Sept. 5, 1941 – July 31, 2014

Robert Ted Douillard, 72, passed away July 31, 2014, at his Placerville home with his family by his side.
Bob, or “Butch,” was born September 5, 1941 in Inglewood, Calif. to the late Theodore E. and Minnie C. Douillard. He graduated from Morningside High School in Inglewood in 1959, and earned his Associate Degree from East Los Angeles Community College in 1976.
Bob served in the United States Army and was a proud Vietnam Veteran. As a Los Angeles County Marshal, he received accolades for his professionalism and dedication during his 20+ year career, having worked on many high-profile cases in the field and in the courtroom.
Bob loved animals (especially his dogs Skipper, Simon, Rusty, Max and Woody), the open road, tinkering in his garage, playing cards (he was a champ at gin rummy), finding a bargain, peanut butter cookies and BBQ ribs. His favorite cooking method was “slow and low.”
Bob had a green thumb and a shortened finger. As a boy, he accidentally stuck his finger in a meat grinder. This became a great conversation starter later in life. As an adult, he tended his yard and garden, growing sago palms, hydrangea and fresh vegetables. His yard was always the nicest one on the block.
Bob enjoyed spending time with his family. The nicknames he created for his nieces and nephews brought smiles and laughter, as did his request for those same kids to address him as “Sir Bob.” His granddaughter Madalyn was the light of his life.
Bob’s love for travel and the outdoors began as a boy, when he hiked the John Muir Trail while pursuing his Eagle Scout. Though his travels were international, he preferred road trips and camping. Bob spent more than a decade as a RV “full-timer” with his co-pilot and beloved bride Denise. Together they explored North America’s beaten paths and roads less traveled, from Coast to Coast. One of Bob’s favorite spots remained the beautiful snow-capped Sierras.
Bob is survived by his loving wife of 26 years, Denise M. Douillard; three daughters, Jill C. (Paul) Scott, Jennifer L. Douillard, and Amy M. Vandenberg; granddaughter, Madalyn Y. Vandenberg; and sister, Nancy J. Tallaksen.
A celebration of Bob’s life will be held by his family and friends in early September.
