Douglas Ellzey Fortenberry, age 68, of Hoover, Alabama, passed away suddenly at his home on January 23rd. Doug was preceded in death by his father Eugene T. Fortenberry and his mother Isabelle Girard Fortenberry. He is survived by his wife of 42 years Jeanie Wuska Fortenberry, who is so thankful for all the good years, good times and so many laughs together; his brother Tom Fortenberry, in-laws Sara Wuska, Tim Wuska, and Jackie Wuska, as well as treasured friends. Doug was born in Jackson, MS, graduated from Mountain Brook High School and attended Auburn University. He retired in 2009 as owner of Berry Productions, Inc. In his younger days Doug was an avid golfer and part time drummer and to the end enjoyed music and watching sports. Before covid Doug attended the Episcopal Church of the Ascension but due to his kidney disease and other health issues continued his spiritual journey and prayers at home. Doug was a real trooper during all his health issues and will be greatly missed by those who knew him best. Per Doug's wishes he will have a private service.
