Doug was born October 27, 1977 in Butler, MO to David RaGene and Evelyn Carol (Mouse) Robey. He was baptized on July 2, 1989 at the age of 12. He graduated from Adrian High School in 1996. Doug married his best friend, Kacie Leigh Rice on August 14, 2004 at the First Christian Church in Butler, MO and to this union two children were born: David Zayne and Bryleigh Dawn.

Doug loved the simple things in life: camp fires, mudding, 4-wheeling, hunting, and anything that involved Kacie, Zayne and Bryleigh. Kacie was not only his love but his best friend. She was his favorite person to tease and just live life with. He could tell the best long version of a short story. Doug loved to read westerns and watch John Wayne and The Dukes of Hazard. He was a man of many talents, holding various occupations throughout his life. He enjoyed working for the City of Butler, West Central Ag, Cox Farms, and lastly, yard supervisor for Mears. He gave 110% and expected the same from others. Doug could work on about anything and rig things to work with parts most wouldn’t think of.

Doug was preceded in death by his parents and his grandparents. He is survived by his wife, Kacie, and their two children, Zayne and Bryleigh; three sisters, Lynn Morris and husband, Jason, Debi Harrill and husband, Chad, and Stacy Sample and husband, Steve; parents-in-law, Dale and Debbie Colin, and Terry and Sandy Rice; sister-in-law, Tara Vermillion and her significant other, Johnny Fennewald; brothers-in-law, Justin Colin and wife, Amanda, Casey Colin and wife, Whitney, and Cameron Rice; many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.
