    A great guy, true friend, and a good human being. He will be missed.


  4. The world is sadder for your passing. Memories of you will always bring a smile to my face as I picture the twinkle in your eyes which guaranteed you were solemnly up to no good. Rest In peace and merriment, my Old Dad.

    Doug had a way of making us feel like we were his very best friends and he seemed to have that effect with everyone. We found Doug to be infectiously upbeat and good-hearted. Of course we shall miss this wonderful person. Very sad.


  6. always knew what to say at the right time and give you the right look I’ll see you again my friend amen


  7. I worked with Doug for over 15 years. He became a super great friend. We went on a ski vacation to Vermont together, what a great time. We worked together on our homes and what a craftsman. He was my buddy and I will miss him more than words can say.
    I’ll see you later Doug, you will always be in my heart.
