Obituary for George Douglas Reside
George D. “Doug” Reside, 76, of Columbus entered into God’s care on Saturday, February 24, 2018, at his residence with his wife at his side.
Born in Trenton, he resided in the Hopewell/Titusville area most of his life, before moving to Columbus,
Doug, as he was known to his family and friends, worked as a Sales Rep. and Service Manager at Palmer Trout in Trenton before starting D & D Trailers (Deande) in Ewing. He loved the challenge of building and fabricating custom trailers, where he was well-respected. Even though he was not a formal member of the Jacksonville Presbyterian Church, he faithfully helped whenever there was a need. He picked up and put down new stone in the Church’s parking lot; built three pews for the Church, made Vacation Bible School signs and any other signs needed; and built the beautiful Marquee in the front of the Church. Doug also enjoyed time with his friends, Michael Nichols, Bob Wargo (Fuzzy), Jerry Johnson (deceased) and Stanley Gill (deceased) as they rode their motorcycles through state after state in all types of weather – mostly rain. They played, relaxed and of course, toasted a few to the adventures. Doug enjoyed drag racing and that is what inspired him to build trailers. He was in his element when working on cars where he had extensive knowledge, especially about older cars. Doug also helped many organizations who needed a trailer to use for an event or just to haul equipment.
Predeceased by his parents, George William Reside and Mildred (Coleman) Reside. He is survived by his loving wife Ellen (Stout) Reside; two daughters, Wendy and Robin Reside; his grandson Connor Wisnewski; one brother Terry Reside and his wife Carol, Tina and Daniel Stout; his loving dog Shalimar; several nephews and numerous cousins.
