He was beloved by his employers and his coworkers. Doug was also instrumental in the early success of St. Mary's Whistle Stop, which was a family business.
Family was everything to him. Doug's 10-year-old godson and nephew recently wrote this in a composition for school: "When Uncle Doug comes over for a holiday, he brings joy with him. He has amazing stories of his past with his family and friends. He loves all his relatives so much."
Those who knew Doug well describe him as humble, generous, funny, kind, dependable -- these are traits we all aspire to, but Doug personified them. He lived his Faith every day as a loving husband and father, and will be missed beyond words by his family and friends. Missed, but never forgotten.
