Peter George Doumit left this life Nov. 10, 2018. He passed away at home in Moses Lake, Wash., in peace, surrounded by those who loved him. Coach Doumit was 68 years old.
Pete was born March 26, 1950, in Longview, to Eli and Patricia Doumit. He was raised on a cattle ranch outside of Cathlamet and graduated from Wahkiakum High School in 1968. Pete attended Washington State University where he was a member of FarmHouse fraternity, earned a degree in education with the class of 1972. He played for, and coached within, the Cougar baseball program. More importantly, he met his lifelong love, Faith Limbocker of Bellevue.
Pete and Faith were married in 1973 and for the next 45 years created a home built on love, laughter, and respect. In addition to his four children and 14 grandchildren, Pete’s door was always open to friends, students, players, and extended family. Those relationships were built and maintained through teaching and coaching positions in Onalaska, McMinnville, Ore., Rainier, East Wenatchee, and Moses Lake. Pete believed that an educator should strive to develop the entirety of an individual, so as to best prepare that person for life ahead.
He was a member of the Moses Lake High School, Big Bend Community College, and Washington State Baseball Coaches Association Halls of Fame.
