 Ddied in a crash at Dillant-Hopkins airport on January 13, 2005. The whole east coast was fogged in that night. On approach to a second airport with 100ft ceiling and fog, the right engine of the EMB-110 went out and the plane rolled when he tried to go around. 

From Gregory 02/22/09:

After serving in the United States Navy, Doug went on to fly airplanes. He flew with me in Alaska, and later tried to get me a job with him in Maine. He was always trying to help people, a true sailor. On the night he died he had waited a hour at the departure airport for one of his customers to bring a package when he didn't have to.
