Daniel Edward Douglas “Little Dude” was born April 18, 1943 to Marion "Dude" and Helen Douglas in Pine Valley. He was their third child and first son. Dan attended Pine Town School for his elementary schooling then Halfway High School graduating in 1961.
After high school he attended a tech school in Klamath Falls, Oregon before entering the Army. He served at may bases including one in Germany.
He worked at several different jobs following his stint in the service. The one he enjoyed best was working for Washington State; a job of which he retired from.
He enjoyed rodeoing, hunting, fishing, and having a beer with family and friends. He built many close friendships and he never met a stranger.
In his younger days he loved working cattle with the Del Curto’s. Sometimes if the Del Curto’s were loading horses when Dan was on his way to school. He would just leave his school books at the end of the lane and skip school and go with them.
There were so many loving memories of his life that they can’t all be written down. He loved spending time with the Crow Family and so many more that again, the list of names is long. He was a loving, caring, helpful person. He was the peacemaker of his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Dan is survived by his sisters; Barbara Carey of New Mexico, Sharon Hubbart of California, Donna Coyle of Idaho, Phyllis Gubser of Washington, Beverly Chadwick of Baker City and Bessie Iverson of Halfway, Oregon; brother Allen Douglas of Halfway, Oregon; two special nieces Terrie Simons and Rusti Lattin; and many other extended family and friends.
