Reflections on the life of Willie George Douglas, born on December 2nd , 1944 to the union of Willie and Luberta Douglas in Fort Worth, Texas, he was known to his family as “Willie George.” The family moved to San Francisco, CA in 1945 where Willie grew-up, attended school and finished at Galileo High School. He accepted as his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at an early age at The Friendship Baptist Church under the Pastor-ship of Reverend Evans Sr. His favorite Bible scripture of reading was the 91st chapter of the Psalms.
Willie did a Tour of Duty in the United States Army from September 5, 1963 until August 24,1965 with an honorable discharge. He returned to San Francisco and went to work for the City and County of San Francisco, until he relocated to College Station, Texas, to be near his mother. He worked at Texas A&M until his retirement. Willie devoted his life to aiding others in need through prayer, testimony and support in their struggles of the trials and tribulations of this life. He was blessed with a friendly, outgoing personality and a witty sense of humor that made him a joy to be around.
Willie leaves to cherish his memory a loving devoted companion, Catha Hebert, also known as “Baby” to him, and her children who affectionately call him Pops; two sons, Willie George Douglas Jr. of Louisiana and Hashaun Jamal Douglas of San Francisco, CA; Two daughters, Niasha Hebert of College Station, TX. Clarissa Hebert of Killeen, TX; three granddaughters, Quianna (Anderson) BreAnna (Anthony) and Marquia; two great-grandsons; sister, Dolores Roseman of Daly City, CA, who he called “Baby Sister”; His nephew, William E. Bracy, and family of Oakland, Ca. And a host of grand-nephews, nieces, cousins, friends and his beloved church family, The Community of Christ under the leadership of Pastor Rick.
As we say so long to our dearly beloved one with heavy hearts, we know that as much as we have loved Willie, God loves him more.
REST IN PEACE, WILLIE!
Mr. Willie was such a blessing to the staff at BVCASA. His inspirational papers that he passed out everyday inspired a lot of us in Prevention and made our day just a little brighter. Thank you Mr. Willie for fulfilling GOD’s purpose for your life and showing God’s love to so many people. BVCASA will never be the same without you! Rest in peace!
Willie D. Is how I knew Mr. Willie. I met him years ago at Scott and White. I admired his persistence… he would fall down and always get back up. He was a litter mate to me. A wise one who finally applied his wisdom to himself. I remember his inspirational papers at BVCASA and honestly it did not matter where you ran into Willie he gave you an inspirational paper for the day. I loved seeing Willie at meetings and he would often call me baby girl. He had such a loving presence and reminded me of basics in my life. My heart breaks he has passed but he is with God now and I know he is at peace with God. I learned a lot from Willie that I am able to apply today. I am so privileged to have been able to know Willie and for that I am thankful. My prayers for the family.
Mr Willie was a great individual I will miss him as well as everyone at his home group at New Freedom in Caldwell. He always greeted us with a smile and a wink. He spoke with wisdom and righteousness. Never had a mean thing to say always encouraging. I meet Willie in 1998 and we have been friends and confidants ever since. He will definantly Be missed Love you so much Mr Willie…………… Willie D Heaven Bound. May God bless your family during this time of bereavement .
The first word that comes to mind in thinking about Willie D is “love”. He personified love in his work and personal life. There is no way to measure the impact he had on everyone he met. With Willie, what you see is what you get. A true gentleman always concerned with others. He loved his family and walked this earth with grace and dignity. Rest easy my friend. My prayers go out to the Douglas family.
What a marvelous opportunity we had to share Willie’s wisdom, insights, inspiration and observations – all of them from such a spiritually charged point of view. He was happiest when he shared his life’s regrets and disappointments that we all have so that we could feel God’s radiant love and experience Christ’s powerful healing. His resilience was astounding. It made him an everyday minister of light and truth that made us appreciate the grace we live under. God blessed us with your company, Willie – we will miss you! May he bless you in His kindness and mercy. Rest in Peace Willie.
God Bless you Willie! In 1988 Willie helped me find me and I will be forever grateful! A good honest God fearing man! What a legacy to leave in our hearts ♥️ and minds! Thank you Willie! God bless you your family and loved ones!
I was fortunate to have crossed paths with Willie. He was always upbeat and kind. Always looking out for others. I worked with him many years ago and I, too, received those daily pearls of wisdom. We stayed in touch over the years, occasionally checking up on each other. Our last conversation was only a month ago and he sounded so good. But, of course, Willie never seemed to complain. He always looked on the bright side and he had a way of making me strive to be a better person. Godspeed, my friend. My sincere condolences to his family.
I think God for align me to get to know Mr Willie and he get to know me and thanks for the 13 years that he had worked with me to get to where I am today I wouldn’t have made it without Mr Willie you will truly be missed and never forgotten love always Michael Henderson.. my sponsor for over 13 years a good relationship
There are no words to describe how much his wisdom and gentleness will be missed.
