Mr. Willie Thomas Douglas, of Greensboro, NC, quietly left this world for eternal rest, on Thursday, March 17, 2022.
Willie Thomas Douglas better known as (Witt) was born on December 25, 1932, to the late J.C. & Adeline Douglas, in Wadesboro, NC.
Willie attended school in Aniston County, NC. He moved to Greensboro in 1957 and married Charlena Tate and to this union they were blessed with two children. Willie moved to Boston Massachusetts in 1969. He was employed at American Electroplate for over 41 years where he later retired. He returned to Greensboro in 2014. He loved to read political books, biographies and watch CNN daily and more than anything he LOVED his grand and great grandchildren. He was a sharp dresser, with his shoes always shined and had a quirky sense of humor. Two of his sayings were “if you asked someone to do something for you more than twice, you’re begging and don’t let anyone run you out of your money.”
Willie is preceded in death by his parents J.C. & Adeline Douglas, his brothers James Nash Douglas, J.C. Douglas, Jr.; his sisters Martha Bailey, Jeretha Douglas, Lilly Mae Cox, Myrtle Lucinia Douglas, Helen Douglas and grandson Corey Davis.
