Douglas Edward Menchey, 63, resident of Hampstead, Maryland, died in the early morning hours of Thursday, November 24, 2016 at the Carroll Hospice Dove House from complications from cancer.

Born September 13, 1953 in Gettysburg, PA, he was the son of E. Naomi (Halter) Menchey of Taneytown and the late Charles Edward Menchey. He is survived by his significant other, Laurie J. Bostic.

Doug graduated for Westminster High School Class of 1971. He was previously employed by Menchey Construction Company, and currently was employed with the Carroll County Public School System maintenance department. He enjoyed NASCAR, NHRA, and carpentry. He especially enjoyed time with his children and grandchildren; joking around with the guys in the shop; sharing good times with friends; and spending time in his favorite chair with all his kitties. He loved his diet coke, Yuengling beer, ice cream, lifesavers, and the movie Blazing Saddles. Doug was a good dad, friend, and mentor and will be dearly missed by all.

Surviving in addition to his mother and significant other are sons, Bryan Menchey of Manchester, Dan Menchey and wife Nicole of Kennedyville, and Justin Menchey of Hampstead; grandchildren, Brady, Daniel and Debra Menchey; sisters, Deborah Bean and husband James of Westminster and Dorothy Diehl of Hanover, PA; nephews, Randy Diehl, Jimmy Bean, and Bradley Diehl; former spouse, Carol Menchey of Dundalk; and furry feline “Radar”. He was predeceased by his 1st wife, Debbie Hudgins.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at the MYERS-DURBORAW FUNERAL HOME, 91 Willis Street, Westminster with Rev. Eric Marstellar officiating. Interment will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Silver Run. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Monday from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m.
