Douglas E. Messenger, 53, of Palmyra, passed away on Monday, March 9, 2020 at Hershey Medical Center. Born in Hershey, he was the son of Jack G. Messenger, II and Barbara (Buckwalter) Bell. He will be missed by Natalie Herberg, his beloved girlfriend and mother of his son, Ryan.

Doug was a colorful man, literally and figuratively, with an outspoken personality. He was a skilled tradesman who worked as a plumber for 20+ years. Doug’s favorite things to do were ride his Harley and take trips to the beach, specifically OCMD. Above all, Ryan was the light of his life, and he was proud to call him his son.

He is also survived by seven siblings: Patrick Fitzgibbons, Stasia Miller, Travis Messenger, Amber Neidlinger, Scott Bell, Lori Bell, step daughter Stephanie Skelly, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Services will be private and at the convenience of the family.
