He was the beloved son of Royall and Sandra (Richardson) Cregar. A 1983 graduate of The Bromfield School and 1996 graduate of Niagra University with a BA in Fine Arts (Theater, Management).

His interests included genealogy, theater, the Red Sox and Harvard History. He was most passionate about Harvard History and was Board Member and current President of the Harvard Historical Society where he shared his talents for bringing history to life. He was an avid reader, researcher and enthusiastically embraced learning new things.

Family and friends remember him as a kind, witty, and generous soul who always had a good word to say, and story to share. Annually, he spent time in Wolfboro, New Hampshire with his gang of friends. In his younger years, he ventured across country, and would regale us with his adventures. He is survived by his parents, Royall and Sandra Cregar of Harvard, his sister, MaryLee Daniels, and David Daniels, brother-in-law, of Williamstown, MA. He leaves Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and many close friends.

Condolence & Memory Journal

I am shocked and saddened to learn of Doug's passing. He was one of the best managers I ever had, and even better colleague. His professional recommendations changed the course of my career and life in unexpectedly wonderful ways. That was who he was.
