Cudd, Douglas Bruce  
Dad passed suddenly but peacefully on July 17, 2015. Born in Monmouth, Illinois, to Bruce and Shirley Faith (Sloan) Cudd on June 1, 1928, Douglas Bruce was the oldest of four children (sisters Doris and Susan and brother George). Doug attended school in Bettendorf, Iowa (a suburb of Davenport). Before graduation, Doug wanted to enlist in the Navy. His mother gave her permission only if he promised to finish school upon his return. He served on the USS EPCE(R) 852 (later named Brattleboro) out of New Jersey in 1945. After his honorary discharge, he kept his promise and graduated from Davenport High in 1947. He then moved to Alaska to spend a couple of years with his uncle Hardy Sloan building a wilderness cabin as well as commercial trapping and fishing from an 18-foot open boat. In 1950, Doug attended Whitman College in Walla Walla for a couple of terms (earning all P's!), then left to work with a surveying team for the Montana Power Company. He traveled the northwest as they established substations and power lines in Washington, Oregon and Montana. While in Anaconda, Montana, he met the love of his life, Dorothy "Carole" McArdle. They ran off to be married in Idaho (and back to be married by the family priest in Montana), then made their way to Kennewick, Washington, where they welcomed their first child. They had plans to travel to California for a job opportunity but stopped in Port Angeles to visit his parents. Plans changed, and they settled in Port Angeles to help with the family dry-cleaning business known as Bruce Cleaners where "We Keep the Spots." The family grew, and Doug became the father and hero to a total of five very active little girls. Doug and Carole celebrated 53 years of marriage before her passing. Doug was a lifetime member of the Elks, enjoyed years of dancing with "Club 50," fishing, bowling, golfing and coffee meetups with his buddies, along with every possible activity that five children bring. He loved his friends, family and telling jokes (till the very end). Doug is survived by his five daughters, Penny Ervin, Sandy Cudd, Terry (Rick) Hoch, Deborah (Arnel) Alcafaras and Colleen Cudd; five grandchildren, Carrie (Kyle) Priest, James (Amanda) Hoch, Carolyn (Sunny Andreasen) Alcafaras, Keith (Tiffany Li) Green and Dylan Alcafaras; and 10 great-grandchildren. Doug was preceded in death by his parents, Bruce and Shirley Cudd; his wife, Carole; and their infant son, John Patrick. A celebration of life will be held Thursday, July 30, 2015, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elks Naval Lodge, 131 East First Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362. Donations may be made to the Elks Naval Lodge No. 353 BPOE or the charity of your choice.
