Obituary for Thomas John "Tom" Douvres Jr.

Thomas John "Tom"  Douvres Jr.
Thomas John “Tom” Douvres Jr., age 56, received his angel wings while surrounded by his family on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, in Pensacola, Florida.

Tom was born on December 25, 1962, in Elgin, Illinois, to Tom and Carol (Munson) Douvres. Tom married the love of his life, Terri Denise Mincey, on January 24, 1986, in Key Largo, Florida.

After graduating from Plantation Key High School in Tavernier, Florida, he went on to obtain his Master Electrical license and took over his father’s business, Tom and Son’s Electric. Tom’s greatest accomplishment was passing this skill and his father’s business down to his son, J.R. Tom was a big man with big hands and a big heart. A rock for his family, he was a rare and invincible man. He loved hunting and fishing, especially when bringing his kids and grandchildren with him. A provider for his family, he was a loyal husband and beloved friend.

Tom is survived by his wife of 32 years, Terri Mincey Douvres; children, John (Dixie) Douvres, Amy Douvres Detwiler, Leah (James) Herbert, Teresa (Ray) Tyczki; his grandchildren, Tyler, Alysa, Madie, Anthony, Katie, John Thomas and Conner; brother, Jeff (Ruth) Douvres; niece, Sarah (Travis) Little; nephews, Michael (Sonatha) Douvres and Matthew (Mia) Douvres; mother-in-law, Sherrolyn Mincey; father-in-law, Bill (Myra) Mincey.

A Celebration of Tom’s Life will be held in his honor at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 26, 2019, at 1101 Ariola Dr, Pensacola Beach, Florida.

In-lieu of flowers, the family requests a memorial donation may be made in Tom’s name, to The Sacred Heart Foundation (attention to the Cancer Center: Greatest Need at PO Box 2700, Pensacola, FL 32513).

The family extends a special thank you to the staff at the Sacred Heart Cancer Center for the care they provided during his final years.
