Obituary

Richard Edwin Douglass was born on February 28, 1947 in White Plains, NY to Gladys Love Douglass and Harold Douglass. Richard passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday July 10, 2019 at White Plains hospital.
Richard is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Helene Meleshkewich Douglass, children; Jeff (Kathy) Douglass of Mahopac and Kelli Douglass (Mark Voeltz) of Katonah along with 4 beloved grandchildren Brooke/Jessica Douglass and Samantha/Jillian Voeltz as well as his brother Stuart (Diane) Douglass. His brother Harold (Stephanie) Douglass predeceased Richard. He is also survived by his many brothers and sisters-in-laws and nieces and nephews.

Richard met his wife at the Purchase Community House in Purchase NY in 1963 when they were just 15 years old. After graduating White Plains HS in 1967 he served his country by joining the United States Navy and spent two years on the USS Essex, CV-9. Upon returning home from the military he married Helene and started his family.

Richard continued to serve his community and city by joining the White Plains Police department in 1969 as patrolman and retired as Detective Narcotics and was ‘20NOUT’ by June of 1989.

Richard was a devoted family man who loved being retired and having the time to spend with family. Some of his favorite things were family vacations, taking his 3 yr old granddaughter to dunkin' donuts for munchkins, spending time with all of his grandchildren, hunting in his younger days and a round of golf with Helene every now and then to name a few. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.

RIP Richard...lots of wonderful memories beginning at the Purchase Community House !! What a blessing it was for a great group of teenagers... never thought it would last all these years !!
I’m wondering if GOD called you to heaven so you wouldn’t have to listen to Helene and me during our annual (Naples, Fl.) get together ??? Poor guy never got a word in “edgewise “ ! What a good sport you always were....😇. You will be missed my sweet friend.
