Obituary of Doug Ezell
Gerald Douglas (Doug) Ezell was born in Poplar Bluff, MO on July 3, 1954, to Thomas E. Ezell and Norma Jean Trotter Ezell. He departed this life on December 6, 2022, in Springfield at the age of 68.
On August 19, 1977, Doug married Glenna Cosby Ezell; she survives. He is also survived by two children, Kyle Douglas Ezell and his wife, Kelsey; their daughters, Kinsley and Hattie; and his daughter, Heather Dawn Ezell, and her wife, Justine Tydings; a brother, Larry David Ezell and his wife, Loretta; along with numerous special nieces and nephews.
Doug was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Thomas Michael and Dennis George; and a very special grandmother, Hattie Ezell.
Doug enjoyed spending time with family and friends and walking the hills and hollers of his beloved farm. He was a lover of all animals and one of his favorite things to do was to sit on the deck of the cabin watching the deer play in the field, while drinking his coffee and listening to Cardinal baseball. Doug was also an organ donor, so he continues to live in the life of others.
