Doug will be missed by the many people who loved him. He was more than just a nephew, he was a very dear friend who had an infectous laugh and a beautiful smile. Hes in Heaven now enjoying the peace and love with all his family. My prayers and sympathy to Pat and his girls and granddaughters. ❤ forever.

I worked with Doug at Brinks from 1978 to 1985. He was a good mentor and a good friend to me during this time.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

He was my cousin. Older than I but I work downtown and every time I see a Brinks truck I would look to see if it was him.. If it was I would wave and he gave me a huge smile.
