    i was Stationed in London England with the US Navy. One night I got a phone call from Doug asking if my late wife. Cheryl and would like to meet him for a drink at the Eastern Airlines Hospitality Suite, That led to dinner at a Greek,Helpi's, and a great night of food and wine and swapping family stories. We invited him to our house for dinner and he came with Caviar and Champagne, My wife was really impressed until he said he took them from the first class cabin.
    We never were able to meet again but those times Doug visited us in London were very special. He was one of a kind.

    Doug and I were next-door neighbors growing up in Lorain, Ohio. I have many fond memories with him swimming at Lakeview Beach and doing things together. I remember when Doug raced power boats on Black River and I would go with his father to watch him race.
    He will be missed. May he Rest In Peace.

    Doug was my neighbor for the past nine years in Port Orange. Even though we were retired, we were always busy and seemed to have something going on every day.

    Doug was the best neighbor you could ever ask for, we never had a cross word and helped each other do chores, mainly loading and unloading lawn mowers and pressure washers from his white pickup truck.

    You can tell a lot about a person's character by how they interact with their pets. Doug loved Gabby and Gabby loved him, he lost Gabby a few months back and I know it just broke his heart. I pray that he is with Gabby now having a great time in heaven.

    I love Doug and miss looking across the street and seeing him. I guess in time things will be better, it hurts not having my friend and neighbor across the street!

    Rest in Peace, my friend.
