Chief Petty Officer, Douglas Lee "Doug" Fifer, USN RET, 79, of Hayden, Idaho, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 19, 2013, at his home. Graveside services with military honors will take place at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, in March of 2013.

Doug was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, to the late Daniel Lee and Annabel Littleton Fifer. He served in the U.S. Navy for 22 years, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer. He directed rescue missions in Korea and Vietnam and participated in the rescue of 14 pilots. After retiring from the Navy, Doug worked as a Data Analyst for 15 years at Litton Industries in Van Nuys, California. Doug's life goal after retirement was to move north to Idaho, which he did in 1990. He was a certified flight instructor and a volunteer pilot in Idaho for various government agencies including the Idaho Fish and Game and the FBI. His greatest flying achievement was as a pilot for Angel Flight, a nonprofit organization that provides free air transportation for any charitable, medically related need for individuals and health care organizations. Doug was also a lifelong bowler. At the age of 70, he placed 19th at the 2004 ABC National Tournament, including all age groups. But his passion and pride was in his family.

Survivors include his daughter, Danielle L. Fifer, of Bryan/College Station, Texas; son, Douglas Lee Fifer II and wife, Jennifer; and grandchildren, Audree and Connor Fifer, all of Saginaw, Texas.
