Douglas "Red" John Cimino

March 19, 1974 ~ June 7, 2019 (age 45)


Douglas "Red" J. Cimino, 45, of Brooksville, Florida, was called to be with our Lord Friday, June 7, 2019 surrounded by his family after a strong fought battle with cancer.  His devotion to his family and friends and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace.

Doug was known as “Red” to all who knew him.  He always wore a smile on his face, had a funny story to tell and would drop everything to help others when needed. He owned and operated a local tractor/hauling company.  He met and fell in love with his fiancée Danielle Lupo who was always by his side.  He was a devoted family man with very close friends he would call his brothers and sisters.

He is preceded in death by his beloved mother and father, John and Marlene Cimino, Uncle Tommy Proudfoot and best (four legged) friend, Maggie.  He leaves behind his fiancée, Danielle Lupo, who was by his side through the good and the bad times; his daughter, Katlyn; grandson, Nathan Grae; as well as Danielle’s children, James and Taylor; sister, Debbie Miller; brother-in-law, Brad Pollock; nieces, Megan and Abigail Miller; aunts, Isobel Proudfoot, Anne Stronach and Barbara Gallagher; uncle: David Gallagher.

A Gathering for family and friends will be held from 4:00-5:00pm, Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at Merritt Funeral Home, Brooksville Chapel, where a Memorial Service will begin at 5:00pm, with Pastor Jack Dunn officiating.

For those who are able to attend, please come as you are.  Red was a proud, hard-working Man and that is how he would want it.

“Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard,
but always near,
So loved, so missed, so very dear”
"Family Owned & Operated"
