Obituary for Douglas Charles Jackson

Douglas Charles Jackson, 75, of Englewood, died Tuesday, January 29, 2019 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.
He was a son of the late Charles and Florence Evans Jackson.
He was born on October 24, 1943 in Bellmore, New York and graduated from Hofstra University with a degree in mechanical engineering. He worked for TVA as safety engineer and manager of employee concerns for over 25 years.
He was of the Methodist faith.
Doug was the true epitome of the "Renaissance Man". He was devoted to his family and the community as he wanted to make a difference in the world and plant seeds for the next generation. One of his proudest accomplishments was being a Boy Scout Master for Troop 114 as he fostered many young men to become Eagle Scouts and paved their way to fulfilling lives. He was also active in Gem Theatre Players of Etowah as a board member and director and actor in multiple plays. As a volunteer of the McMinn Regional Humane Society (MRHS), he was instrumental in creating the local PetFinders website and conducted numerous animal rescues, and volunteered at the Athens Animal Shelter. Doug was also a committed volunteer for E.G. Fisher Library-Friends of the Library (Board Member), Meals on Wheels, American Youth and Soccer Organization (AYSO), and the Combined Federal Campaign for TVA.
Doug's hobbies included bowling, gardening, hiking, and photography
Doug was a devoted husband to his beloved wife and best friend, (Barb) Barbara Hendricks Jackson for over 47 years. He is also survived by two children, Shane Jackson (Amy) of Knoxville and Courtney Ruckert (Carl IV) of Columbus, Georgia and three beautiful grandchildren: Delaney, Charlie, and Carson Jackson; his sister-in-law Carol Ann Hendricks of Valley Stream, New York and brother-in-law John Hendricks (Pam) of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
A funeral service will be conducted 11:00 am, Saturday, February 2, 2019 in the chapel of Smith Funeral Home with Rev. J.C. Allen officiating. Interment will follow in the Cedar Grove Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 4:00-7:00 pm Friday at the funeral home.
