and friend.

He loved children, whether they were his own, Shannon’s, family or many lifetime friend’s children. This love for children motivated him to make countless charitable gifts to St. Jude’s and other organizations that supported children. He will be remembered for the soft spot in his heart for all children. Doug wasn’t a dreamer; he was a doer. He built TWI Insulation into a successful business. He worked hard to support and enhance the lives of his family. He was a strong man and lived life big. He is now eternally sitting on a beach, with a big grin sipping on a rum and diet coke. Doug had an unconditional love for his family and friends, they were the most important thing in his life. We will be forever touched by his love and our memories. Never truly gone, always in our hearts.

Born on May 17, 1963 in Alexandria Va. The wonderful son of William Bernard Wyatt and Carolyn Mary “Urbaniak” Wyatt, deceased.

Survived by his father William B Wyatt of Fl, one son Douglas Wyatt of VA, one Daughter Katilynn Wyatt of Ca.

This truly breaks my heart to hear that Doug passed. I first want to send a lot of sympathy and hugs to the family. The hurt will get pushed aside by the beautiful memories and that is where Doug will stay forever in your hearts. I remember I was in third grade when we moved into the house on Forest Glen. The Wyatt’s house on Irene Court backed up to ours and shared a fence. They were the first people we met. It was always the Wyatt Boys and the Nailor Boys. I remember the football fights because everyone loved Dallas and one team had to be the Redskins. The fort on the fence, sometimes the fights, the friendships with all the peeps in Marumsco Village and those that came from other locations to be a part of the crowd. Skipping school and hanging out at Mr. Wyatt’s house at Lake Jackson. Kudos, cause Mr. Wyatt never said anything when he came home and we were all piled up in there. The passing of Mrs. Wyatt (god love her soul). The weddings, children, travels, hangouts and parties. The list goes on and on and there is just not a time that Doug wasn’t part of something. I have to admit that I have been in Florida for some years and didn’t get to see him in a while, but I will never forget that cute little crooked smile that Doug always carried with pride. His family should be proud of all that he built for them. He was one of the hardest working guys I know. He made a name for himself and was very generous in life and love. May he forever be remembered in our hearts! All our sympathy – Shelly & Ben

Our family was so very saddened to hear of the passing of Doug. We have fond memories of shared neighborhood events and can never forget the Wyatt side yard football games. Our boys always enjoyed spending time with Doug and the Wyatt family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wyatt Family at this difficult time.

Mr. Doug was hilarious! I know when Miss Carol used to babysit me and my brother that he grew to love us just as much as his own children. There are so many memories that we all have , just like everyone said “Dorothy lane” ... much love and prayers sent from us .

I’m so saddened by Dougs passing, my heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the family, loved ones and friends. Doug and his brother Greg were a part of my childhood I will never forget, we had some pretty fun times together! One in particular was rope swinging into Lake Jackson. I will never forget Doug and Greg’s faces when they saw me working a booth at Linton Halls family visit day!! Godspeed Doug. 🙏 ❤️

We were so blessed to be your neighbors on Dorothy Lane. Doug always had the biggest smile that crinkled up his eyes. His sense of humor was a kick too, always a jokester. Our sincerest condolences on your untimely loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. From Juan, Laura, Marisa, Isabel & Savanna

We are so sorry for your loss. We have tons of memories of you all growing up on Dorothy Lane. So enjoyed being neighbors with you all there and also at the Lake. Your Dad and Todd have so much common working in the same industry, if there is something we can do to help, please let Todd or me know. We care about all of you. Our prayers include all of you and we are better people from knowing your Dad and yourselves. Hugs to the three of you and may God hold you a little closer through this time. Odette

I had the pleasure of knowing Doug most of my life. He grew up with my mom and dad, I babysat his kids when they were younger. The memories I will cherish most is how much he adored my daughters. Kids brought out a softer side of Doug. He was always nice, but normally more of a jokester. When I brought my girls around he would hold them and say how gorgeous they were, get upset when I called Madison "Madi" for short because he thought Madison was too beautiful to be shortened lol. He was an amazing man and he will be missed tremendously. Fly high Doug and if your kids should ever need me, I promise I'll be there. I love you!

Doug was such an honest and good guy. You always knew how he felt about any particular topic. I have been lucky enough to play enough rounds of golf with Doug and Russell to really appreciate and experience their very funny repartee. It was hard to actually concentrate on golf as I was laughing so hard. Will miss his indomitable spirit and energy. He left this earth way too early. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
