Terry McDougall passed away at home peacefully on Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016, in Brunswick, Maine. He grew up in Bath and Brunswick.

Terry was a graduate of Brunswick High School. He spent his early career as a mason working on various projects such as the Delaware Memorial Bridge and the Maine Yankee Power Station in Wiscasset. After high school, he joined the U.S. Air Force and spent most of his time in France. On discharge, he bought a filling station in Bath.

Terry also worked for many years at Bath Iron Works as a buyer in the purchasing department and retired due to health issues. Terry enjoyed spending summers at Birch Point and later his camp in northern Maine.

In later years, Terry enjoyed meeting his friend for coffee at local coffee shops in Topsham.

Terry was one of the first people to receive a Thoratec LVAD — a left ventricular device. An internal assist for the left side of the heart, in 2008. He did well with this for a number of years and other issues came along, but the LVAD kept doing its job.

Terry was predeceased by his mother, father and brother Jim Kinney. He was also predeceased by his son Sean McDougall, who passed away in a terrible marine accident.

Terry is survived by his wife Gail, son Ryan, brother Arthur, daughters Jennifer and Julie, and his grandsons Jett and Dane.

At Terry’s request, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, Terry’s family asks donations be made to his two favorite charities, Saint Jude’s Children’s Hospital and/or The Coastal Humane Society in Terry’s name. A celebration of life will be held in the spring.
