David H. Doolittle passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 3, 2024 surrounded by loving family. He was born in Mobile, Alabama August 4, 1937. He is preceded in death by his parents Robert E. and Grace Doolittle, and his wife of 62 ½ years, Dr. Norma O. Doolittle.
David was a devoted husband and father. He found total peace on the water. If you know David, you know he is on a boat finding all the best fishing holes and enjoying the serenity that being on the water brings.
David is survived by his two children, David Keith and Pamela Ann, six grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and two brothers, Bob and Clinton Doolittle. He will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
Services will be held at Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home on Saturday, January 13, 2024 at 2 PM. The family will receive friends from 1:30 until service time Saturday at the funeral home. The family requests that any donations be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in David's honor, an organization he cared deeply about.
He never looked for praises
He was never one to boast
He just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most
His dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the times his worries
Went unspoken too
He was there.... a firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold onto
In times of stress and strife
A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of the greatest blessings
The man that we called Dad (Grandpa, Brother, Friend)
