Douglas Mascott

March 19, 1964March 5, 2014

MARBLEHEAD - Doug Mascott, lifelong resident of Marblehead passed away Wednesday, March 5th, after a brief illness. Born March 19th, 1964, he was a loving son of Karl Mascott, and the late Dorothy Mascott, devoted brother of Wendy Silverman, and adoring uncle of Dorothy and Jack Silverman.

Doug graduated from Chapel Hill/Chauncy Hall Preparatory School, and Curry College, and was the owner of DEM Window Washing business.

Doug was sincere, gentle, cheerful, and quick with a laugh. A joy to be around, he was incredibly generous with his time for his family, and many friends.

He donated much of his spare time conducting charitable work for Muscular Dystrophy, in addition to collecting and distributing toys to underprivileged children during Christmas, and supporting local orphanages.

Doug’s eagerness to lend a hand, extend a kind word, and express interest in so many people’s lives will leave an enduring impression. But, his greatest legacy will be the hundreds of local musicians and bands he gave voice to, and introduced to listeners here on Boston's north shore through his Sunday morning radio program “Trax of the Town”, broadcasting from Salem State Radio WMWM for over 25 years. Without Doug, much of this music may have gone unheard.

A memorial service will be held at Temple Emanu-El, 393 Atlantic Ave, Marblehead on Monday at 10 am, with a burial to follow at Waterside Cemetery, West Shore Drive, Marblehead. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited. In lieu of flowers, donations in Doug’s memory to Muscular Dystrophy Association, PO Box 78960, Phoenix, AZ 85062-8960. Arrangements by Stanetsky-Hymanson Memorial Chapel, Salem. For online condolences, please visit

Doug was one of my students at Curry College. He was a very important and appreciated member of the radio station. I remember Doug as a friendly young man, and always interested in learning new things. This is a very sad day for me personally, and I want to extend my deepest sympathies for this loss.

Dear Karl and Wendy, We fondly remember 'little' Doug with his charge account at Tom's ice cream truck. His favorite was 'very treasures'! We were so sad to hear of his death. You are in our thoughts.
