Douglas C. Mayhugh

December 27th, 1961April 17th, 2017

     Douglas Mayhugh was born in Brush, Colorado on December 27, 1961 to parents Richard and Carmelita Mayhugh. He married Gloria Osborn on May 21, 2011.

     His siblings are Brad, Becci, and Dave. Doug has three children from a previous marriage: Kathy, Chuck (Amanda), Butch, and two grandchildren: Emily and Matt. He was preceded in death by his father.

     Doug attended Brush High School in Brush, Colorado, and then Cornerstone Baptist College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was pastor at Boone Baptist Church in Boone, Colorado, and later Associate Pastor at New Testament Church in Brush, Colorado.

     He was always a hard worker. He started at a young age shoveling snow, mowing lawns, and delivering newspapers. Whenever needed to support his family, he would work 2 or 3 jobs. He also served 14 years as an EMT for an ambulance service. Since November of 2004, he has worked for AutoZone in Colorado and Wyoming, most recently as store manager in Lafayette, Colorado.

     Growing up he & his brothers had many escapades and tests for parental patience. One oft-told tale is when they found a nest of garter snakes and decided to make a home for them in their upstairs bathtub. Their mom was not impressed, so they took them to school, sold them and had spending money.

     Doug was a huge Rockies baseball fan and also enjoyed hunting and fishing. He liked to say he played “at” golf. On one occasion, his ball flew into a tree and out flew an eagle. Do you suppose he wrote “eagle” on his scorecard?

     In 2009, he joined First Baptist Church in Lafayette, where he met his future wife. They married in 2011 and have been very involved in serving God and striving to conform to the image of Christ in their life.

     In November of 2011, Doug was diagnosed with colon cancer. He bravely went through surgeries and chemo treatments, leaving himself in the Lord’s hands. The Lord took him home to glory on April 17, 2017. He will be greatly missed by his wife, family, church family, co-workers, and his friends.

Memorials in Doug’s name may be directed to the First Baptist Church of Lafayette, Colorado: 200 W. Cleveland St., Lafayette, CO 80026.


A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, April 21, 2017 at 4:30 PM, at Darrell Howe Mortuary, 1701 W. South Boulder Road in Lafayette, CO. There will be a memorial lunch prior to the service at 2:00 PM at The First Baptist Church, 200 W. Cleveland Street in Lafayette.

I will always have great memories of our younger years when we lived closer together and was able to visit and have fun as kids. Our love and prayers go out to all the family and friends of Doug's. God had His arms opened with a welcome smile and said come on home Doug. We will miss you greatly. We know that you are pain free and enjoying the next journey that Our Lord and Saviour has in store. May God richly bless and give strength to us that still remain.
Doug was an incredible blessing to our church while he worked in Casper. He was always cheerful, encouraging, and real. This genuine servant of Christ strengthened me through his fellowship and friendship. He asked me to pray for him when the doctors told him he didn't have much time left. He specifically asked that I pray that every day he would better conform to the image of Christ so that his life could have a lasting impact for the Lord. I dearly hope that when my time comes to leave this earth, I will continue to have the same ardent desire to conform to the image of Christ. I will not forget Doug and will continue to remember his love for the Lord and his love for his family. I look forward to the day when I see Doug again and when he and I with many others celebrate eternity by worshipping our great Savior.
Sorry for your loss Didn't know him well but he was such a nice person.
