McCafferty, Douglas, 55, of Dardenne Prairie, MO, died on July 3, 2023.
Doug was born in St. Louis, MO and graduated from high school in St. Petersburg, FL. He continued on to join the United States Marine Corp.
Doug was very family-oriented and made the decision to be a full-time caregiver to his father, mother and grandchildren. Doug enjoyed good food and was an avid sports fanatic.
