Doug was one of a kind. He smashed cake in my face at his and Stephanie’s wedding. I hope that makes some people smile. Diego had a beautiful heart and a million dollar smile.
Stephanie & family Gods blessings peace and care be around you. 💕🙏🏻💕✝️

Thinking of you in your time of loss, praying for you and believing the Lord will hold you close.. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
So very sorry for this tremendous loss! We will keep you all in prayer.
Rest In Peace cousin.
Doug, you are gone way, way too soon. Dude, there are so many other crazy ideas we were supposed to work on. So, now, I gotta do them just to prove the impossible can happen more than once in a lifetime. You were a good friend - maybe the best I ever had. Dude, your son wrapped you in the Gadsen flag and gave you a salute. He said it was important to honor you like the President since you were the "commander in chief" of you home. I wish I had been there to salute you, too. Well, I'll miss you and I'll keep my promises to you, and one day I hope we'll see other again. I love you always, my friend.
My deepest sympathies to the Newberry family.

I did not know Doug that well personally. But I was very close friends with his wife. Stephanie and I saw him at events supporting her in her endeavors. He was always very friendly, big smiles, and eager to assist. As Stephanie‘s friend, I also knew how deep their love was for each other and how sad his passing is. I wish healing for all the family.
I Will remember you with a toast every year on Nov 30, a date we both share.
Doug was one of a kind! I learned a lot from him in a short time. I’m grateful our paths crossed while serving at Amelia National. He was the very best & will be missed!
Douglas Edward Newberry
Douglas Edward Newberry, 60, of Yulee, Florida passed away peacefully at home on October 15th 2022, after a short battle with cancer.
Born on November 30, 1961 in Columbus, Ohio to Lawrence Newberry and Glenna Dean Newberry. His early childhood was spent in Columbus, Ohio. He then moved to Cincinnati, Ohio for his middle school and high school years. He married his wife, Stephanie Lynn Mosher Newberry on June 10th 1995 and welcomed his only son, Douglas Edward Newberry II in 1997.
While attending Sycamore High School, Doug began his career in the restaurant business, which became a lifelong passion for him. Over the years he became an award winning chef, a restaurateur, as well as a restaurant consultant, and lived in many cities across the country.
Doug was a Renaissance man, and had many skills he enjoyed aside from the restaurant business. He began writing code in the early days of the internet – and was an accomplished marketing director for several internet investing companies that he started with his friend and business partners.
Doug was passionate about the freedoms of liberty, he worked tirelessly toward keeping the honor of our US Constitution in the forefront for state and local governments and spearheaded the Constitution Day curriculum in our local school district.
When not busy with restaurant work, investing strategies, and fighting for freedoms, Doug enjoyed art and music – but always on his own terms.
Doug was a long time resident of Nassau County and will be dearly missed from his last position at Amelia National Golf and Country Club, where he was incredibly proud of his team and all that they accomplished together.
Douglas Edward Newberry leaves behind his wife of 27 years, Stephanie Newberry, and his son, Douglas E. Newberry II. He also leaves behind
his parents, Larry and Glenna Newberry of Myrtle Beach, NC; as well as his brothers, Larry Newberry, Gary Newberry and sister, Julie Chennette.
A Celebration of Life will be at 3pm on November 6, 2022 at Amelia National Golf and Country Club.
The family invites anyone who knew and loved Doug and his family to attend.
