Douglas MacLean

Goshen, New York

Douglas MacLean, a retired Printer for Newsday, a former longtime resident of St. James, New York, then Canann, N.Y., and a four-year resident of Goshen, N.Y., died on December 20, 2023, at Glen Arden in Goshen, New York. He was 83 years of age.

Douglas was born on May 17, 1940, in Oceanside, Long Island, N.Y. At 18, he joined the Oceanside Fire Company, and at age 56, he joined the Canaan Protective Fire Company in Canaan, N.Y. He was known for extensively volunteering for Zion Lutheran Church in Pittsfield, MA, especially with fundraising dinners.

He loved family, card games, horse racing, and a perfect rare filet. He was genuine in everything he said and did and would always tell you the truth.

His grandchildren, Eric Schomber, Marc Schomber, Rachel MacLean Wilson, Rebecca MacLean, Luke MacLean, Morgan MacLean, and one great-grandchild, Jeremiah MacLean Wilson, also survived him.
