Douglas James Peffer

      Douglas James Peffer, a 17 year resident of Angels Camp and Dorrington, passed away at age 49.

      Born in Fremont to Robert and Anita Peffer, who currently live in Ashland, Oregon. Douglas was the youngest of four children;  his brother is Mike Peffer, and  sisters are Cheryl Ugland, and Jeanne Peffer-Lucas.

   He graduated from Mission San Jose High School in 1981, joined the Marine Corps in 1982 and was honorably discharged in 1985 as a corporal.

   He met his wife Stephanie (Phillips) Peffer in high school and they were married  on July 20, 1985. They have been married for 27 years.

   They have three adult children;  Robert Peffer, 26 is a Sergeant in the Marine Corps and his wife Ashleigh Peffer, 24, is a Corporal in the Marine Corps. His sister Andrea Peffer, 20 is studying to be a Certified Nursing Assistant.

   Doug was a successful, skilled pilot and instructor. He owned Springfield Flying Service at Columbia Airport.

     He was always passionate about his family, his work, flying and his close airport friends. He loved any spare time to ride on his bike and find a "road less traveled" in the mountains he loved.

   Please help share in his memory at a service on Thursday August 30, 2012 at 11 AM Chapel in the Pines in Arnold. A potluck reception will follow.
