The Story

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!

Visitation at Lindale Assembly of God at 503 Reid Street, Houston, Texas at 10:00 A M with services at 11. Private Interment for family will be at Rosewood Cemetery in Humble Texas at 2:00 PM that date.

It was an honor and pleasure to have known Brother Doug all these years. Doug was always there for a word of encouragement and counsel related to serving Christ and our church. We've known him and his precious wife Mary since attending Lindale Church in 1975. He was a true friend and an example of what it is to be a Believer. He demonstrated his love in many ways, especially expressing his kindness to everyone he met. Our heartfelt prayers for Mary and their family as they pass through this moment in time. May our Lord bring you peace and comfort! Brother Doug, we'll see you soon!

We love you!

Mary and I are saddened by the news of Doug's death. He was my friend, one of the first men to befriend me when I started attending Lindale. He was among the kindest men I've ever known. I am so looking forward to reuniting with him in heaven. Like the first day I went to Lindale, I believe he'll be one of the first people to meet me. We will be praying that the Lord will bring comfort to Mary and the family and all those who loved this kind servant of Christ.
We love you guys,
Bill and Mary

We were blessed to know and love Doug, and we thank God for that privilege and honor. He truly was a man of God, a genuine Christian who followed Christ's example all the days of his long life. We will miss him greatly. With our deepest sympathy, love, and prayers for you, his precious family.
