Douglas Neal Lasater, 66, of Pampa, Texas will no longer bear the heartache of his late wife Becky as they were tied forever on Friday January 7th, 2022. He was born on March 1, 1955 in Farmington, New Mexico to Tuffie and Lenoria Lasater.
In 1969, the family moved from Oregon to Pampa, allowing Doug to attend and graduate from Pampa High School in 1973. He followed in his father’s footsteps and became a welder, not just any welder but according to his daughters the best welder in the world! He and Tuffie were given the opportunity to work together on the Alaskan Pipeline and were proud of their accomplishments. Doug had a knack for making friends with everyone he met and since he traveled for work he had friends across the country and remembered every one of them!
For years, Doug had had his eye on a special young lady, waiting for God’s timing to allow them to maintain a bond for 27 years before she passed away on September 30, 2017. He literally lived for Becky and when they were able to marry, he happily accepted their four children as his own. In many ways he was her salvation early in the relationship; After Becky’s death, the children, grandchildren and his mother were his salvation.
He was always out working on something and he enjoyed doing things for Becky and his mother. He possessed a kind and giving heart and was willing to give anything he had. In the past he had tinkered with both photography and electric trains. His love of dogs, funny and sometimes cheesy personality will be missed by so many who knew and loved him.
He was eagerly greeted in heaven by his beloved wife, Becky Lasater; father, Tuffie Lasater; Son of John Sullins and nephew David Dunn.
The family he left to remember his antics and appreciate his love are his mother, Lenoria “Nonie” Lasater from Pampas; three daughters, Carla Davis and husband Heath of Amarillo, Jennifer Sullins of Pampa, Candi Spencer and husband Mike of Houston; Sister Connie Edwards from Pampa; ten grandchildren, Jesse Spencer, Jacob McCoskey, Kaylee Spencer, Joshua Spencer, Ashlen Shorter, Zoey Sullins, Ethan Shorter, Dax Davis, Zia Martinez, Westlyn Danner; two great-grandchildren, Evelyn Barrera, Daymien Barrera, and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.
Should donations be preferred, the family suggests making a donation to Pampa First Church of the Nazarene, 500 N. West Street, Pampa, TX 79065 in memory of Doug.
Celebration of Life memorial services are scheduled for Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Pampa First Church of the Nazarene, led by Pastor Jimmye Cole. The family have entrusted the cremation of their loved one to Winegeart Funeral Home.
