Doug worked as a telecommunications technician. He was employed for many years at Muzicraft and finished up his career working at Simi Valley Unified School District from which he retired from in June of 2018. Doug dedicated his whole life to his family spending time with us was his favorite thing to do. Doug was a genius with computers and enjoyed building his own. He was also a master griller/smoker and has a collection of different BBQ’s. Doug also enjoyed woodworking, and he basically could build or fix anything and do it perfectly. He liked kayaking, hiking with the dogs, model railroading, and Bob Ross painting. Doug enjoyed watching the Lakers and the Dodgers. He often could be found relaxing on the couch with his four legged buddy, Maverick, eating popcorn and enjoying Top Gun. Doug was also very famous for his yearly Christmas Candy making which he shared with many. Doug was a brave warrior for 10 months against pancreatic cancer, he really fought as hard as he could to stay with his family when many would have given up, and for this, we, his family will always be grateful for those extra months he gave to us. Doug was grateful for the many calls, texts, and cards that he received from family and friends checking up on him as he battled on with his treatment. We hope you all know that those calls gave him hope and inspiration to fight for another day. The generosity and support that we have seen from so many people is much appreciated. I know Doug would want me to thank Dr. Kulkarni for his honesty and for helping Doug with his fight, the nurses at the Kaiser Infusion clinic, the Drs. and especially the nurses at Community Memorial Hospital that showed him so much care and compassion throughout his journey. Doug is survived by his wife of 34 years, Penny; sons, Ryan and Nicholas; and daughter, Amanda.

From the moment I was first introduced to Doug, he & Penny welcomed me into their family with open arms. Some of my favorite memories I have with you are the family meals that were always filled with delicious food and laughter. Your baked beans were my absolute favorite, but sitting at the dinner table together as a family and all the memories I have are what I will cherish forever.
You showed me what a respectable father is. You always put your family first and you were always there. Thank you for your unconditional love and providing the father figure role I never had in my life. Doug you truly were a remarkable human being, a loving husband, and a fantastic father!

Love always,
Allison

Many fond memories of family gatherings with Doug’s amazing smoked delights, and Christmas candy. Always loved joining in with him on teasing my mom. He loved his family so much and was very proud of his kids. He will truly be missed by all of us.

One of my favorite memories of Doug was when I would visit my Cousin Penny we would talk and go down memory lane , i would look over at Doug & he would have this perplexing look on his face, i would ask what ya thinking, he would state you Talk SOOOO Fast how can anybody understand you, Penny would laugh & state I can I am used to it. Over the years I believe Doug could understand as well. Truly a wonderful man, he will be missed.
Love to you all,
Caren
