Fighting the good fight for almost two years, Doug’s cancer had spread to his brain and spine, and he was placed in Hospice care in October 2020. Doug Supernaw passed away peacefully at his home in his beloved Texas on November 13, 2020. He is survived by his third wife, his children and grandchildren. Respect for their privacy is great appreciated.”
