After Princeton Doug served his country for 58 years — six years in the Air Force, four in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the rest in private-sector military-defense in both technical and senior management positions. He was an adjunct professor of management at American University.
Doug was a lay reader in the Episcopal Church and enjoyed building aircraft, tank, and ship models. A 32-inch model of the 1843 USS Princeton, a gunboat, was his major project. A classmate remembers, “He was always cheerful.” His family always came first. He was generous and unassuming.
Doug died Aug. 17, 2020, of congestive heart failure. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Patti, their two daughters; one son; and four grandchildren.
