Doak Fling

Doak Fling Doak Fling, 71, of Georgetown, passed away on February 19, 2019, surrounded by his family.
Doak was born in Jacksonville, Texas, on October 29, 1947, to his loving parents Charles "Buck" and Dessie Fling. Doak was one of a kind. His personality was larger than life, yet his humble approach was contagious. Doak married Pam Smith, the absolute love of his life, on September 27, 1975, in Athens, Texas. The two shared joyful years together and were blessed to be come parents when Amanda, their baby girl, was born.
Doak understood the importance of education and continued learning after high school. He attended Lon Morris College and Stephen F. Austin State University. Doak applied his skill set to the finance world. He was the President of First National Bank in Georgetown, Texas, and later was a financial advisor and CFP for Edward Jones Investments. After 26 years, Doak decided to walk away from the workforce and enjoy retirement with Pam.
He was always a giver, though, and not one to slow down, so Doak served on the board of many organizations. Here are just a few of his accomplishments: Chairman of the board and Metro Board Chair at the YMCA; board member of the Texas Baptist Children's Home; member of the Georgetown City Council; and chairman of the board at the Georgetown Health Foundation. He also enjoyed his membership at the Berry Creek Country Club.
Doak was a faithful member at First Baptist Church Georgetown for many years and was a solid disciple of Christ. He deeply loved his family and always worked hard to provide for them. When he wasn't at work, or with his family, you could find him in the outdoors, playing golf, deer hunting or traveling. Often, you would catch Doak playing with his two grandchildren, his most favorite activity. Doak will be sorely missed, yet his memory and legacy will live on through his family and those that knew him best.
Doak was preceded in dead by his parnts, Buck and Dessie Fling; and his brother, Rex Fling.
To cherish his memory, Doak leaves behind his wife, Pam Fling of Georgetown, Texas; daughter Amanda Jone and her husband Bryan, of Georgetown; grandchildren Aspen and Beau Jones of Georgetown; sister Martha Mahula and her husband James of Pasadena, Texas; and sister Charlene Lankford of Forney, Texas.
Honorary pall bearers include Steve Campbell, Tim Kennedy, Tim Lear, Eddie Arrington, Greg Gilliland and Mike Cumberland.
