Douglas Raymer McNair, age 90, passed away January 2, 2020. He was born in Dayton, Ohio; married in New York to Barbara in 1961; they lived in Alaska for 16 years; had two sons, Scott and Tom; moved to Mount Vernon in 1973. Doug worked in refrigeration and heating, retired at age 81. He appreciated and loved his daughter-in-law, Sylvia and his two grandchildren, Ava and Jake. After asking family and friends what they will remember most about Doug, here are their replies: "A man among men, sense of humor, the story telling, fixing anything so it worked well, love of flying and adventure, protection, tenacity, kindness, being a "man's man", gentleness, happiness, friendliness, confidence, generosity, intelligence and the Bing Crosby voice". A thought from his wife of almost 59 years: Doug's favorite expression was, (if the person was someone special,) "He was a man to ride the river with". I did, and what a journey we had. Doug's final resting place will be with his son, Tom, at Clear Lake Cemetery. Arrangements are under the care of Lemley Chapel. Lemley Chapel
