Douglas enjoyed a life full of family, friends and professional accomplishments. As a husband he helped raise two children with Sherry while working his entire life. As a father he guided his two sons drawing from his education, civic and sports experiences. He spent a great deal of time driving his son’s to and from baseball, Boy Scouts, football, wrestling, and Civil Air Patrol activities, as well as taking various leadership roles in those organizations. After his youngest son entered the workforce, Douglas continued to stay active in our community by volunteering his free time in various nonprofit organizations helping those in need as a handyman, or simply just someone who was willing to listen.
