Doug was born in Bridgeport on December 5, 1966 to Wilbert Donald Stutt and wife Edith Roberta French. At birth he weighed 12 lbs, 14 oz., and at that time was the largest baby ever born in Bridgeport Hospital.
He was baptized on February 12, 1972, and has been a faithful follower of Jesus ever since.
He enjoyed going to church, listening to the sounds of water on the lake, working on vehicles, and being outdoors.
Doug was a two-time survivor of cancer, and survived three auto accidents, including two head-on collisions, and continued to live for many years before God called him Home.
Doug is survived by brother Tony Stutt of Paradise; sister Judy Brinkley of Paradise; and multiple friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Wilbert and Roberta Stutt; and uncle Theron French.
