  1. Doug was an amazing man, who from day one of meeting him, will forever hold a special place in our hearts! We loved our time together, whether it be listening to old stories or exploring new areas or taking pictures… Doug was one of a kind. Kaeley and Tyler will never forget their adopted Grandpa and their first time fishing with him and Larry! We will miss you very much Doug! Rest in Peace xoxoxoxoxo

    • Hello Kimberly, Kaeley, & Taylor,
      Thank you for the wonderful, heartwarming post. Doug loved you very much and considered you part of his innermost extended family. Thank you for caring for Doug and being his friends.
      Please contact me at dmlemme@bellsouth.net. I have pictures and memorabilia of Doug’s for you.
      Doug was very sick and is in a much better place,

  2. Doug Lemme was a fine man who knew what he was all about and was unapologetic in the living of his life.
    Fiercely independent and inclined toward philosophical conversation, you could always get an honest and folksy answer from Doug.. He had an endearing way of speaking his truth and you always knew where you stood with Doug. He was honest and had good moral character and looked at a person’s heart and inner person, not their outward appearance. He was a good friend to those lucky enough to call him friend. He was a nature lover and loved nothing more than taking his truck on some dirt road, crossing riverbeds, looking for dinosaur bones or adding to his extensive collection of arrowheads. Doug was a man of many talents and interests and I found him fascinating. Doug always called me his sister and he was indeed like a big brother to me when I became friends with his sister, Barbara. He was 5 years older than me but we shared a birthday as well as an enduring friendship even though we sometimes went years without seeing each other. I will miss my dear friend. I send my condolences to the Lemme family, extended family, friends and neighbors in the Vincennes area and beyond and may he rest in peace.

    • Hi Michele,
