Douglas Blaine Tabot, 59, passed away peacefully on June 29, 2022, at Portneuf Medical Center from complications of kidney and liver failure. He was surrounded by his loving wife and two children. Doug was born on October 6, 1962, in Preston, Idaho, the son of LaVern and Margaret Talbot. Doug grew up on the family farm in Winder, Idaho with his seven brothers and one sister as well as many cousins. They enjoyed working hard alongside their father as well as hunting and fishing in the surrounding area.
He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Tennessee Nashville mission. After returning home, he married Cathy Carter on May 4, 1984, in Preston, Idaho. They were later sealed in the Logan Utah Temple. Doug’s testimony of the gospel never faltered. He always knew that the Church was true. He served faithfully in many callings, but his favorite was as a teacher in Primary.
Doug worked in the auto industry selling cars for thirty plus years in both Idaho and Utah. After many years working as a car salesman, he decided to switch gears and began working at Amy’s Kitchen in Pocatello, Idaho. There he met many new friends and thoroughly enjoyed working with them. He was very much a social person. He enjoyed visiting with family, friends, and strangers and loved to tell jokes and stories. He had a winning smile, a can-do attitude, and a heart the size of the sky. He was always ready to lend a hand and lift others up.
Doug is survived by his wife, Cathy Talbot; daughter, Michaela Talbot; son, Dalton Talbot, all of Downey, Idaho; his sweet mother, Margaret Talbot; sister, Joy Talbot; brothers, Gordon (Debbie), Kent (Barbra), Mont (Shelly), Travis (Gina), Sid (Jamie), Cody (Nikki), and Dustin Talbot; in-laws, Lyle and Darlene Carter; sisters-in-law, Vickie (Steve) Wanner, Shauna (Bruce) Smith. He was preceded in death by his dear father, LaVern Talbot.
