Otho J. Douglas passed away on June 8, 2021 at the age of 102 years. Born in 1919 in Hereford, TX to Raleigh and Elvira Douglas. He was at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed and spent the entire war in the south pacific. After WWII, he exited the army and returned to Corpus Christi where his older brother had a Funk airplane dealership at Douglas Field where "Doug" ferried planes for his brother. He met his future wife, Trudy, from Oklahoma where they lived for several years and started their family. Tired of the tornados in OK, they settled in Corpus Christi where Doug went to work in the machine shop at the Army Depot on the Naval Base and retired in 1978. With the nest empty, Doug and Trudy bought property in Flour Bluff outside CC and built their home almost single-handed. They were very active members of St. Peters By The Sea United Methodist Church where Doug would mow the grass and fix anything from the roof to the plumbing and air conditioning. If it had any kind of moving parts, Doug could take it apart and fix it. They moved to San Antonio in 1997 where Trudy continued her battle with Parkinson's Disease. After Trudy passed away in 2000, Doug moved in with daughter Cayce and her husband John Kovacs. They eventually came to live in Comfort, TX where Doug helped them in multiple businesses as yard or maintenance man and was a regular at their distillery, Hill Country Distillers. Doug loved woodworking and being outside mowing grass or tending a garden. He would feed any critter that came into his yard from squirrels to deer. He is survived by his 3 children, Drew Smith (Brad) of Tonkawa, OK, Ramey Douglas (Jo) of Youngsville, NM and Cayce Kovacs (John) of Comfort, TX, 9 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. In lieu of a funeral service, a celebration of life will be held in Comfort, TX. Condolences may be sent to www.grimesfuneralchapels.com under "Send Condolences".
