  • Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Sorry for your loss. Love Dick & Carol

  • Dear Dorothy, Jim, Sandy, and the Doup Family, Our deepest sympathy for your loss. Encil was a nice man, whom we have known for many years. He had fun monitoring his radio and listening to the “ham” operators in the area. Heaven will have really good reception for that. Through everything, he always had a positive attitude, and was grateful for his family. You took good care of him and made sure he was comfortable. He will be missed. May it help to know that you have friends who care. We share in your loss. Sincerely, Susie and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • So sorry for the passing of Encil, I remember him from the country school and reunion we had at the firehouse in Fredericktown for ones attending the old Arnold Scho0l. Many blessings and prayers.

  • Jim, Sandy, and family:

    Thinking of you with prayers and sympathy. Keep the memories as your strength.

  • Dear Mrs. Doup and Family,

    I was saddened to hear of Encil’s passing. I will remember him for his smile and sense of humor. He always teased me and my sons when he worked at Save A Lot when we would go shopping there. He will be missed but remembered by many for the many wonderful ways he touched people’s lives. God be with you and your family at this time.
