Doug was my best friend. I have known him since high school. We used to run cross-country and track together. When we got older, our families used to go on vacations together, and we got together once a week to watch the Indians, or Browns play, and to play cards. My family will greatly miss Doug.

Doug was always helpful and kind working with me. After he retired and worked part time, he still had that great smile for everyone. My prayers are with you, Sheree, and your family.

Doug was a man who treated everyone the same. There was never a time I saw him angry when I worked with him. I always liked hearing about the family vacations his family would take. Prayers to your family Sheree
