Classmate Alex Douglas has left us way too early!
Alex Douglas, 71, of Shawnee, KS passed away on Mar. 31st, 2019. He was born on June 29th, 1947 in Newark, DE to Dave and Bette Douglas. Alex was employed by Black & Veatch and Black & Veatch International for thirty years before being employed by the Department of State in their Overseas Building Operation for the past fifteen years. His career stretched throughout the United States, Central America, Northern Africa, China, Indonesia, South Pacific, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. His work in foreign countries allowed him to develop Toastmaster Clubs. Some of Alex’s proudest accomplishments was becoming a Distinguished Toastmaster and helping foreign nationals improve their speaking, interview and resume skills. He was also an avid golfer and tennis player in his youth. Alex was an honorable man who will be missed by those of us who knew him. Alex was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Dave. He is survived by his wife, Jane and son, David.
There will apparently be no public service and he will be cremated. According to Ric who has been in touch with the family, he died of a heart attack in the night. At least he didn't suffer a long, arduous illness.
