I am sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. I worked at Avsco with Doug for 10 years. We became friends and even after I left Avsco we would meet at Price Chopper and visit for a while. I haven’t seen Doug for quite awhile and I will miss running into him at the store.
Sincerely Alvin Miller.

My heartfelt condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of working with Doug in the 80’s at Gates Rubber! Such a kind caring man!

Aunt Linda, Kathy Ann, Kenny and families,
Sending love and hugs during this difficult time.  I remember Uncle Doug as always being such a happy man.  He could make anyone laugh.  I always enjoyed being with him even though it wasn’t often with the distance we lived apart. He called me out of the blue a few months ago and it really made my day just having him check in to see how everyone was doing out here in Idaho.  His visits to see my mom always made her so happy.  He was one of the few that could tease her and get away with it.
Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.  Love Patty

We have been your neighbor 20 good years. Our visits were enjoyable. We looked out for one another through the storms. You were a great neighbor, always a good morning and a smile when we met at the mailbox. You will be missed. Condolences to your wife and family.

Doug was an amazingly good guy. He was always up for a game of catch at family get-togethers. As a little guy, I know that between him and Uncle Charlie, if you didn’t watch they could burn you pretty good. I know you will be missed.

Linda and kids, sorry for your loss. Doug was a very special person. Lots of precious memories we all share! Sorry we won’t be able to be with you all at this time,but our prayers are with you. Hugs to all. Love, cousins Ernie and Pat
