Douglas Burton Obituary

DATELINE:  KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA
Douglas Eugene Burton

On January 2, 2024, Doug met his Savior, Lord Jesus Christ while at Atrium Health Main in Charlotte, NC. A resident of Kings Mountain, Doug was born in Cleveland County, NC, son of the late Robert and Virl Hull Burton. He was a lifelong member of Boyce Memorial ARP Church where he served formerly as an Elder, a Deacon and a Sunday School teacher. Doug was a graduate of Western Carolina University and received a Medical Technology Certificate from Watts Hospital in Durham, NC. Doug retired after 48 years as a Medical Technologist in the chemistry lab of Cleveland Regional Medical Center. He was an avid reader who was faithful to study his bible. Having played the trumpet in high school, Doug began a love of all music early in life. He also enjoyed spending time fishing and being close to his family. Doug possessed a wit that was loved by everyone. Doug was a member, and former Chaplain of the Sons of the Legion. A humble man, he always placed others above himself. Because Jesus loved him, he loved everyone, and everyone loved him. Doug was a wonderful husband, loving father, doting grandfather and friend to many. His presence will surely be missed by all who knew him.
