With a sad and heavy heart I learned the news of your passing.  Losing a fiend is hard, but memories last a lifetime.  We had some great trips and motorcycle rides.  I admired the man, dad, and grandfather that you were. One could see the love you had for your family in photos that you shared. Doug admired his son-In-law, Doug and was happy that his daughter, Jenn married a good man. I loved your photos and videos of you and your granddaughter, Adalyn. R.I.P. my friend.  You will be missed by all who knew you. - Charlie

I had the great pleasure to know Doug while I was employed for Cumberland County Aging and Community Services.  It seems-we grew a beautiful friendship, sharing the ups and downs of our lives on almost a daily basis.  His love for family and friends was awesome.  May he Rest In Peace knowing that God has wrapped his loving arms around his family and friends as they heal.  Blessings and Love

So sorry to hear of his passing, I always enjoyed talking to him when I worked in one of the downtown offices at the county. He was always smiling. My thoughts are with his family.

My sincere sympathy to the family. Even though we were not in the same office, Doug was a coworker for a long time. Rarely was there a time when he did not have a smile on his face. Prayers to you for strength to get through this loss.
