Dr. Douglas Masi of Greenwich, passed away peacefully on December 4, 2021 in Greenwich, CT at the age of 67.
Doug was in Greenwich, CT to Joseph E Masi Sr. and Lillian R. Masi. He was a lifelong Greenwich resident and GHS graduate, class of 1973.
Doug graduated from Santa Barbara City College in June 1977. He went on to Chiropractic school and graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in December of 1980 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. In addition to teaching at Northwestern, he participated in continuing education through the Motion Palpation Institute. “Doctor Doug” (as many would call him) practiced in Greenwich for many years.
His favorite things to do were to spend time with family and friends skiing and boating. As they say, “friends are the family you choose” and that couldn’t be truer for Doug. It wasn’t unusual for Doug to end a phone call with a friend with “Love you!”
Passionate about and involved in the preservation of Greenwich waters, he was a charter member of the Town of Greenwich Boater User Group. Doug was an active member of the Greenwich Boat & Yacht Club. Doug organized GBYC’s Annual Seafood Night which was always a hit with club members. Doug will be remembered for his generosity of spirit and being the life of the party.
In addition to his parents, Doug was predeceased by his brother Joseph E. Masi, Jr. He is survived by his Life Partner, Marianne Nowak Crabtree, his daughter Lauren McDougall-Masi and brother Charles (Mary Lynn) Masi, as well as Scott Crabtree, Jr. who was like a son to Doug.
A private celebration of Doug’s life will take place in Greenwich, CT in 2022.
In lieu of flowers, Doug’s request was a tribute donation to be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memorial Giving; 501 St. Jude Place; Memphis, TN 38105. Please use donor ID# 22716087.
