Doug was a good friend, great sense of humor, was my very first customer in business. Will be missed.

We are so very sorry for your loss! Feelings of despair can be overwhelming at this time. We pray that “the Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) will give you peace of mind and comfort in your hearts. Acts 24:15 says that “there is going to be a resurrection” and Job 14:14, 15 shows that God has a longing to resurrect his friends! We are so grateful that our loving God looks forward, as much as we do, to reuniting us with our loved ones.

We have known Doug for many years. Sorry we could not attend the service since we were out of town. Our condolences to the family.

I am so saddened to learn of Doug's heart attack and passing. He was always friendly and helpful to me, especially since we shared similar senses of humor. Although lately we did not see much of each other, when we did we picked up where we left off. My best memory of him is when we went to Linares, Chile, with others in our mission team, to help build a church. He worked hard and kept us motivated with his humor! We spent 10 days manually laying a cement foundation, one wheel barrow at a time. Doug mostly filled the cement mixer with stones, shovel by shovel, day after day. Back-breaking work for me, but not for Doug. I didn't realize at the time that he was 65 years old! We shared a hotel room during that trip and we jokingly got on each other's case as much as we could. He especially didn't like me banging on the bathroom door ... while he was in there. Another fond memory is when Doug and I helped a dear friend load her rental truck of her household, drive to Kentucky, and unload. He insisted we not share another bedroom. Doug will be sorely missed. He had many good friends and two wonderful sons. What a great dad and friend. Love you, Bode. Sorry we never got to make that kayak trip.

Chris & Kevin, We cannot begin to feel your loss. We only know that we lost a good friend and neighbor. Your father was the best neighbor one could have - he was always there to offer help or a tool - as he said, he had 3 of everything!
