Doug was my friend. He was very personable, but very private at the same time, but we all knew where he stood on any issue. I guess he told me more of his life stories than many, with a look and smile saying to keep it to myself. Doug had the will to prevail at any task he set his mind too, he proved it in everything he did – learning benchrest shooting, computers, and so much more. He was a great ambassador for 22 rim fire shooters, by his computer he made scoring simple and accurate, which brought in more shooters. It’s never easy to say good bye to a friend, therefore I will not, just I’ll see you at the next match.

Bob Collins, Cobb, GA

So sorry to hear of Doug's passing he was a friend to so many of us in the shooting sport. He will be missed by all who ever knew him. Semper Fi Marine!!

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.
