On September 30, 2017, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend transitioned into eternal life to be with the Lord.

Douglas was born September 23, 1952 in Columbia, South Carolina. He was one of thirteen children born to the late Booker T. and Mary Addline McFadden.

He was educated in the public schools of Richland County. Upon graduating high school in 1972, he immediately enlisted in the United States Army, serving more than 22 years before retiring in 1994 as a Sergeant First Class.

Douglas, affectionately known as “Doug E. Fresh”, was a loving man who didn’t mind a good conversation. Douglas would talk to you for hours, giving advice and sharing experiences. Douglas was a provider who loved his family.

He leaves to cherish his memories a loving wife, Annette Yvonne McFadden; seven children: Darnell (Amy) Sally, Douglas (Susan) McFadden, Octavia McFadden, Felecia Kelly, Travis McFadden, Dominique (Jamie) Bennett, and Danielle McFadden; three brothers: Frank (Josephine) Hydrick, Booker T. (Irene) McFadden, and Gabriel (Saletha) McFadden; and five sisters: Ann Hart, Sylvia Leysath, Mary (Thomas) Tillman, Alma (Tony) Hartsfield, and Darlene Alston, all of Columbia, South Carolina. He also leaves an aunt, Mary Rummel “Dut” Battle; an uncle, Thomas Williams; twenty-two grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
