of Paris, AR
July 11, 1950 - September 28, 2020
Rev. M. Douglas Wise, 70, of Paris, Arkansas passed away on Monday, September 28, 2020 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He was born on July 11, 1950 in Paris to his parents, Andrew and Mae Francis (Carter) Wise. Rev. Wise was retired from U.S. Steel in Gary, Indiana and served as an evangelist at many local churches in the Paris community. He is preceded in death by his parents, Andrew and May Francis (Carter) Wise; two sisters, Mae Lou Scott and Judy Bridges; three brothers, Everette Wise, Holsey Wise and Hardy Wise and one grandson, Damarea Pitts. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Rubye Jewell (Thomas) Wise of Paris; four daughters, Monica Wise of Russellville, Valarie Lucas and husband Robert of Lawton, Oklahoma, Tina Wise of Paris and Andrea Wise of Paris; one son, Da'Kovan Wise of Paris; his first grandchild, Dauviante Wise; 9 additional grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. There are no services scheduled at this time. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Roller Funeral Home in Paris.
I'm hoping Tina Wise, Deevonda Wise, Tiffany Wise, (who commented here) or other relative might let our PHS class of 1974 know where we might also find the obituary for our dear classmate Hardy Wise.Rev. Doug's tributes reveal that he touched a lot of lives and Paris, Logan County (and the steel industry) has lost a great man, friend, neighbor, pastor... May God bless the entire Wise family near and far through the memory, faith, and Bible teaching of Rev. Doug.
Doug was polite and quiet in the 12th grade at Paris High School. The next time I visited with him was when he came to my Dad’s (Tom Buck Johns) memorial service in March of 2016. We truly appreciated his coming and once again were impressed with his gentleness and kindness. Actually, Andrew, Doug’s father was a part of my childhood when we would see him at the Paris Hardware. We extend our sympathy at this time of great loss. These condolences clearly describe Doug’s character and his life. God bless you. Judi Johns Green
I had him as a sub for a long time and i remember every time that we had him, he would make all of us laugh, he would always make sure we were having fun while we were doing our work and the minute i heard he passed away i had to hold my tears back, then i got the word that Officer Haney also passed away, so i emailed my principal and asked him if we could do memorials at the school for them and he said that would be a great idea so i was wondering if there was anything yall think should go in it? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me your ideas, and i cant wait to tell my future kids about the best substitute teacher in the world
Pastor Wise, you will deeply missed and it will be hard to see Sis. Ruby without you. I will always remember the conversations we had, good fellowship, and good food especially at Sis. Mary's house. Rest in love, many loved you but GOD loved you best. My Pastor Douglas Wise, Stephanie Gilbert.
Sending my deepest condolence for your lost. Rev Wise aka Mad Dog will truly be missed.
So very sorry to hear of your loss, Ms Rubye. I know how very hard it is to lose a Daddy and a Grandfather. Prayers for you and your family that you will be comforted and feel our Lord's love and peace.
Our deepest condolences to the Wise family during these times of grieving. Rev. Wise was a true man of God, always showing compassion and being able to crack a joke just at the right time. I’m sure that he would want us to celebrate his life for we know that God sees this as a celebration of His life. For the Bible says to us “My flesh and my heart fail: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.” Psalms 73:26. We know this to be true and we should hold it to our hearts. You all have such a beautiful and kind family. You are in our prayers daily and we are so sorry for this loss.
Life is just a stopping place, A preview of what's to be, A resting place along the way to , To sweet eternity. May God's peace be with you. Condolences, Love and Prayers,Cousin Annie
