His Parents David and Margaret Irvine predeceased him. After moving to the United States in the late 1980's Doug found great success in the corporate world but for the past 15 years he served on staff at 12Stone Church as Technical Director. It was there that Doug truly found his calling and passion...investing in people. Doug will be deeply missed by all who knew him. The visitation will be held at Wages and Sons Funeral Home on Tuesday April 29th from 5-8pm. An additional visitation will be held at 12Stone Church (Lawrenceville) Wednesday from 9-10:30am followed by Doug's Celebration of Life Service at 11am.

  1. Remembering the times we had together, times at Provino’s, he always had an Arnold Palmer to drink (I’ll need to try that in his memory), his use of the word “fascinating”, or the “Good call”/”Bad call” signs, his trust in me, his servant attitude, his love for you and the family, his high priority of putting family first, his continued growing in the knowledge of Christ, his pursuit of excellance not perfection, his disappointed look on his face when we disappointed him, his unexpected gifts, his support of missions, his support and kind words to our kids, his huge smile (more priceless without his front teeth).

    I’m going to miss him.

  2. Doug was a great friend, mentor and human being. He always wanted the best for everyone he worked with, which only made him that much of a better person. As with many others, he was taken too soon, but we know he is in a better place waiting to greet the rest of us when it is time to join him.
    His friendship, trust and confidence was something that he easily gave to other people. He has touched so many lives. He will be missed and his devotion can be seen everywhere you look at 12 Stone.

  3. A great loss to so many! Doug was such a strong leader and Godly man. He was the first person to ever put trust in my work on camera, and I will continue to learn and excercise my talent in his name. I know he is watching over all of us, sitting next to Jesus. Thank you Doug for your trust and confidence in me. You will always be a part of me. I can still hear you calling me Danny with that awesome Scottish flare. Rest in peace my friend. Your presence remains with me forever.

  4. Beautifully said… One of the greatest human beings I have ever known! Always put everyone else first before himself…
    Missing him much, but know he is with Jesus and we will meet up again in Heaven!

  5. Truly a great man and humble servant leader. His fingerprints remain in my life and the lives of many. He will be missed.

  6. A wonderful team!
    That’s how he would call us, the tech team at 12Stone. His legacy of trust, excellence, professionalism, and love and service to others will always be my flag as I continue life.
    With his love always there, he trusted me and took care of my family as my second father. His prescence will live within me as I continue striving for only the best, for Christ, for my family and for our tech team at 12Stone as he tought me.
    See you soon my friend.

  7. Doug was a wonderful man of God!…I enjoyed working with him at 12 Stone. I will truly miss his presence and look forward to meeting him again in Heaven!

  8. I only met Doug twice. But enough to know he was a diligent man of God. He loved his wife June extravagantly and his girls. What a privilege it was to know him and I know Heaven is rejoicing that another child is home.

  9. I had the opportunity to work under this man on the Tech team and I truly enjoyed his leadership which was pivotal in our move to the new Central Campus. I learned early on not to ask if that was an Irish accent that I detected. I learned so much under his grace and firm leadership, his ability to spot me across the room and acknowledge my presence, which helped me fit in and find my spot at 12Stone. June, it meant so much to our family when you and Doug visited and brought a meal to us when I had surgery.
    I miss him!

  10. I remember when you took my son under your wing, encouraged him ,saw his potential, gave him confidence, made sure he took advantage of a lot of his talents, and shortly after that who was ever going to think I was going to end up serving with you as well. You became my friend, who was always available to listen and provide wise advise along with courage to keep pushing forward, giving up was not an option, a giving soul, an angel who was put in our paths. Words cannot express how much we will miss you, but I will for sure treasure all the memories, the smiles and hugs. We love you Doug, thank you for everything, it’s been an honor serving with you.

  11. Doug is missed so much already. His kindness, humor, integrity, and fierce love for people. Miss his smile, and his voice, and his wisdom. I have been blessed to have known him and look forward to seeing him again. He will never be forgotten.

  12. I met Doug while playing on the worship team at 12Stone. He would ALWAYS come up to me and say “so glad your here today”! I would always tell him I Loved his accent and he would look at me and say “I Love yours”! It was an Honor to get meet Doug!!

  13. My dear June:
    Thinking and praying for you. May you feel the prayers of SO MANY who are praying for you.
    Lots of love and prayers
    Phyllis

  14. June, may the peace that passes all understanding surround you today! What a loss for us, but such a gain for heaven. You will see and hear him again one day…what a blessed reunion that will be! We enjoyed the times spent together, laughter, joy and kindness. I so appreciated Doug thanking me for loaning my husband to the church. I will miss the hugs on Sunday mornings when he would spot our family sitting and waiting for the service to start. No matter how busy he was, he would always take the time to acknowledge us. People were important to him, as they are to our heavenly Father too…his love and dedication lives on in all those who served under him.

  15. ,Dear June and Family, We wish to extend our condolences for the loss of your husband, We are friends of your mother and father…

  16. Doug was a great leader, mentor and above all an exceptional friend. He was the type who not only shared in your joy, but helped you shoulder your burdens. He was never shy with a hug or a word of appreciation. I learned so much from him about leading professionally and at home. He was passionate about his God, his family, his friends and his calling….oh, and golf. He was gracious in those simple things he did to make you feel like the most important person in the world. I look forward to seeing you again one day in the presence of our savior!
    Love Ya Brother,
    Dan (Danny) Disney

  17. A pillar of leadership and servanthood matched only by his humility and the legacy he has left, Doug Irvine made it count. What an example to follow.

  20. This is a sad day for my Sister and I Irvine as mentioned in the above Obituary, as well as our Mother Anna Irvine, Doug’s wife of 30 years were shocked to learn the Death of our Father today two weeks after his passing. We are truly sorry that we were unable to pay our last respects due to this late notification of our Fathers death. We will remember the times when we grew up in Scotland before relocating to the US where our family was “one”. Our Dad was an avid Rugby Player and we used to watch him every week as the Captain of the North Berwick Rugby Club. Our holidays to Cornwall and to Spain were always active and fun in the way our Dad could only be. If anyone is aware where our Father’s final resting place is or if where his ashes are if cremated we would be greatly appreciative of this information. This will allow us to pay our last respects to the man that gave us life. We will miss you and hope you rest in peace. Love always your Son Paul and Daughter Maggie xo
