April 28 1941 - January 7 2022

Everett Douglas (Doug) Brashers, a man who was passionate about his country and served his country with honor, joy and no regret, left the world and family he loved to be with his creator. With loving family present, he passed away from a stroke on January 7th. Born April 28, 1941, in Tulsa Oklahoma, he was 80 years old. Services have been entrusted to Dighton-Marler Funeral Home of Stillwater.

Doug was born on April 28, 1941 to Robert Epp and Veda Newton Brashers in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He joined the Air Force and after retiring he completed his bachelor’s degree at the University of Tulsa. He then worked with Southwestern Bell until his second retirement. He married the love of his life, Beverly on November 19, 1988.

Doug’s passions included loving his beautiful wife of 34 years, avidly reading, enjoying classic cars, tinkering on computers and being with his friends and family. He had a warm and funny personality with an infectious laugh and smile.

Doug is survived by his wife of the home and two sons Tony Brashers, Brian Mason and numerous grandchildren and was pre-deceased by his two children, Douglas Jr. and Tina Brashers and brother Russell Mason of Tulsa.

Funeral service to celebrate Doug’s life will be held 10:00 AM on Friday, January 14th at Dighton-Marler Funeral Home, 5106 N Washington Street, Stillwater, OK 74075 and the burial service will be at 2:30 PM on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at Fort Gibson National Cemetery at 1423 Cemetery Road, Fort Gibson, OK 74434.

This month’s Great Oklahoma Classic is a 1954 Chevrolet BelAir “Rest-o-mod” that belongs to Doug and Beverly Brashers of Perkins Oklahoma. The exterior is Redondo Red with White top and side inlays.  Body and paint repairs have been done by the “Bill Scott Body Shop” of Perkins.

Doug found the 54 BelAir in November of 2014 in Bartlesville.  After a good looking over and a great test drive, Doug made the purchase.

The original front clip has been replaced with a Nova front clip which includes power disc brakes and power steering.

The duel exhaust and unmistakable Comp Cams Thumpr sound lets you know this Chevy will go!

dsc01536.jpg

The Chevy has a GM 350 cubic inch V8 that has been bored .030 over stock. The camshaft is a Comp Cams Thumpr that delivers that aggressive, head-turning sound! When he drives up you know this is not a stock 54 Chevy. Fuel is delivered through a 600-CFM Holley four barrel carburetor mounted on an Edelbrock Performer aluminum manifold. The V8 is cooled by a Northern aluminum radiator.

The power is moved to the third member through a GM 700R4 four speed automatic overdrive transmission with cooler. The third member is from a Nova 10 bolt with traction bars.

The interior has Vintage Air, Painless Wiring, Dolphin Dash Gages, tilt steering, and custom console with floor shift.

The seats are 6-way power in the front with custom seat in the rear with arm rest that has been upholstered by “Collin Auto Trim” of Stillwater Oklahoma.

The BelAir rides on a set of Summit Sport Star wheels with 205/60R15’s on the front and 235/60R15’s on the rear.

This cool 1954 BelAir cruises along the open road at 70 MPH, turning a little over 2000 RPM’s and brakes and drives like a new car.

The Cimarron Starlite Cruisers sincerely will miss our "Doug" Brashers! Doug was truly an American Classic!
