Joseph "Kpah" Dougan
December 22, 1960 - May 2, 2016

So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord.  For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”-- 2 Corinthian 5: 6-8

In loving memory and in thanksgiving to our Lord Jesus Christ, the Dougan, Wesseh, Johnson, Allen, and Mossburg families will like to announce the sudden home going of our beloved brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, and friend Joseph "Kpah" Dougan. Kpah was found unresponsive at his resident in Paynesville. He was taken to the ELWA Hospital in Monrovia and later transitioned the morning of May 2, 2016.
