The family of Mr. Joel Fine, a US Navy Veteran, requests the presence and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard at the graveside rendering of military honors of their loved one.  We are honored to accept this invitation.
Joel Douglas (Doug) Fine passed away on June 23, 2021. He was surrounded by family when his soul left his broken and tired earthly body. He is now in total peace and health with Jesus in Heaven.
Doug was born in Atlanta, Georgia on December 21, 1943 to Loretta Tabor Fine and Joel Fine (both deceased). He is survived by Gina, his wife of 52 years; his son and daughter, Jay Fine and Stephanie Legg; daughter-in-law, Kathy Fine; son-in-law, Kevin Legg; and grandsons, Alex, Brandon, and Caleb Fine; a sister, Debbie Sloat and a brother, Mike. He was preceded in death by a brother, Mark Fine.
Throughout Doug’s complex life, he maintained an unwavering love for Christ our Savior, his family, and his country. He served his country in the U.S. Navy, created lasting friendships at Pineville High School, garnered respect from colleagues throughout his professional career, and never lost his love for sports.
