DOUGLAS LESTER BAIR
Douglas Lester Bair 77 passed away Saturday, September 18, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family. He was born in Ogden, Utah to Horace Wendall and Lillian Bair on February 29, 1944.
He graduated from Davis High School, class of 1963 where he enjoyed participating in football, baseball, and track. He married JaNae Burton Bair on March 18, 1966, in the Salt Lake Temple. He raised his family in Syracuse and spent the final year of his life with family in Bear River, so his needs could be met.
Doug was a valiant member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and loved the Lord with all his heart. He served faithfully in many calling throughout his life. He served a work service mission for the church in the southeastern area (Georgia & Kentucky) from 1964-1965. He joined the Utah National Guard following his mission.
He worked for many years as an HVAC installer and then finished his career at R.C. Willey’s where he took early retirement to take care of his beautiful wife battling ALS. We can’t thank him enough for the love and tenderness with which he took care of mom. Dad, you are our HERO!!!
Doug loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, camping, and also loved playing and watching sports his entire life. We are going to miss you being with us on the mountain, in a duck blind, or on the lake with a pole in your hand.
Doug is survived by his sons, Shaun (Jennie) of Clinton, Bryan (Amy) of Clinton, Mike (Shay) of Bear River, Jeremy (Brandy) of Layton, and daughter Angela of Clinton, 13 grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. His brothers, O’Dae Layton, Lyle (Pat) of Smithfield, Ron (Sharon) of Syracuse. Preceded in death by his wife JaNae, daughter Rebecca, mother Lilian, and father Horace Wendell Bair.
