Doug Alan Webster passed away 6/18/20, surrounded by family. Doug was born 10/9/1940 to David and Doris Webster in Bell, California. He grew up in Lynwood, California alongside his sister Donna. Doug graduated from Lynwood High School in 1960 and set off for college at BYU, because he heard Utah had good skiing. At BYU he met a beautiful twin named Marilyn, whom he talked into marrying him. They were married in Emerson, New Jersey, and later sealed in the Los Angeles Temple.
Doug served in the Army as a medic during the Vietnam War. As a Newport Beach Police Officer, Doug received a Medal of Valor for jumping from a helicopter into the pitch-black ocean and saving a man’s life. He owned several small businesses and retired early after moving to Utah. Doug and Marilyn have lived in Alpine, Utah for the past 25 years and have loved their mountain views, BYU sports, and dear friends near and far.
Doug is survived by his wife Marilyn, son Darren (Lisa), daughters Karen, Suzie (Chris), Debbie (Brent); grandchildren Hailey, Noah, Hunter, Summer, Jordan, Kennedy, Kassidy, Keegan, Luke, Teylor, Kaycee.
