Doc was preceded in death by his aforementioned parents; and a sister, Alta Cathey.
He is survived by his wife, Jacqueline Conley of Pikeville; daughter, Jeana DeLoach of Kodak; grandchildren, Taevan Black of Sevierville, Anjeana (Steve) Thurston of Salisbury, North Carolina; great-grandchildren, Amanda Sisco and Steven Thurston, both of Salisbury, North Carolina, Ashley Cooper of Lake City, Florida, and Talon Black of Sevierville; and three great-great-grandchildren.
