Douglas (Dougie) Gerard Confessore, 41, of North Port, Florida died August 27, 2018 from faulty surgery. He was born in Daytona Beach, Florida on January 20, 1977. At the age of six weeks, Dougie was adopted by his mother Joyce Confessore Hepsworth and his father Douglas H. Hepsworth. Dougie loved the beach and won a surfing contest at the age of 4. Everyone always called him "homerun Dougie" because they knew that when Dougie got up to bat, it was sure to be a homerun! He played baseball for many years. With his infectious smile, heart of gold and caring soul, he won over many long lasting friendships and was loved by all!
Dougie is survived by his young son Gavin Confessore; his Mom Joyce Confessore Berry and his Stepfather Ronald W. Berry; his sister Stefani Stone; his closest cousin Lisa Taglienti; his best friends John Stephens, Jennifer Bernstein and Karen Bornstein; and his brother-in-law, niece, nephew, aunt, uncle, and cousins.
