You were and will always be a good man in my book, no matter how our mamas let us be as scruffy as we wanted..lol
Like ya friend said in a previous read, you were one of the few I’ve known that didn’t need a handshake when you saw someone you knew and cared about...It was a hug.
Miss ya mama and now will have to miss you too. Not forever man, for a good all men know where to find another good man, when it’s time to rest..
Rest In Peace

I have always loved you
And I always will.
You own a piece of my heart.
And you always will.
Once a friend then more
But in the end a friend still.
Many of our friends already
Waiting to greet you.
For your eternal ride among
Stars in a midnight sky..
Forever in our hearts until we
All meet again to fly,
Go roar with two strong lungs,
Like the lion you are
Go soar with your hair in the wind.
On a Heavenly Harley made of silver and gold.
Knowing we all loved you and always will.
Till we all meet again.
Love 4ever. Remembering the good times.

Well Doug you were the coolest guy I have ever had the pleasure to work with . Sweetest man never said a mean word to me, always came to my rescue . Hell we even hung out together some . Listened to some good ole rock and roll . You even took up for me at work I’ll never forget that , you were the only one that did. I wish I could’ve made that gravy for that we always talked about . Always called and told me happy birthday and Mother’s Day . You will truly be missed . Love you forever , This Ga. Peach

Doug and I spent a lot of time together in junior high. Doug lived on a Willow Way and I lived on North Main. We spent most summer nights and a lot of weekends sleeping outside at one of our houses. One of us always took cigarettes from our parents(wonder if they new). After jr high we went our separate ways. No matter when we meet after that it was never a hand shake, it was always a hug. Lots of fond memories of Doug. To the family, please know he was thought of often and always fondly. Love you.

I knew Doug growing up in McGregor. Our moms were friends and we would go to their house often. Doug was always outside playing or messing with something. As we got into upper elementary we went our separate ways. My sympathy to the family and close friends of Doug. -classmate ‘76 Gerri Denker Hackfeld

Grew up with this Dude on N Main/Laurel Lane/Willow Way. We fought like cats n dogs most days - Doug being older - kicked my A most times - but we lived ..... We lived a great childhood - without the bumps n bruises - we might as well stayed indoors. This Guy was a Free Spirit from day one - Lived his life as he Felt. Always with a smile and a laugh - would do for you in a pinch. God needed a Rebel more than this earth could offer. Rest Easy - say Hello to those who went Home before us. Rest Easy My Friend.
