My deepest sympathy. I knew Doug from Adrian High School. We played trombone together in the Band! He was an amazing guy back then, and everyone who knew him loved him. He was great in sports and had such a wonderful leadership ability.
Although our paths have not crossed but maybe once in the last 40 yrs, I have thought of our band friends over that time!
God bless you on your journey moving forward in life without him.

Doug was a great person. We worked together for many years and spent many a minute talking sports and life experiences. He would always stop me in passing and ask me how I was doing and genuinely listened. He will be greatly missed by many.

I had the pleasure to work with Doug back in the late 80's. We traveled together with our simulation ride visiting different cities in the south. Doug was perfect for our sports loving group and his knowledge was deep. He had such a joy for life and was one of the friendliest and nicest persons I have known. I am saddened that he has left his loved ones way too soon. The world is less without him, rest in peace brother.

Doug and I worked together at CMI for many years. He was always smiling and was friends with everyone he would meet. He will be missed dearly. I was lucky to have known him.
