Who’s in the Pew
Doug Kittle sings in our choir and flits around in our blue skies in a plane he owns with a friend.
Doug was born in Charlottesville, Virginia, and grew up in West Virginia where his family raised beef cattle and operated a hardware store. He did his undergraduate work at Marshall University and earned an MBA at East Carolina before serving four years in the Army. He met and married Alison when they worked for the same large firm in Detroit. When their daughter Dana was a year old they moved to the gentler climate of North Carolina and, six years later, to a mini-farm near Richmond, Virginia. At the Episcopal church, Doug sang in the choir and chaired the Rector Search Committee.
Doug’s career was as a systems programmer, much of it spent focusing on network connectivity. He spent 24 years with Bank of America, during which time it acquired Merrill Lynch and merged with Nationsbank. The challenges were numerous: sixteen thousand ATMs, funds transfer and foreign exchange systems, and his staff scattered around the country.
When their daughter was five, the family met the performer Shirley Jones in a restaurant. Dana introduced herself and Ms. Jones asked if the child knew her from The Partridge Family tv show. Dana replied no, she knew her as Laurie in “Oklahoma.” That one so young attended musical theater was a surprise! But, then, her dad is a singer.
