Everett Douglas Briscoe Jr., age 55, died on June 5, 2008 in Dartmouth England. He was preceded in death by his father, the late Everett Briscoe, his grandparents, the late Lucious and Della Briscoe and Roscoe and Mittie Meadows.
Mr. Briscoe was born and raised in Jackson, Georgia. He was a graduate of Jackson High School. After graduating from the University of Georgia, he visited the Virgin Islands, and found a love of sailing. He purchased a boat and began a career of boat charters. This is where he met his wife, Allison Grant of Dartmouth England. She worked for Douglas as his cook, and on board nurse. They fell in love and returned to her hometown to marry. After starting a family, Douglas opened "The Canvas Factory", selling canvas sails, bags, and boat covers all over the world. His love of the ocean never left. He purchased a new sail boat, and sailed around the world. He was an avid sailor, but most of all a very devoted father to his three girls and loved them with all his heart.
