I was sorry to hear of Doug's passing. Thoughts and prayers to his family at this difficult time. Doug was one of my boss'es in the pipe shop for many years, we had some good times in the work force while he was our boss, and he was a good boss who stood up for his men. He had a great sense of humor! We has some interesting conversation!! God knows! RIP

I remember the first time I met Doug. It was December 2, 2005. He was helping build his mother's new house. Russ had phoned him in the morning and asked him to marry us right away. Doug said, "Sure, come on over to my mom's house". I ran to the store and bought a blouse and Russ and Alexandra and I arrived a few hours later. We stood in the kitchen of Doug's mom's house and he married us. We signed our marriage papers on the dining room table, thanked Doug profusely, and then went back to work at Russ' restaurant. Doug would come and visit Russ regularly in the restaurant to talk with Russ. I remember when he was deciding what kind of treatment to take for his cancer. After his operation he would come and visit Russ regularly. It was always a pleasant time when he was visiting in the restaurant. I have very fond memories of Doug. He was stalwart, loyal, and had integrity. He died loyal to Jehovah....the only thing that counts....he kept his integrity.....the only thing he could take with him to the grave. Doug was a great example of a great man.
