Doug was born July 27, 1964, to the late Adam Marcum and Viola Helen Mills Marcum.

Doug had a loving heart for family and friends. In addition to his son, he is survived by grandchildren, Jasper Layne Marcum and Jocelyn Ivy Rose Marcum, and their mother, Brandi Reynolds; sisters, Suetta Holman, Deborah Reed, Joanne Stokely and Brenda Jackson, and many nieces and nephews.
