Douglas Alan Reese

DOUGLAS ALAN REESE, 67, passed away on Sunday, February 12, 2023 at Allegheny General Hospital after a seven month battle with esophageal cancer. Doug was born on October 20, 1955 in Weirton, WV, the third of five children born to Donald Lee and Eileen Marie Slates Reese. A 1973 graduate of Weir High School, Doug was a gifted handy man who provided for his family by working 47 years as a millwright at Weirton Steel/ ISG/Arcelor Mital. Doug enjoyed golfing with his family and friends at Woodview Golf Course. He also recorded three holes in one at Pleasant Valley Country Club. Even though he was an avid golfer his family came first. He was very supportive of his sons as he was a volunteer coach for soccer and a boy scout troop leader for troop 65 where his sons earned the honor of Eagle Scout. He also enjoyed spending time with his wife Karen as they took walks with their dog, Marley or just went on a drive on our area’s back roads. Most of all, Doug will be remembered as a supportive husband, father, and grandfather who always put the needs of others before his own. Sadly, Doug was preceded in death 36 years ago by his father. He will be remembered with love by his wife of 44 years, Karen Lenhart Reese; his two sons, Donnie (Garrett) Reese, and Tyler (Erica) Reese; his mother, Eileen Reese; his brothers, Donald (Mary Ann), David (Ruth) and Mark (Becky) Reese; his sister, Pam Drizake; his two beloved grandchildren, Savannah and Jack Reese; and several nieces and nephews. Visitation was held Thursday, February 16, 2023 until the time of funeral services, at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, Weirton, with Rev. Kevin Bowers presiding. Memorial contributions may be made in Doug’s memory to The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation
