Dear Miss Betty, I just found out about Doug's passing. I am sorry for your loss and I will always remember the smile he had even when I would make him so mad at me when I worked with him at Caprock Energy with lynn Homsey. My prayers to you and all your family.

To Wagner Family, I just received news on Doug's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed having Doug as a friend. We played in several Oxy Golf Tournaments together. I met Doug through work several years ago, he used to break out golf clubs at work and have us try them out. I am honored to have known Doug.
