Douglas Eugene Dethrow went to be with his Heavenly Father February 12, 2018. Doug was born in Hugoton, Kansas to Gene and Imogene Dethrow on November 22, 1958. Doug loved the farm boy life and his rural upbringing and was often found fishing, hunting and raising pigs. At Rolla High School, where he graduated from in 1977, Doug excelled in basketball and track and set hurdling records. Doug married his long-time love Dianne and they made a home in Norman where they raised a family and ran a successful business together. Doug was a jack of all trades and used his skills and knowledge working in a variety of industries including the oil field, tile business and most recently as a truck driver. When Doug was not working, he could be found with the people who meant the most to him: his friends and family. He enjoyed spending time at the lake and going to OU football games. If you knew Doug, you knew his love for the Sooners. Family described Doug as loving and generous, with his sister saying if he only had three pennies to his name, he'd give you four. Along with generosity and kindness, Doug was known for starting every conversation with a simple "sup man?!" He loved pecan pie and made the best hamburgers. The farm boy also loved music by Pat Benatar, ZZ Top, Bob Segar and Adele. Another love Doug had was his role as a grandfather. Lovingly known as "Poppi," Doug enjoyed teaching his grandchildren how to ride bikes, playing ball and helping them with their livestock.
