Doug enjoyed working with wood and building things; also he loved the game of golf, although he did admit he wasn't very good at either. He also enjoyed cleaning and waxing his Corvettes-he did make those white plastic cars shine. He enjoyed life, loved his family, cherished his friends, and knew how to surround us all with laughter.
