OBITUARY

Douglas Allen Coolidge

December 12, 1974November 28, 2018

On Wednesday, November 28, 2018, Douglas Allen Coolidge passed away suddenly at his home in Tampa, Florida; he was 43 years old.

Doug was born on December 12, 1974 in Tampa. He graduated from Gaither High School in 1993 where he was a member of FFA and the wrestling team (#dogsofwar). In 1998 he married his beloved high-school sweetheart, Jacki; and in 1999 they welcomed their daughter, Mackenzie.

Doug served in the United States Army and earned several awards including Expert Marksmanship. While stationed in Germany, he traveled to neighboring countries and learned to snowboard in the Bavarian Alps. Doug understood how things worked and spent most of his life in the construction industry. He enjoyed golf, video games, fantasy football, gardening and landscaping, his grill, and DIY projects. He was a proud former Band Dad and member of the GHS Cowboy Crew.

Doug was a supportive husband, involved father, and great friend to many. He will forever be remembered by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife of 20 years Jacquelyn Frederick Coolidge; daughter Mackenzie Coolidge; mother Gloria Sawyer Coolidge; sisters Paula Turner Luce, Kathy Turner Nayman, Stephanie Turner Slater, and Anna “Ceci” Coolidge; brother Mark Coolidge; numerous nieces and nephews; and sister-in-law Page Hartman Zelepos. He also leaves behind his canine companion. Many bonds are strong, but few compare to the one between this man, his dog, and their truck.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Doug may be made to Gaither High School Conservatory of Music and Leadership, PO Box 341355, Tampa, FL 33694.
