Obituary: Douglas Edward Mix


Douglas Edward Mix (68) began his adventures in Heaven on Sept. 18, 2023.

Doug was born Oct. 27, 1954, in Millville, N.J., to the late Rev. Arthur Mix and Carol Mix (nee Dixon). He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Greg Mix. Doug was a force of nature. He lit up every room he entered. He knew a thousand jokes and five ways to fix any problem. 

Doug thoroughly loved his time in Nashville. He excelled at gardening, delighting children at Christmas, and sang beautifully in the FUMC choir. He was involved in the community, enjoyed watching football, and the Nashville High School Marching Band.

Doug worked at Poulan Weedeater. He began his career at Poulan as Safety Supervisor and Metallurgical Engineer.  He retired from the parent company, Electorlux in 2009 as Vice President of Regulatory Affairs. He had a quick wit, an endless supply of jokes, and the ability to connect with everybody.

Doug leaves behind innumerable friends who were impacted by his life. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lois Mix (Stokes); his two daughters, Rae Jackson (Ron) of Kenosha, Wisc., and Erin Downs (Andrew) of Strongsville, Ohio; his siblings, Mike Mix (Jan) of Leavenworth, Kan., Kathy Dulinsky (Dave) of Shorewood, Ill., and Trisha Mix (Greg) of Troy, Mo., and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and loved ones. His memory will be held strong by his four beloved grandchildren Bekah, Eli, Ella, and Lena Downs.

Services will be held on Oct. 7, 2023, at Pleasant Valley Christian Church, 12193 W. Pleasant Valley Rd., Middleburg Heights, OH 44130. There will be a visitation beginning at 10 a.m. with Memorial Service to begin at 11 a.m. The family will host a lunch following services.
