RIP, Doug....

Post by DoubleDipper on Wed Nov 27, 2013 11:59 pm

Doug Penner passed away Wednesday.
 
Doug was an unbelievably ardent Pilots fan, a former UP student, owner of the T-Room, and a Marine…..many UP students have considered Doug a friend, advisor and mentor since he bought the T-Room in 1961.
 
I got to know Doug quite well over the years, and will certainly miss him…..no doubt many others feel the same.
 
I’m sure someone like Stoney will post the time of his funeral mass, but I believe it’s on the UP campus on Saturday, December 7.
 
Here’s an article (with Doug’s picture) from almost three years ago:
