Douglas Arnold Thiery, 74, Adair Co., KY/Cook Co., IL native (1943-2017)

He moved here, with his wife, Nurse Practitioner Diane Thiery, just three decades ago. Since that time the family has grown and contributed - in ways few others have ever done. He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather who fully supported many professional careers with his devoted character and time spent alongside Diane at home visits and nursing home rounds as they ventured throughout Adair County to meet the medical needs of many. He was of the Methodist faith and a Master Carpenter whose beautiful work is evident in homes of the ones he loved as he helped his family construct their homes. He also enjoyed horse racing and traveling with family.
