Obituary

Douglas Murray Queen of Williamstown, MA passed away 31 October 2019 at Cascade House, Pittsfield, MA after a decade of declining health.
The son of the late Gerald and Florence Lucille Beecher Queen, Doug was born 14 February 1937 in Detroit, Michigan. He was a graduate of Grosse Pointe High School. His interest in rowing took him to the University of Pennsylvania where he earned a BA in Economics after he served in the US Army. He subsequently became a CPA, working for Touche-Ross and Greyhound in San Francisco before moving to Wall Street where he was employed by Evans and Company. In 1973, he formed Douglas M. Queen, Inc., providing financial analysis and consulting to the North American Cement Industry. He published a quarterly report for the top international cement companies, which he visited frequently. He earned an MBA from The Wharton School of Business in 1988 based upon his reports. These continued until his health forced his retirement in 2010.
With his first wife, Carla Gibson, he had two sons. His subsequent marriage to Jean M. Worthington of New Canaan, CT in 1977 added two more sons to Doug’s family. Doug, Jean and their family moved to Williamstown in 1985.
Doug was an avid fan of the New York Islanders hockey team during their Stanley Cup years in the late 70’s and early 80’s. He loved playing hockey, coaching both hockey and youth baseball, and supported his four son’s academic, athletic and personal development as a devoted father and mentor. His Labrador retrievers held a special place in his heart over the years and he was never without one in his life. Friends and family will remember him for his lifelong optimism, innovation, generosity and warmth. At formal events, he was easily recognizable by his large smile, tortoise shell glasses and bow ties.
Doug is survived by his wife, Jeannie, his beloved dog, Bhuie, and his four sons; Stephen H of Enumclaw, WA; Derrick B (Vivian) of Manhattan; Nicholas H of Seattle, WA and Robert W (Ramida) of Olympia, WA; and grandsons Campbell, Daniel, Harrison and Braden and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his bothers Gerald B. and William W. and his sister, MaryAnne Pear.
Memorials will be held in the new year in Williamstown.
