I have know Doug since 2000. He was a great person to know and be around. He would always find a way to make you laugh, 'always'. He will be greatly missed.

Doug was an awesome person. I never saw him upset; he always had a smile on his face and was very friendly. He would come up to at&t and visit us about once a week. I have known him for about five years. This is a great loss to the community. He will be missed terribly. Please keep Doug's family in your prayers.

The thing I will miss most is his personality. He was one of the friendliest people I have ever known.

I have known Doug since 1997. He was a person whom I believe everyone grew to adore. He was always the one that made me laugh even when I would try to act like I was mad at him. HE WAS LIKE A PART OF MY FAMILY. Words could never explain the pain that myself and others are feeling behind this great lose, Doug, I love you and you will remain forever in my thoughts and heart.
