Obituary

Obituary for Douglas Robert Mook

Dr. Douglas R. Mook, 67, of Hollis, died peacefully on Friday, October 18, 2019 after a long battle with a rare neurological disorder. He was born on July 17, 1952 in Englewood, NJ, son of Bob and Connie (Verheyden) Mook.

He was the husband of Julie (Hanson) Mook. They were married on March 3, 1984 in Berlin, NH.

Doug graduated from high school in New Brunswick, NJ; he continued on to MIT where he earned his SB, SM, and EE degrees. He then went on to earn his Doctorate in Electrical Engineering and Ocean Engineering from MIT’s joint program with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. This collaboration allowed him to be at MIT during the school year and spend his summers at the Cape in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Doug felt this was a dream come true as he was able to combine his love of learning with his passion for the ocean.

In his spare time, Doug enjoyed windsurfing, sailing, biking, swimming, and walking in the woods. He also loved music, reading, and spending quality time with friends and family. He was brilliant but down to earth, known for his sense of humor, kind heart, and infectious laugh.

In his professional life, Doug was a problem solver who excelled at adapting technology to help people. He was co-founder and president of The Aptec Group from 2001 until his retirement in 2013. Previously, he ran the ASW Division, Advanced Systems, Advanced Technology, and Signal Processing organizations within Sanders/Lockheed Martin from 1984 to 1999, and served as the COO and VP of Engineering at TechOnLine. Doug also served on the Board of Directors for many technology companies.

Along with his beloved wife of 35 years, he is survived by his son, Kevin Mook of Watertown, MA; daughter and son-in-law, Kim McDonald and husband Andrew of Chicago, IL; his granddaughter who will arrive in the near future; his sister and brother-in-law, Carolyn Nagle and husband John III of Hollis; and his nephew, John Nagle IV of Hoboken, NJ.

SERVICES: A memorial visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 from 4-6pm at Davis Funeral Home, One Lock Street in Nashua. Interment will be held privately at East Cemetery in Hollis.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like you to consider a donation to Dr. Dickerson’s Dementia Research Program in the Massachusetts General Hospital FTD Unit. Your generous gifts support the clinical care and research efforts for individuals living with early onset dementias. Donations may be made by mail: Dr. Brad Dickerson, Attn: Raseeka Premchander, 149 13th Street, Suite 2691, Charlestown, MA 02129 (Please make checks payable to “MGH Dr. Dickerson Lab” and in the memo line put “Dementia Research”), or donate online at https://Giving.MassGeneral.org/FTDUnit.

We were saddened to hear the news about Doug. Our sincere concordances to his family. I had the privilege of working with Doug at Sanders while Doug was building the Signal Processing Group. Doug was one of the most intelligent engineers I have met and most importantly, a deeply caring individual. I learned so much while working with Doug and those lessons are still important in my life today. He had a profound impact on many, not just with technology but also how to interact with everyone. Doug’s laugh is something I enjoyed, brightened any situation, and will always remember. Keeping Doug and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
