Please share a memory of Douglas to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Douglas Noel Konneker, 67, of Huntington Beach, CA, passed away unexpectedly on October 24, 2022. Doug was born on December 25, 1954 to Stanley and Julia (Barrick) Konneker in his much-loved hometown of Carlinville, Illinois. After Doug graduated from Carlinville High School in 1972, he went on to study at the University of Illinois. After graduating in 1976 with a bachelors degree in accounting, he began his career in Springfield, Illinois. Not long after Doug spread his wings and adventured west to California where he began a lifelong career in IT security and worked at Hughes Aircraft as an IT Security Engineer. In 1984 Doug met his former wife, Pamela, on a blind date. The couple went on to have two dearly loved children, Jordan and Ariel. After retirement in 2019, Doug enjoyed his favorite pastimes of screenwriting, researching plots for film scripts, and reading. He loved spending time with his son and daughter and reminiscing over — another hobby of his — photography from his children’s years growing up. Douglas was preceded in death by his parents, Stanley and Julia, as well as two of his older siblings, Judith "Judy" Ann Hilst and Stanley Barrick "Barry" Konneker. He is survived by his children, and his siblings, Carolyn Hallbauer of Carlinville, Martha Jean McCormack of Gillespie, Illinois, and Gregory (Marion) Konneker of Winchester, England, and 15 nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at Davis-Anderson Funeral Home, Carlinville on Monday, December 19, 2022, at 11 a.m. Interment will be at Mayfield Memorial Park Cemetery in Carlinville. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a favorite animal rescue organization or the local 4-H chapter as Doug had a soft spot in his heart for furry creatures since his upbringing on his family’s farm in Carlinville.
