I met Doug 50 years ago when I report to my first submarine. I worked for him at four different commands. Besides being my boss, he was a great teacher, mentor and friend. Thank you for your guidance and words of wisdom. You are sorely missed. Rest in peace my friend.

I met Doug at our Submarine Veterans Drum Base meetings. We found out we had the same jobs and were on the same boat, at different times. But, we were able to share some fond memories of those times. He added a great deal to our meetings and I will miss him being there. I only knew him a couple of years, but he enriched my life just by knowing him. Rest your oars, my friend, level bubble.

To his precious family, we are so sorry for your Loss. We had great respect for Doug. The last time they came to visit Ralph and Peggy, we met up a seafood restaurant in Darien. My husband and Doug talked military. He was fun to be with. His Love for Mary and family was very clear. Rip Doug, until we meet in Heaven.

Grandpa will be missed! He was always there for us growing up and cared deeply about the family. He made sure everyone had what they needed. Grandpa made sure we knew it was important to be able to provide for our families and the importance of working hard and being frugal. I know Hanna and I made him proud!! :) Rest In Peace Grandpa. We love you!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Many fond memories of Uncle Doug's many jokes and laughter over the years but also the serious side that he had was also very enlightening. May God give you peace and comfort now and in the days to come.
RIP Uncle Doug & breathe easy now...We love you.
