Doug Cantrell was born February 13, 1949 in McMinnville, TN, the son of the late Lilburn Clinton Cantrell and Clora Simons Cantrell. Doug was self employed as a Technical Management Consultant. His daughters shared that he was the most dedicated man to his work. He loved playing music, and could play most any stringed instrument.

Doug will also be deeply missed by his partners and colleagues at M.G. Taylor. In addition to his parents, Doug was preceded in death by one brother, James Kenneth Cantrell. Doug’s family will celebrate his life with a memorial service on May 19 at 4:00 P.M. at Vanderbilt Center for Better Health, 3401 West End Avenue, Suite 290, Nashville, TN 37203. The family will visit with friends from 3:00 – 4:00 P.M. before the service.

  1. To Doug’s children and sister: I knew your father and brother when we played music together while we both lived in McMinnville. Though quiet, he was always warm and congenial, and a great 12-string picker! I always enjoyed being around him, his family, and the time we spent together. I pray God will bless you as you say goodbye…for a little while.

    Dear Anna, Leah, Marie, Diana and the extended Cantrell family – I hope that the wonderful memories you have of Doug are a silver lining to the grief you’re feeling now, and that those memories stay sharp and clear for you in the years ahead. He was a wonderful man and his loss creates a hole that will never be filled for those who knew him. Love, Patsy
