    I am sorry to hear of Doug’s passing away. Although I have not been in touch with Doug for a few years, I will always remember the good conversations we would have about the coating business. Although most of my career was a coating contractor and Doug being on the inspection side,I don’t remember Doug and I ever having angry words. Doug was always a professional and an asset to the coating industry. My condolences to the Wade family.

    I just wanted Doug’s family to know that all of us in the paint shop at Cameron Industries, formerly Natco in Electra, TX were very sad to learn of Doug’s passing, he came to our shop on different jobs during the years and was a very kind to all of us, he had a great since of humor and we always enjoyed his visits, his knowledge was what one part of why we respected him but his humanity to each of us is what endeared Doug to us, we will miss him and his visits, but his memory will always be with us here in Electra, TX, sincerely Rick Browning

    Doug was my “Dad” and I his “Child” for 23 years. He scolded me when I needed to be scolded and gave full compassion when it was needed. He treated my family like his family. Every time he went on a trip he came back with a gift for Cole. He was the sweetest, kindest and most generous man ever. He was super knowledgeable about practically everything. Doug will be truly missed…I miss him already. Rest in Peace my friend…Rest In Peace!
