Douglas “Doug” Scott Sexton, 69, of Louisville died on October 23, 2021 at Norton Brownsboro Hospital in Louisville, KY. A native of Louisville, he was born April 17, 1952 to the late Samuel and Stella Combs Sexton. He was a graduate of Butler High School. Doug owned a convenience store for 18 years in Bloomington, Illinois. He owned and operated his own pressure washing business in Louisville.
He was a man of faith and a member of the Northeast Christian Church. Doug was a huge British fan. He never missed a game, even in the hospital. He was definitely a die-hard fan! He had a cheerful personality. If he didn’t harass you, he didn’t love you. There wasn’t a child in the family who hadn’t received some sort of groan from Doug. He loved going to the grocery store for his daily deals and always made the holidays special by collecting all the snacks and treats his daughters loved. He left his mark on your life.
Most importantly, Doug was a family man. He adored his 43-year-old wife, Kathy. They married on April 29, 1978 and together raised a beautiful family. His wife, two daughters and six grandchildren were what he cherished most. Family meant everything to him and it was evident in his daily life.
He was predeceased by his parents and a sister, Sandy Higdon.
Those who remain to cherish his memory are his wife, Kathy; two daughters, Charee (Greg) Hopkins, Tiffany (Jack Gordon) Sexton; six grandsons, Dillon Bickley, Noah Scherzinger, Raiden, Landen, Braxden and Kyden Hopkins; a sister, Ricky (Mike) Christy, and a brother, Joe Sexton. He is also survived by several nieces, nephews and extended family.
