Savannah, GA

On the evening of Tuesday, February 13, 2024, Douglas Castleman Anthony passed away peacefully of natural causes in his home at The Social in Savannah. He was 101 years old. Doug was born in Hague, in Westmoreland County, Virginia on November 1, 1922. He was the fourth child, and the third son, of Mary and Milton Anthony. When quite young, he moved with his mother and three surviving siblings to Washington, DC where she could find a job to support the family. Doug left school early and took a job delivering Western Union telegrams on bicycle. He joined the Navy in 1940 and during the Second World War served in the USS Columbia (CL-56) and later on the island of Funafuti in the South Pacific. At the end of the war Doug married Miss Patsy Heffernan of Savannah, Georgia. The couple had Carole and later a son named Joe. Apparently they thought that was plenty enough.The family spent about ten years in the DC area until the Navy sent them to Jacksonville, Florida. After retiring from the service in 1960, Doug moved the family to Savannah. He delivered the US mail in his second career and enjoyed chatting up his customers and the exercise. Doug was preceded in death by Patsy, his sweet wife of fifty years, his dear mom and three siblings, Jack, Russell, and Curtis. Doug shared his time in several charitable endeavors and helping to organize retirement groups for Navy units for decades. His quick wit amused folks his entire life, right up until the last days. He was a great human, as a husband and father and friend. Doug is survived by his daughter, Carole of Savannah and son, Joe of San Diego. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Doug's memory to St. Vincent's Academy or Benedictine Military School.

Billy Bernard Thompson died peacefully, Monday, February 19th, at home in Savannah surrounded by his loving family. Mr. Thompson, son of Emmitt Otto and Zelma Clarke Thompson grew up in Lyons, Georgia. After graduating from Lyons High School, he joined the US Air Force. He continued his education at the University of Georgia, graduating with BBA and MBA degrees. While in Athens, Mr. Thompson was employed by the comptroller’s office at the University System of Georgia. In 1965, he moved his family to become the comptroller and treasurer at Augusta College, now known as Augusta University. In 1981, he joined Georgia Iron Works as general manager, retiring in 1994 as VP of logistics and quality assurance. He formed BBT Consulting in 1995, fully retiring in 2019, at 89 years of age. He was a faithful member of First Baptist Church, serving as a deacon and usher and attended the Crusader and Cason Brooker Sunday School Classes. As a member of the Exchange Club of Augusta for 54 years, he served in many capacities, including treasurer and president (1990). He continued to be an active member of Sigma Nu fraternity. He was also a member of the Augusta Country Club. The Presence of “Billy B” was welcomed and admired everywhere. Whether at the Exchange Club, Masters Tournament, or the Buccaneer, he was always an exciting edition to a gathering of family, peers, and friends. His soft eyes and light prance gave an everlasting comfort to All around Him. His Children and Grandchildren always felt the security of His Presence. He was the interweaving link between All of the Life that precipitated from Him, and He made sure to be. He planted seed of Love and Respect in His Family, which will bear balanced fruits for the generations to come. His Love and Service of All That Is, was and will remain His character. He rarely spoke out to anyone, and if He did, it was for a Great Grand Lesson to be listened to intently. Whether it was His Balance Sheet Expertise, Voice of Reason, Ears like an Owl, Homing Beacon Behavior, or Master Foresight, He was always so desperately wanted and needed by those around Him. Each piece of His Story rotated around like the Planets around the Sun, where He shed light and love onto everything He could see.
