Robert Douglas "Doug" Gober passed away on October 30, 2022. He was born on March 11, 1937 in Hiram, Georgia to the late Robert Grier and Cleo Sarah Gober. Doug was an United States Navy Veteran and served from 1959 to 1963. After his service, he joined law enforcement and served as Chief of Police for Dallas Police Department. When he wasn't working, Doug could be found doing anything and everything else. He wasn't the type of man to just sit around.

Doug was a honest and caring man who will be so very missed.
