We are so saddened !! Met Doug and Kathy at a hotel breakfast in New Orleans. Hit it off immediately with lots of laughs.Few months later, we accepted their invitation to visit for the "Elvis tour" .Got to spend time with their wonderful family ,including the most respectful and well-behaved grandchildren. Also met some of Doug's lodge buddies at the breakfast club.It was easy to see that he was such a Class Act in the way that he lived. Our deepest condolences to Kathy and the family from Brenda and I.......Rest In Peace My Friend !!

Sorry for your loss, telephone company sent me to Memphis from Louisiana in the mid eighties and I had the privilege to work with D.O. It was never a dull moment and I thought about him often over the years , a personality that was impossible to forget.
