Vernon Walter Doutt Jr., 81, of Export, passed away Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at his residence in Export. Vernon was born May 5, 1941, in Wilkinsburg, the son of the late Josephine (Wagner) and Vernon Doutt Sr. Vernon graduated from Vandergrift High School with the Class of 1959 and went on to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree from Grove City College in mechanical engineering. He was employed by Alcoa and Dupont, and then retired after 38 years at Westinghouse Electric Nuclear Service Division. Vernon was an Eagle Scout and earned the Order of the Arrow. He had many interests, including classic cars, traveling (family cruises, beach weeks and Disney trips), working on his computer and investments, but his two lifelong passions were swimming and golfing. They started at a young age when, during his high school years, he was a caddy and lifeguard at the Apollo Elks. They continued in his retirement years as he swam a mile several times a week at the YMCA and got in as many rounds of golf as he could each season at the Elks. Vernon is survived by his wife, Alice Jane Doutt, of Export; his two daughters, Valerie (Doutt) and Julian Chandler, of Leesburg, and Virginia "Brenda" (Doutt) and Eugene Pish, of Bloomington, Ill.; and grandchildren, Ashton Chandler, Jordan Chandler, Melissa Pish and Kyle Pish. The family would like to thank the Allegheny Health Network Hospice Care case manager, Thomas RN and his team for all their help, support and comfort. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to Edward W and Sara K. Naegele Scholarship Award, Grove City College Advancement Office, 100 Campus Drive, Grove City, PA 16127, or Apollo Elks, 151 Elks Lodge Road, Apollo, PA 15613. Respecting Vernon's wishes, there will be no visitation. Arrangements are by WOLFE-VON GEIS FUNERAL HOME. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
