Doug passed away May 12, 2017 after a brief illness. Born on January 17, 1957 in Grosse Pointe to the late Melvin and Bernadette Hiller, Doug attended De La Salle Collegiate High School (Class of 1975). After owning his own business, Doug entered into the electrical trade in 1990, enjoying a long and successful career that ultimately lead to his role as Field Superintendent at Motor City Electric Company. He enjoyed nothing more than spending his free time up north, especially at his hunting camp in the eastern Upper Peninsula.
Doug was the proud father of his three sons, Anthony Douglas, Matthew John, and Timothy Robert – raising them with his best friend and former wife, Linda Hiller. He is survived by his siblings David (Janice), Kathleen (Kirk) Starkey, Patricia (Jon Belanger), and Donald (Teresa). He was predeceased by his brother, Daniel, in 2006. Doug was the adored uncle of eight nieces and nephews and fifteen great-nieces and nephews. He will also be greatly missed by extended family, coworkers, and close friends whom he loved dearly.
