Douglas Delanoy Jr. ’50

Published in the Feb.8, 2012, issue

Doug died Sept. 26, 2011, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

He entered Princeton, where his father was in the Class of 1917, from The Hill School. He participated in track his freshman year and 150-pound crew the next two years. An English major, he was a member of the Navy ROTC and Cottage Club.

After graduation, Doug split three years of Navy service as an officer on a destroyer and a minesweeper. After his Navy stint, he joined Aubrey G. Lanston & Co., a Wall Street specialist in U.S. Treasury securities, where he became senior vice president.

He resigned from Lanston in 1973 and moved from his longtime residence in Plainfield, N.J., to work as an account executive and vice president for Merrill Lynch in Fort Lauderdale. When he retired in 1989, he became an arbitrator for the National Association of Securities Dealers and the New York Stock Exchange.

Doug had a delightfully mischievous sense of humor. He was known for his love of family, dogs (especially Bedlington terriers), books, and classical music, and he thoroughly enjoyed Florida’s sun and sea.

We extend our condolences to Carolyn, his wife of 59 years; his daughter, Holly; sons Brad and Craig; and five grandchildren.

The Class of 1950
