Douglas C. Leet, MD, passed away peacefully on April 24, 2017, at home with his family by his side. He had been bravely battling colon cancer for over 4 years.

He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Barbara; son, Alexander Leet; daughter, Kathryn Leet Goolsby and husband, Joshua; father, Gerald Leet; brother, Duane Leet and wife, Christine; and sister, Linda Luoma and husband, David. Doug also leaves behind his granddogs, Winston Charles and Lilly.

Dr. Leet was a beloved Urologist at Associated Urologists of North Carolina. Over the years, he was involved in many organizations including the AUA and past president of MMOPA. In his free time, he enjoyed piloting his plane and traveling the world with his wife, gardening, and keeping his yard pristine. His interests knew no end. If he didn't know the answer, he'd research it and then teach you. He could fix anything. He was a true Renaissance man.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, April 27th at 2:00pm at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 125 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC 27603.

A sincere thanks to the team of caregivers who helped Doug fight this battle.
