"Douglas Norman "Dee" Covington, 92, of Goodlettsville, died on Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012.

 

He was born in Sumner County, June 12, 1920, to Charles Lafayette Covington and Alice D. Fields Covington.

 

He married Atlas Palmer in 1941. They had four children together. In addition to his parents and siblings he was preceded in death by wife

of 37 years, Martha Pulley Mickle; son, Douglas Norman Covington; and grandson, Justin Mahler.

 

Covington lived a full, rich, and eventful life. He will be remembered as the cheerful and generous man who enriched th lives of all he

touched.

 

He was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army with the 5th Armored Combat Infantry Division during World War II serving in England, France, and

Germany. Dee was awarded three Bronze Stars for Meeritorius Service and three Purple Hearts for Military Merit. He was a man of many

talents and careers: a farmer, machinist/electrician at DuPont Cellophane, a school bus driver/trainer for 20 years with Metro (retiring in

1982), owner and operator of the Covington Grocery, a radio/TV repair shop, the Old Hickory restaurant, Covington's Sewing Machine

Service and Covington's Machine Quilting in White House and Springfield, a delivery driver for Purolator Courier, a real estate investor, and

a landlord for several properties. He was a craftsman who built a house, furniture, cabinetry, and clocks. He created intricate inlaid wood

and scroll woodwork and repaired clocks into his 90's. He especially enjoyed restoring antique clocks. Dee left many handmade treasures

that friends and family will forever enjoy and appreciate.

 

A 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Mason, Dee was a member of Lodge #700 in White House since 1949 and a Shriner with the Al Menah

Temple in Nashville since 1975. His leisure time was consumed by a passion for watching the Atlanta Braves, working in the carpentry

shop, and feeding the ducks and birds daily who come into his backyard for their meals. Dee lovingly referred to his Longhaired

Dachsshund, "Susie," as his four-legged girlfriend.

 

Martha Pulley Mickle, his wife of 37 years, struggled for years with Alzheimer's. Dee cared for her in their home until her death in 2006. Dee

faced his second lung cancer dianosis with courage and a positive spirit.

 

A celebration of his life was held at the White House Chapel of Austin & Bell Funeral Home on Saturday, Sept. 8 with Rev. Tim Stutler

officiating.

 

Interment followed the service with full Army military honors at the Hermitage Memorial Gardens, 535 Shute Lane, Old Hickory. Family

served as pallbearers.

 

Since Dee was never able to enjoy flowers due to a lifelong allergy, the family requests that no flowers be sent. (Obituary from The

Robertson County Times, September 12, 2012, Springfield, TN.) (Last updated: 24/12/2021 14:26:32)
