Douglas Abraham Blumenthal entered into eternal rest Aug. 29, 2020 at the age of 52 at his home in Sumter, S.C. Doug was born Feb. 11, 1968 in Dallas to parents Ernest and Carolyn (Dunn) Blumenthal.
He grew up and attended school in Richardson, graduating from Richardson High School in 1986. Doug spent many years learning various martial arts and had a brown belt in Ju-Jitsu. He loved both indoor and outdoor gardening and growing Bonsai Trees and he always designed a Japanese Garden in each home he lived in.
Most recently, Doug had taken up designing and building miniature doll houses. Doug always had a love for animals, from his first dog, Jerome to Shing-Shing, his Rhodesian Ridgeback and finally, Mousie and Nibblett, the chihuahuas, who will miss him dearly.
