From Doug’s obituary: “It is with shock and terrible sadness that we share the unexpected death of Douglas “Doug” Eric Tillman, 57, on Monday, July 5, 2021 due to a cardiac event. The only son of Carol and Raymond Tillman, Doug was born on October 29, 1963 in Englewood, NJ. A graduate of Ardsley High School ‘81 and Dartmouth College ‘85, Doug was a Petty Officer Second Class in the US Navy from 1991-1996. It was during his stint in the Navy that he discovered a love of programming which led him to his successful career in computer programming at Grainger, Textura, and lastly as Director of DevOps and PMO for the Construction and Engineering Global Business Unit at Oracle, based in Deerfield, IL.
Doug and his charismatic energy will be deeply missed. He had an insatiable curiosity, deep intellect and a love of life. He was passionate about his dogs Sassy and Shiloh, books, travel, piano, cooking, great wine and spirits, and languages including Hebrew, Spanish, Russian and Arabic. He was always up for an adventure.”
