Doug was born on Dec. 6, 1962 in Boulder, CO, to Harold and Phyllis Donnelly and lived in Boulder 1962-2002. Doug participated in basketball, swim team, loved hiking and was awarded medals at Colorado's Special Olympic competition. Doug graduated from Boulder High School to a standing ovation in 1982. He worked at Puritan Bennett and when the company moved to Ireland, Doug was given the sign from the building because of his loyalty to the company. He then worked for Datex-Ohmeda in Louisville until 2002, when he and his family moved to Monte Vista. Once settled there, he began building a fort that ultimately encompassed 11 trees, three levels, a pirate flag and all of the trappings of a complete hide-away where he could watch and listen to the Rio Grande that ran just to the south of his construction site. Doug's relationship with his family and friends was unique. He had an amazing dry wit and sense of humor that as you first met Doug, you would not be too sure if he was "teasing" with you or not. It took little time to find out what a treasure Doug was to everyone – he managed to develop special relationships with many, many people and he has touched by so very many lives. Whenever you find something amiss, listen for Doug's unique laugh, he will always be with you. He had the capacity for holding remarkable conversations with everyone, from his young nieces and nephew to his many, many cousins and just about anyone who would stop and visit with him. His favorite publications were Discovery and Scientific American and he followed the space programs with an avid interest. When the newspapers arrived at the door, he sat down with his favorite soda and with pen in hand, perused the paper from cover to cover, often writing his own thoughts in the margins. He is survived by his parents, Hal and Phyllis Krier Donnelly, formerly of Boulder and now residing in Monte Vista; two sisters, Colleen Dean and her children, Tyler, Timmie and Tinker, of Monte Vista; Kelly and Jerold Wilkinsen and their, daughter Kylie, of Monte Vista; also surviving, the families of Jewel Geiger, Carol and Kohler McInnis, the Small family and Pauline and Don Santi family.
