Passionate, compassionate, leader, charismatic, funny, genuine, mentor, visionary, risk taker, thoughtful, committed, faithful, friend, are just a few ways that friends, family and colleagues have described Doug.
In Southington, Doug, along with a talented and committed group of staff and volunteers, helped build on a foundation starting back in 1928 to provide people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities and experiences to help reach their greatest potential. Doug fondly and enthusiastically called the Southington Y; ‘The Mecca' of all Ys. Doug’s leadership style helped mentor many young Y professionals and allowed them to follow a career path of service to others.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the YMCA Camp Sloper Scholarship Fund, Southington Community YMCA, 29 High Street, Southington, CT 06489, Attn: IMO Doug McLeod
