    Doug passed away in his sleep early Tuesday morning. He was a proud descendant of 1700’s Pennsylvania pioneer families. Doug was the son of Clifford and Jean Weeter and was born in Wilkinsburg, PA amid the massive open hearth steel plants along the Monongahela River valley as WWII raged.

    Doug inherited family passions for outdoor sports, athletics, cooking and, above all else, aviation. Soon after he graduated from Waynesburg College in 1968 he enlisted in the USMC and, as a 2nd Lt., received his wings at Pensacola, FL. Doug piloted F4 Phantom jets on over 100 combat missions over the skies of Vietnam. Then, in 1974, he began an international career piloting some of the most sophisticated corporate jet aircrafts of the twentieth century. Included was over a decade as a Gulfstream pilot for members of the United Arab Emirate’s royal family.

    After retiring from aviation he spent his spare time target shooting, reading and later in life started working part time at Toyota creating and updating spreadsheets and working with management to make duties more efficient. He enjoyed riding the golfcart around the neighborhood and being the “street patrol” with the family’s lab as his co-pilot.

    Doug and Sunshine, of Reynoldsville, PA, were married in DuBois, PA in 1984. Doug and Sunshine raised their children, Cliff and Melissa, on tranquil Skidaway Island in The Landings community of Savannah surrounded by friends and neighbors.

    Doug is survived by Sunshine, his wife of 34 years, his children Cliff and Melissa, his brother Bruce, brothers-in-law Ted and Gary, sisters-in-law Georgia, Elaine and Connie and nieces Debby, Kaaren, Stacy, Heather, Courtney, Katie, and nephews Shawn and Daryl.

    A memorial service and celebration of Doug’s life will be held 11AM this Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Fox and Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel, 7200 Hodgson Memorial Drive, Savannah, Ga 31406. Memorial contributions can be made to the charity of one’s choice.

    Bye Doug

    I too only check this site every 2-3 weeks since retiring from the sport and was shocked to read this news. I remember Doug fondly. He was one of the good guys for sure. I'm glad I met him and happy that I got the chance to shoot with him. So sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to all who loved him.

    Now I know a little bit about Doug who was so helpful to me. We talked once on the phone and communicated numerous times via email. What a remarkable man - he never even met me but he sure went out of his way to help me.

    Again Doug, rest in peace my friend.

    Matt
