Doug Young, the voice of many Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters, including Doggie Daddy, passed away on January 7, 2018 at the age of 98.

Here is an article on the blog "Yowp" on how Young got the voice of Doggie Daddy.

It's sad we are loosing more famous people from the golden age of animation. But of course it's because of their age, or their sickness they get.

When it comes to Hanna-Barbera, pre-1960, very few people are left. There is Gerard Baldwin, who animated at H-B before going to work for Jay Ward, Sam Clayberger, who painted the backgrounds on at least one Huck cartoon, and voice actor Elliot Field (the original Blabber). Ken Spears arrived at the studio in 1959 to edit sound into film (I don't know when Joe Ruby got there but it was around the same time).
In 1960, writer Tony Benedict and Yakky Doodle's permanent voice, Jimmy Weldon, were signed by the studio.
There could be inkers and painters as well from the first few years as well, but I can't be certain.
