Amos G. Doupe

Amos G. Doupe, 78, of Norwich, NY, passed away on Saturday, December 29, 2018, at the Valley View Manor Nursing Facility, Norwich, NY.

Amos was born in German, NY, on May 18, 1940, the son of the late Russell and Adelaide Kinney Doupe.  A lifetime resident of the area, he was a member of the United Methodist Church of Norwich.  He proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam Conflict and was a member of the American Legion Post #189, Norwich.  He had worked as a supervisor at Norwich Shoe Company for 30 plus years before leaving there to work for Kerry-Bioscience.  He also worked as an auctioneer with Hugh Parker and then later as a self-employed auctioneer.  In addition, he worked as a farrier shoeing horses and butchered for several local people.  Amos was a hard-working man who loved his family dearly.

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Carol Crandall Doupe; and his children, Kelley (Scott) Carnachan of Norwich and Terri Doupe of Altamont Springs, FL.  He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Megan (Tim McKown) Carnachan and Sarah (Vincent) Nucero, all of Norwich; his great-grandchildren, Emerson Grace and Annley Scott McKown, and Addison Amelia Nucero; a nephew, Chuck Loomis, as well as several other nieces, nephews, and cousins, and his canine companion, Sadie Mae.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Mary Horton, and a niece, Jody Loomis Blanchard.

In keeping with his wishes, there will be no funeral services.  Expressions of sympathy in memory of Amos may be directed to the Chenango SPCA, 6160 County Road 32, Norwich, NY 13815 or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, P.O. Box 1000, Dept. 143, Memphis, TN 38148-0142.

I was privileged to know Amos for oh-so many years when he took care of my horses. He was a fun fellow, could tell a good joke, and his smile lit up the world. I was saddened by his poor turn of health; now he is free of that. R. I. P. old friend. The world is poorer for your absence and you will be missed.
