Private Graveside Service

Douglas Lee Chalkley, 54, departed this life peacefully to enter his heavenly home.  He was surrounded by his family. He is survived by his mother, Mae Chalkley, son, Sabian Lee Chalkley, sister, Phyllis Ayers and brother-in-law, “brother”, Bucky Ayers; niece, Shelby R. Ayers and many loving relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his father, Garnett Lee Chalkley, Jr.

Douglas had many talents.  He was a musician, played every instrument, and was a singer.  He performed for and with some famous local and big bands.  He also played on the Radio Morning for FM 99 years ago.  Douglas had many other special talents including art, history, and was very knowledgeable in aviation. Doug was involved with many areas of the church.   He enjoyed going to Warwick Assembly of God where he played in the church band (known as Drummer Doug).  He never met a stranger.

A Private Graveside Service was held at Peninsula Memorial Park by Pastor Jim Rodriquez.  The family would like to thank The Hospice of Virginia and Weymouth Funeral Home.

Doug was a great Brother. Doug loved life and loved nature. Doug has many talents not often bragged soon he would not meet a stranger. He was great with history striking up stories with some of the VETS in the meeting or knowing them. Doug could talk to any one. You will Be missed love you Douglas Lee. Buster Brown.

Rest in peace Doug. I know we didn't keep up over the years but I am glad I had the opportunity to share good times with you when we were young. You'll always be in my memory...
