Doug was part of the “3 Musketeers” along with Mike McCluney, Chuck Merrill and, friend, Terry Ferguson.

Doug was a jack of all trades. He was self-employed and worked in construction, painting, and house building. He even worked on tugboats. He drove tractor trailers for twenty-three years. Fun fact: Doug even transported race cars for Nascar driver, Richard Petty.

Doug was a dog lover, the #1 Steelers fan, and, also a huge fan of drag racing and Nascar. His hobbies included fishing, hunting, camping, fixing cars, baseball, and playing guitar. He also did sound and lights for the band “The Clue”.

Douglas will be dearly missed by his friends and family. His family would like to give special thanks to his wonderful hospice nurses especially nurse D., nurse Denise, social worker Angela and all clergies.

During this very difficult time, the Tippett Family would appreciate any support. Due to the sudden passing it has caused hardship for the family. Donations will help to assist with medical costs, assistance with every day and household expenses.

Arrangements are being handled by Cremation Society of Virginia - Newport News Office.
