Douglas Alan Nett
August 9, 1959 – February 18, 2021
Douglas Alan Nett, age 61, of Plano, Texas was born on August 9th, 1959 in Beaumont, Texas to surviving parents James L. and Shirley J. Nett of Sour Lake, Texas.
Doug loved his family. His grandson, Jeremy Bagwell, was his favorite person, as he often reminded us.
Doug enjoyed school and took part in extracurricular activities such as 4H and band. His love for 4H grew and before long he had many animals in his care. In band, he played the Saxophone and became well-versed with the guitar, too. He attended Hardin Jefferson High School and graduated from Pine Tree High School. After high school he attended Kilgore Junior College for one year and graduated from Texas A&M University in 1983.
Soon after, Doug moved to Dallas where he’d meet his wife, Kathleen. They eventually got married in 1987 at All Saints Catholic Church in Dallas, Texas. They began their married life in Carrollton, Texas where they settled into their first home together. In 1995, they brought home their only child, Hailey.
With family being in Southeast Texas, there were many road trips to the hunting lease, the lake, and beach where fish frys and guitars around a campfire took place regularly. He also had a passion for homebrew and was a member of the Red River Brewers and North Texas Homebrewers Association. He entered many competitions with his brewing and earned several first place ribbons, along with a Stein. Additionally, he was a member of The Knights of Columbus Council 7850 through his church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church.
He is survived by daughter Hailey E. Bagwell (her husband Trevor and their son Jeremy). Doug was cherished by his four nieces and nephews, Courtney Schmitt, Jeff Malone, Daniel Malone, and Sarah Malone.
He was preceded in death by wife Kathleen, grandparents George and Lily Nett and Lee and Odile Thibodeaux.
