I had the pleasure of working with Doug for many years. Doug was a Family man & a hard worker always working and talking about his family. He was very passionate about his work & loved his job and interacting with people and would always smile even if having a bad day. My condolences to his family he was taken far too soon. Rest In Peace Doug.

I’ve worked with Doug and he was always there for me and always giving me the best advice about work and life and family. He spoke a lot about his kids and family and all the fun things he’s done in the past. A very humble guy I know he touched a lot of lives. He is the type of person once you have met him you will never forget him. From time to time We would run into each other and we would just pick up were we left off. Amazing person and he will truly be missed. To his family I’m very sorry for your loss

I have worked with Doug for many years and He was such a ray of sunshine! He always made me smile and laugh. He would often talk, with excitement and joy, about his home and family. I will so miss seeing him when I walk into the clubhouse. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
