Warren “Doug” Lincoln

December 3, 1949
October 15, 2013

Warren “Doug” Lincoln of Salado, TX, passed away on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, having valiantly battled cancer for over six years. 

He is survived by his loving family, wife Susan of 22 years, their four children, Aaron, Shawn, Ashley, Alex, and two grandchildren.  He is also survived by his brother, Don Lincoln of Lago Vista, TX.  

Doug was born in Dallas, TX, December 3, 1949.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Roy E. Lincoln and Margaret A. (Robinson) Lincoln, both of Dallas.

In 1968, Doug graduated from South Oak Cliff high school in Dallas and enlisted in the Marine Corps immediately afterward.  For the last six months of his enlistment, he was a permanent member of the honor guard at Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro, CA, conducting funerals for Marines who were killed in Vietnam.  Doug considered this a “spiritual” bookmark in his life.  He learned a great deal about self-discipline and leadership as a Marine.  These experiences were to be used in many other areas of his life.

In 1981, Doug started his own computer consulting business.  For the next 26 years, he worked as a free-lance software developer.  At age 56, he re-enrolled in college and completed his MBA.  In 2010, he completed his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification and returned to work at the V. A. Austin Information Technology Center where he and his brother were employed.
