Douglas Mordue

Douglas "Big Dog" Mordue, born Aug. 7, 1961, passed away Monday, Jan. 6, 2014.

Doug was known as a big man with a big heart. When he loved, he loved big! He and the love of his life, Yolanda Quevedo Mordue, moved to Virginia in 2010. They made great friends and were living a full life when Douglas was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2013 and was told he had six to eight months to live. Doug decided to live each day fully. He woke up each morning thanking the Lord he was alive to do the Lord's will.

Douglas was a VP with the Aquia Harbour Host Lions and in charge of fundraisers. He loved working with this great organization and amazing men. In 2013 he received the Lions of Virginia Humanitarian Award, along with the president's appreciation plaque. He was incredibly proud of the service this organization provided and that he was part of it.

Douglas was a member of the Stafford County Christian Church, where he did all he could whenever he could. He loved seeing the kids when he helped with the Sunday morning breakfasts, assisting with the SERVE food bank, or helping with the dinners at the homeless shelter.

Douglas was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia Mordue; his father, Jack Mordue; and his beloved grandmother, "Nana" Doris McGinnis.

He is survived by his wife, Yolanda Quevedo Mordue; grandfather "Papa" Edward McGinnis; mother-in-law "Mom" Margaret Quevedo; brothers James Mordue and Craig Escaip; and sisters Susan Fresh, Brandy Mordue and Tamara Mordue; as well as many nieces and nephews he loved dearly.

Doug fought the good fight, but his earthly body gave out on Jan. 6. We know he is now in heaven with his new body dancing and rejoicing with other angels.

A service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25, at Stafford County Christian Church, 1813 Mountain View Road.

The family thanks MWH Hospice; they cared for him as if he were a member of their family. We will forever be grateful for the gentle voice, touch and caring of Patrice who got us all through this very tough time.
