Hugh Douglas McIndoe
Hugh McIndoe, or Doug, as he was always known, died peacefully Thursday, Nov. 17. Throughout his life, he never shied away from sharing love and hugs with everyone, and he was known for always offering a helping hand to any in need. With his contagious smile, he made friends wherever he went and his house was open to all. He was born on Aug. 15, 1957 in Red Bank, New Jersey to Scot and Marlene McIndoe, then, as a baby, the family moved to Laguna Beach, California. Doug and his older brother, Eric, grew up running on the beach and surfing the So. Calif. waves, something he loved and was very proud of. He moved to the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii when he was just 15 to "surf the big waves," which he did very well. He eventually moved back to the mainland, farming briefly in Barstow, California, then graduated from Chico State University with a degree in Chemistry. He loved the Chico area, and while there, skied down Mt. Lassen and explored the Ishi Wilderness, which he loved so much. His traveling bug would then take him to Jackson, Wyoming following his good buddy Mike, in what he called his "wood getter," a beat up old Subaru Justy. He loved that car - and it got him to Jackson Hole where the big mountains were. There, he met Betsy, while skiing in Teton Village and they became a quick pair living on the shores of Jackson Lake, and in Wilson, Wyoming. His love for the outdoors grew and eventually led him to climbing, taking friends to the summit of the Grand Teton countless times. Doug and Betsy owned a business for two years at Grand Targhee Ski Resort where his love for skiing grew stronger and they enjoyed many, many big Wyoming POW days together. They missed the other side of the Tetons, moved back to Jackson where he was employed by Satellite Aero, the fixed base operator of the Jackson Airport as Line Supervisor.
