I'm saddened to hear about Doug. I will always remember the Dausses when they lived in Anaheim back in the 70's and always had there door open for me. Doug was always a special person.

God rest your beautiful soul "Dougie"!! We had such fun together when we stayed at your house. You loved my son(Steven) and especially loved to tease him until he cried!! Of course that's when you were just a little guy yourself. And from the other post here and from what I've heard from the other family members you grew into a wonderful man as I knew you would. Rest peaceful in His loving arms.

I will always remember our dinners at Sundowners, as we fellowshipped with our Men's Bible Study Group. His faith helped strengthen my own. I miss him, but I know he is with the Lord.

I remember Doug from the old 1st Church of the Nazarene in San Bernardino where my Dad was Pastor. He was quiet yet mischievous. He loved working with the kids, maybe because he was like a big kid himself. Praying for the family but thankful he is in the arms of Jesus.

Dave and I will always hold Doug close to our hearts. As a student at BCS he was tops in my book. I'm sure (?) Doug didn't do this after winning a football game: stand up in the bus and get it rocking so I had to threaten to pull the bus over or "sit down"! Nor would he have been one of those guys who would have ducked in the back seat of my old 57 Cadillac and yell "surprise" when I parked at Bakers for lunch.

I met Doug when I was in high school at Bloomington Christian. Doug was always so happy and encouraging. He was a great example and role model to all us younger kids, as he would say. Doug was everybody's "big"brother". Whenever I think of Doug I immediately think of a song by Chicago called "You're the Inspiration". It is running through my head as I right this. We used to sing it with all our friends as loud as we could. Doug was always there for me when I felt down, always with a Bible verse that spoke exactly to what I was feeling and going through. Always with a word of encouragement a big giant Doug Hug and a silly joke to make me laugh! Doug's smile was irresistable and contagious. You couldn't stay down long with him around. I love you big brother, you are greatly missed. Thank you for the inspiration you have been to me and so many others!

Doug was an inspiration to me as a pastor. He never let his disease get him down and he reached out to people who were in need. I will always remember baptizing Doug for his healing. His healing turned out to be eternal, but his faith was the kind that could move mountains.

Doug was one of the first of my Bowling Family I met in the late 70's early 80's. We bowled in the Jr. Bowling program at San Hi Lanes and continued to bowl together into adult hood. I remember the tournaments and most of all the late night Denny trips after bowling. We would go in a big group and would have so much fun laughing and joking around. Doug was quiet but could always provide us with laughs. Doug was more than just a friend from bowling. He was part of a group of friends that make up my bowling family. He will be greatly missed but always in our hearts.

I didn't know Doug before he contracted Huntington's Disease. But when I met him I found that he was so very likable, a great family man and an avid sports fan , especially for his beloved Redskins. More than anyrhing Doug was a man of God. I have great memories of him at men's bible study and at church on Sundays. Always a smile on his face and a kind word. He will be greatly missed.
