I didn't know Doug well, but I met him soon after I started working in the Supply Chain about three years ago. I was tasked to head up our squadron picnic which included gathering volunteers and assigning tasks. Doug was one of the volunteers for this event and it struck me how he took on the jobs that no one wanted to do. He had such a cheerful attitude about it too. Not only did he have my deep appreciation, but also my respect. To lead is to serve and it was apparent that he was a true servant. It truly saddens me he has left us. My deepest condolences and prayers are sent to his family and friends.

I loved Douglas. He was the first son to our son Doug and first grandson. This picture is of the first day of his life. What a happy day that was. Douglass was a loving caring person. God gifted him with wisdom. All his brothers looked up to him and they are all very close. He was always willing to help out with anything. Once he came down to Lawton with all his brothers and roofed a house for me and would not except any pay. While we were roofing the house him and his brothers would holler down to the girls walking down the street. They would stop and come over and talk to them.
When ever he would come into a room the room would light up because he was such a joy to be around. I will really miss Douglas and the talks we had. Love you Douglas. PaPa

I have so many great memories with Douglas! Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday, I got to hang out with him. One summer we went to frontier city, he was hoping to meet girls and get their numbers but I guess they thought he and I were together lol. We always said we should make shirts that's said "he's my cousin" "she's my cousin". As we got older life happened and we didn't get to see each other as often. But it was always a great time with Douglas around! I Love You!

I’ve known Doug just over 4 years at work. He became like a brother to me. We were such a good team! He was the “Go to Guy” if anyone needed anything extra done. He would volunteer for almost anything. His outgoing spirit and shenanigans ALWAYS kept things fun in the office. He had the biggest heart too! Doug was such a leader and he didn’t even know it, capable of rallying us all together to do almost anything. The few times my kids visited work, they still remember Doug. Doug would call himself “Uncle Doug” and disappear with my son on adventures looking at airplanes and filling his belly with whatever candy and pop he wanted. Then Doug would just laugh as he returned my son to me all sugared up! My favorite thing about Doug, was that he was always himself, he didn’t care too much about what anyone thought. He was always just Doug, and that was the best part! We will miss you friend!! Praying for all his family and friends during this hard time as I know he was loved and cherished by many!

Doug was a great brother. I called him once while driving home to borrow a shovel when my dog passed away. He had the grave dug for me before I even got home. We've had our differences over the years, but I love him and miss him enormously. He was extremely outgoing and friendly and had so many wonderful qualities.

I worked across from Doug for the last two years and to say he left a mark on my life is an understatement. They say coworkers become like family and in many ways this was true for our relationship. We bickered like brother and sister but also were there to listen to each other on the bad days, and cheer each other on for the good days. He was such a fun spirited, and life of the party type of person, this was obvious. But the qualities that I truly cherish were his big heart and willingness to step up for others. He always made people feel included, he had an eye for the people who may have felt left out. He rallied people together for all of our community service efforts, and was always very generous. He remembered details, he wouldn’t just ask “how was your weekend?” He would remember what you had told him and ask specifically about that event. I don’t think he knew what an impact he had on all of us here at work, we loved him so much. He told me once his dream job was to be a captain of a boat somewhere tropical, and that is just how I want to imagine him now, on the back of his boat, feet dangling in the water and living the dream. He will be greatly missed, and loved by so many. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

My heart breaks for you all!! While it has been many years since I’ve talked to Dougie he has always been near in heart. Our family is sending our deepest condolences and immense amounts of comforting prayers to you all at this time. I will always cherish our childhood friendship and growing in to young adults together. When I brought my daughter home from the hospital he refused to hold her. I made him any way. It was awkward but, it built a bond they shared until we moved away. He is deeply missed already.

Doug was ALWAYS cheerful at work, and each time I saw him or passed him in the hall, he'd make me smile!! I enjoyed teasing him about his hair when it'd get long or for wearing a cap at work. Simple jokes were always shared between us. :-) Those simple moments will be missed. I am truly sorry for your loss, and pray the Lord brings you all peace and comfort in time. Deepest Regards, Janetta Poulson
