MYRTLE BEACH—Robert “Bob” Brian Douglas, born 1940, died June 5.

He was the son of the late Earle and Hattie Douglas.

Bob is survived by his adoring wife Linda (Avitable) Douglas; daughters Christine Freeman and husband Darrell and Beth Douglas and grandchildren Robert James McDonald, Christopher Thomas Freeman and Meagan Leigh Freeman.

He is predeceased by brothers Earle and Frank and sister Doreen Fiengo.

He was so very proud of his two daughters and was devoted to his grandchildren.

He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.

We will dearly miss him.

Bob was so proud of being a Marine, he would always say, “Once a Marine always a Marine.”

He worked for many years at Yale University, where he was introduced to the world of computers. He later worked for FRM, traveling to many different universities, training people on computers for energy management. He earned many letters of recognition of which he was very proud.

When he wasn't working, he loved music and acting at the community theater. He enjoyed camping, boating, skiing and karaoke.

A memorial service will be held at 11a.m., June 12, at Goldfinch Funeral Home, Beach Chapel.
