I am saddened to learn of your loss. I remember helping Mack shell his butter beans one summer many years ago when I lived in Richmond. Remembering you and yours in prayer for peace and comfort at this difficult time.

Doug and I worked at the Bellwood Printing Plant Reynolds Metals for a good long time. We went to school at U R together. We worked on school work together and even graduated the same day! I never had a better or more dependable friend. Have not seen him in years but know I am a better person for having known him and will miss him always!

I’m so sorry for your loss, Patsy, Marianne, Beth, Jonathan and your extended family. There will definitely be a void in Roxshire without Doug walking every day. He always waved and smiled or stopped and chatted. I often thought of him as the “mayor” of Roxshire as he walked and greeted neighbors.
