Fort Bend Herald, Thursday, January 28, 2010:

Douglas Edward Brau, 54, of Rosenberg, went to be with the Lord on January 25, 2010 in Richmond. He was born April 4, 1955 in Richmond, Texas to Henry and Bernice (Prasatik) Brau. Doug was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Rosenberg.

Doug devoted much of his heart to his work. He was employed for many years as the Garden-department manager, then later as a door greeter for Wal-Mart in Richmond, with over twenty-seven years of service. Doug dearly loved his co-workers, and thoroughly enjoyed helping his customers.

Doug was greatly inspired to devote his energies to worthy causes. In his early years, he spent many hours helping to raise money for the Jerry Lewis Telethon using the parking lot which was donated by Joe Grillo Oldsmobile in Rosenberg. He also worked with the Children's Miracle Network and Santa Behind the Badge. He had such fun cooking hot dogs with the Richmond Fire Department for their Halloween Carnival. Doug was a member of Richmond Citizens Police Academy, class of 12, 2004, and Richmond Citizens Fire Academy, class 10, 2004.

Doug leaves behind his wife of 28 years, Margaret Kay Brau and his mother and father, Bernice and Henry Brau, all of Rosenberg, two God-children, Michele Marie Rehak and Miranda Marie Rehak, of Rosenberg, as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind a sister-in-law, Mary Shifflett of Damon and brother-in-law, Kenneth Thompson and wife, Loraine of East Bernard. He also leaves behind many special friends with the Richmond Fire and Police Departments.

Visitation will be held from 5:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M., Friday, January 29, 2010 in the Chapel of Davis-Greenlawn Funeral Home in Rosenberg.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 A.M., Saturday, January 30, 2010 in the Chapel of Davis-Greenlawn Funeral Home in Rosenberg with interment following at Greenlawn Memorial Park in Rosenberg. Reverend Wayne Schueler will officiate the services.

Pallbearers will be Vlavinii Golovine, Keith Parr, Morgan Parr, Stephen Noto, Eric Thompson, Jason Pitz, Randy Pitz and Raymond Burciaga.
