Honolulu, Hawaii 2021-06-24 00:52:17 –
Cpl. Air traffic control communication engineer Douglas A. Mott died at the Queen’s Medical Center on June 8 after being injured after colliding with a vehicle nine days ago.
“I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to Mott’s family and friends during this difficult time,” the Marines said in a statement on Monday. “We share their grief as we mourn the loss of the Marines’ brothers.”
Honolulu Police reported that Mott was walking on a marked pedestrian crossing when a passenger car driven by a 52-year-old man attacked him in the Kaimuki district of Honolulu shortly after midnight on May 30. He was taken to the hospital in crisis.
“It didn’t look like speed and narcotics were the factors,” a police report said. “Alcohol seems to have been a factor for both drivers and pedestrians.”
The case is still under investigation.
The Honolulu Medical Inspector’s Office notified the police station’s Vehicle Murder Division on June 8 that Mott had died.
According to the Marine Corps biography, Mott joined the Marine Corps in September 2017 and was promoted to Corporal in August 2020. Marine Corps Base Hawaii was his only mission station and he had never deployed it.
Mott received the National Defense Service Medal and the Marine Corps Good Conduct Strip.
He has survived by his parents Nancy and Douglas Mott, and his younger brother Daniel, according to a brief obituary posted online by Marinello Funeral Home in Column, New York.
The funeral mass is scheduled for June 21st at St. Margaret in the Scottish Church in Selden, NY.
