Douglas Powell Cloud, who was born in Wichita, Kansas, on February 9, 1941, went to be with our Lord on March 4, 2018, at the age of seventy-seven.
He graduated from high school when he was eighteen and immediately enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He served honorably and remained in the Marine Reserves until 1966.
He attended the American Institute of Banking in Denver and started working as a banker for the Colorado National Bank. While there, he met his beautiful wife Mary after sending poems and chewing gum through the interoffice mail to woo her. He continued his banking career in Dallas with Texas National Bank. He transitioned into real estate, becoming a broker in 1975. He continued a successful career in Houston real estate for forty-five years.
He was loved by many and expressed his love and care for others, exhibiting Christ’s love for those less fortunate. He was a member of Lindale Church since 1975, where he served faithfully in many different capacities over the years. Everyone who spoke with him received an encouraging word and knew that, although he would speak softly, he spoke with wisdom and strength.
He is predeceased by his parents Kenneth Powell Cloud and Verlie Davis Cloud.
He is survived by his wife Mary Brunner Cloud; his children Pete Cloud (wife Brenda), Chris Cloud (wife Kim), and Andrea Cloud Wagner (husband Jason); his siblings Gina Rae Cloud of Bloomfield, California, Marshall Cloud of Tracy, California, and Maurice Cloud of Denver, Colorado; his five grandsons Jacob Cloud (whom he and his wife raised as their own), Anthony Guevara, Joseph Cloud, David Cloud, and Lynox Cloud; his sister-in-law Francey Thorne; and his nephews Paul Thorne III (wife Lavender and their children Paul IV, Morgan, Chelsea, and Darby ) and Ted Thorne (wife Katiann and their children Layth, Rylan, and Jayce); and Brenda’s daughters Brandy Castillo, Rose Galanos, and Andrea Guerrero.
He was cherished and admired by so many!
