Mr. Douglas Lee Owens, age 20, of Stuart, Virginia passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 11, 2023, doing what he loved to do best with his brother and his friends. He was born in Eden, North Carolina on October 25, 2002, to Ronnie Lee Owens, Jr., and Jessica Renea Lawson Owens. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Ronnie Owens, Sr., maternal grandfather, C. Douglas Lawson, maternal great-grandparents, Coy and Mabel Rakes, and maternal great-grandparents, Claude and Ruth Lawson. Douglas was selfless, always putting others before himself. He was a complete joy to be around and often brought a smile to everyone’s face. He was respectful, loved fiercely, had a contagious smile, and loved all his family and extended family. Douglas loved anything that had a motor in it. He loved to sing and was just a good “old soul”, never wanting to see anyone hurt or upset. Above all, Douglas had a strong faith in Jesus Christ who now is his heavenly father. Douglas will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. To know him was to love him.
