Leslie Douglas “Doug” Sarver, 64, of Clintonville, WV, passed away on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, at home after a courageous struggle with a cancerous brain tumor.
Doug was born on December 1, 1954, to Hampton and Nellie Hall Sarver.
Doug was retired from Greenbrier County, WV, where he served his community for over 20 years as a Home Confinement Officer and previously a process server.
Running was a passion, as well as taking photographs, planting flowers, and playing any musical instrument he laid his hands on. He thoroughly enjoyed feeding the birds, squirrels, deer, turkeys, and the occasional raccoon and skunk. Camo was his favorite color.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, William “Bill” Sarver; and brother-in-law, John Brown.
He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Nancy; his daughters, Amanda Sarver and Amy Morgan; grandchildren, Felicity, Dawson, Keaton, and Keisha; great-grandchildren, Evelyn and Arizona; his sisters, Sally Brown, Sue Anderson (Charles) and Sharnell Hurt (Mike); and brother, Pete Sarver (Pam).
Also surviving are his sister-in-law, Margie Loudermilk; and his special niece and best bud, Kayla Golding, who brought out the kid in him.
He will also be missed by his cats, Big Orange, Kerri, and Siam; and special friends, Brenda Tincher, Laura Legg, Mary Beth O’Dell, Tim and Angela Lester, and Fran McClung.
Family and friends will be received on Saturday, October 26, 2019, from 1-3 p.m. at the Wallace & Wallace Funeral Home in Lewisburg, WV.
In keeping with his wishes, his body will be cremated.
In lieu of flowers, and in honor of his memory, please feed the birds, deer, turkeys, or squirrels in your backyard or in the woods near you, and enjoy watching them like he did.
Don’t think of him as gone, but as being set free.
