Today is Thanksgiving-A day to give thanks.
I accidentally or maybe not??God intervention? Knowingness? Well, when you’ve shared your life with someone for (at the time) at least half your life—there is a connection/a sense, that will always be...I am very sad to have read about your passing Doug. Way too soon! My heart hurts for all the family...brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces & children whom hearts are hurting. My heartfelt condolences to You! Hugs.
So, many fond and happy memories from days gone, so many. I am thankful. I am grateful for life we created—at the time we were a team and at the core family was #1. As it remained.
At the time we were partners in life. You were my friend and I yours.
It was hard at times- being married to a law enforcement officer— but it was what you loved & it was your passion , as much as your family was and is!
You were good at both!
It made you happy —it made me happy.
When our life’s moved into a new direction (at the time) so painful...but looking back & to the present was the right thing to do—-you became a father to two beautiful children & I a mother to two beautiful children. We each got to grow in a deeper kind of way. I give thanks to your knowingness.
A few years back—serendipity—crossed our paths—if only for a moment. It was good to see you and have a catch-up conversation. I am grateful for that moment.
You meant a lot to so many & you did make a positive difference in your lifetime and in the world!
There will always be a piece of my heart honoring your kind and gentle soul—Your presence will be missed—but the love you shared will not!
Love you Doug—I am thankful for all the memories we shared. God speed...hugs to all the family up there where you are! Let them know they all made a difference in my life ! Give yourself a hug too as well!!

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Doug. In law enforcement, character and commitment are of the utmost importance. I respected Doug as much as anyone, in my entire career, for his character and commitment. I had the pleasure to work with Doug at JCSO. When I started at JCSO in February of 1988, Doug was one of my Field Training Officers, along with Tim Mossbrucker. When I was fortunate enough to be selected to the SWAT Team, Doug was the Assistant Team Leader. I worked with Doug when JCSO had a drug interdiction team. Throughout the years, when Doug was on scene of a major incident, he made everyone better. Doug was intense and aggressive, and he had a heart of gold. He always wanted justice for the victims. I could go on and on........ I salute you, Doug. You made an impact.

Dear Doug,
I am writing this in letter form in order to make it easier on and for me. I am sure that you are able to read it because of where and with Whom you are. I want you to know that you are and that you will be greatly missed by all who truly knew you and your kind and loving nature. Doug, I will also say that you are gone way too soon, and that is something I just do not understand in this life, but one day I am sure I will. Doug, even though I did not grow up with you, my heart breaks because you are one of my three brothers-in-law, and I have indeed known you for some 46 years, and you have been such a wonderful friend as well. I will miss your smile, your joking, and the Holiday visits we all had together. You, my friend, were truly one of a kind. I am sure that I will one day get past this death, but Doug my friend, I will never get over missing you. So say hello to your Mom and Dad, and to Karen and Pam, and remember that you and they are greatly missed, in JESUS Name.

I am so glad we kept in touch over the years. You were a great friend and an incredible coworker. I'll never forget the weekend trip we all took to Fir, CO. You called your brother at every stop because we wouldn't tell you exactly where we were going! You later said you were going to work at "practicing serendipity!" I know you are free from pain and at peace. You will be missed my friend.

Uncle Doug, you will always be stitched in the fabric of the person I am, and the family I came from. Growing up with a single father our greatest joys were the holidays spent in Colorado with our family. I have so many memories of snowy Christmas days, magical Santa mornings, Tossing the football with your bro’s on Thanksgivings. Listening to you and your brothers and sisters fellowship, it showed me what family is all about. You and your siblings have a bond I’ve never seen before, and it has been a true joy to be apart of the scene. I will miss our family Poker games (not many kids started playing poker by the 4th grade), Unfortunately the seats at our poker table are becoming less and less. I’ll also always miss our family banters about sports, politics, and wherever the night led us.... But you as a person are very special. You are principled beyond most, and when you love someone you love blindly- like a child, But you are also Stoic to a fault- in that you never wanted to burden anyone. These are the thoughts and memories I have of you. And I want you to know - I love you and you deserve to be honored because you are a GOOD man. Love you Uncle Doug - Brook

My sweet baby brother I have 1 million memories from the many Adventures we had as children, Hunting frogs catching crawdads hiding under seats in that station wagon to get into drive-in movies.Running back to mom and dad at a campground in Oregon to save your older brother from getting his butt kicked by a biker gang! The camaraderie love you me and Bruce traveling to Las Vegas once a year as the three amigos after mom died! The Many Thanksgivings And Christmases you Hosted Making them so magical! The Manny holidays do you spent with us in Tulsa, Having your sweet soul there always made them more special! I was so proud to be your big brother You always made me feel more special than I ever deserved. You were a marvelous poker player damn good fisherman fairly decent dancer and a hell of a cop! What you went through in the last two months required and Immense amount of courage way beyond the pale! My only wish is that I could’ve been there with you when you took the elevator up to heaven! There is a big Old Hole Right through the center of my being and the only thing that will heal it Is seeing you on the other side! Doug love you from Here to eternity. Love your big brother Gregor

Uncle Doug,
I was lucky enough to marry into your family and blessed enough to be welcomed with open arms by each and every one of you. You always had a way of making me feel so welcome, from having my Oklahoma family up for thanksgiving, to teaching and helping me play poker, welcoming my best friend in like family while her husband was deployed, giving advice on travel, teaching us all your dancing moves, and sharing your love ALWAYS!!
We will miss you so much!
Lailee is so thankful for that call, not but a few weeks ago, where she got to sing for you, she wouldn’t do it in front of us, but she loved singing for you!
You loved big and your love will continue to live on in all of us. Thank you for every memory, for serving your entire career and beyond, but most of all, thank you for your love and encouragement!
Enjoy that peace and comfort in the Fathers arms! Love you Uncle Doug!

Thank you for so many wonderful memories of family trips, Holidays, playing games, Family poker nights, teaching me to drive a stick, and all the lessons learned( honor, integrity, doing the right thing, Responsibility,, and so much more). I regret letting life get busy and not getting down to see you, but I cherish the long phone talks we had, the joy in your voice, and just hearing from you! You were so many things to so many people but to me you were my dad, and I thank you for that! I love you and always will! You’ll always be in my heart and my thoughts!

You son!
