Douglas Allen “Doug” Twyford, age 74, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully, at home on Saturday, May 27, 2023, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Jackson, MO on June 8, 1948, he was a son of the late George and Margaret (Bordwell) Twyford II. Doug graduated from the old William Penn High School in 1967 and the Hussian College – School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. Self-employed, Doug owned and operated Doug Twyford Graphic Design and was the Wooly-Bully of Karaoke Courage for many New Castle Bars. Doug was a member of New Castle Presbyterian Church and a Scout Leader of Troop 34 for many years. Scouting was one of his favorite passions and was proud of not only his five Eagle Scouts but all of the young men he led. Doug was also a Master Mason of St Johns Lodge #2. In his youth, Doug was an avid traveler having visited many places around the globe on his motorcycle and a traveler pass from his pilot father. Doug and his wife, Linda loved going to the beach at their second home in Oak Orchard. He loved his family, friends, and many pets through the years. A singer, guitar player, artist, model builder, collector of stuff, and knower of everything, Doug was a loving husband, brother, friend, and uncle. As Doug sung to us many times … Good night Sweetheart well it’s time to go …
In addition to his parents, Doug was preceded in death by his sister, Susan; and brother, Skip. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda; sister, Christine Fagles (Richard) of Middletown; sister-in-law, Susan Eckbold; nieces and nephews; and his unofficial son, David Strawbridge (Claudine).
