When you would see him out and about, he would always be dressed head to toe in either Michigan or Smyrna gear.

Doak did not have any children of his own, but he treated his nieces and nephews as if they were his. He was actively involved in their sports and activities, always showing up when he was able to. He was the uncle that was always there to support you, no matter what. He was also the greatest gift giver. He always went above and beyond to make sure everyone felt loved and special.

Doak is survived by his sisters, Sue Sharrock Quick of Normandy, TN, Peggy (Kenny) Thomas of Smyrna, TN, and Nancy Mullis of Lebanon, TN. His nephews, Bryan (Christi) Thomas, Mark Thomas, and Kevin (Olivia) Thomas, all of Smyrna, TN, and Cody (Michelle) Sharrock of McMinnville, TN.
