  1. So Sorry for your loss. I used to work with Doug as a journeyman and I like to think a lot of my work ethic came from him (even if I didn’t particularly like my boss or think the job I was doing was very important).
    Doug was like that – A lot of things he didn’t like with our dept but he still did the best job he knew how – right up to the very end when he retired. Nowadays that’s hard to find – someone THAT loyal to his trade.

  2. I will always remember Doug as a kind and loving person who had an easy smile and loved to laugh.

    I had the pleasure of working with Doug over many years and will charish those memories.

    My condolences and heartfelt wishes to his family and friends.
