I was getting concerned after not hearing from Doug for many weeks. I was shocked and deeply saddened to find this obituary. I always enjoyed our conversations and will truly miss him. My sincere condolences to his family. It was always very apparent by the way he spoke of his family, that they were always first in his heart.
