Earl Douglas ‘Doug’ Queen


A celebration of life will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 17 at Regan Beach West in South Lake Tahoe for Earl Douglas “Doug” Queen, who died unexpectedly Sept. 3, 2006, in South Lake Tahoe.

Doug was born March 6, 1967, in Harrison Township, Pa., and had lived in the Lake Tahoe area for the last 12 years. Shortly after graduation from Deer Lakes High School in 1985 Doug moved to California, where he lived in various parts of the state before moving to Nevada and the Lake Tahoe area.

A framing carpenter, Doug had worked in the construction field for more than 12 years.

Doug was a free spirit. That’s how he lived his life. He spent most of his adult life in California and Nevada near the mountains and beautiful clear-water lakes. His life was devoted to his daughter, Hailey, who was his pride and joy. He will be missed, but his family takes comfort that he now resides with his beloved father and grandmother in heaven. Doug touched many lives, and was the best friend anyone could hope to have. He will be missed deeply, but remembered forever.

Survivors include his 10-year-old daughter, Hailey E. Queen of Stateline, Nev.; mother, Donna Queen of Bairdsford, Pa.; and sisters, Christine Gacci of Bairdsford and Nancy Colton of West Deer Township, Pa. He was preceded in death by his father, Earl D. Queen Dec. 25, 1999.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Hailey E. Queen Memorial Fund at any El Dorado Savings Bank.
