Biographical Comments
Everyone who met Doug was touched by his desire to have fun and live life to the fullest. He enjoyed what each day had to offer and accept life’s ups and downs. Doug will forever be the “BIG GUY with the BIG HEART”. Doug will be forever remembered for his love of football, hockey, and riding motocross with his two brothers and of course playing cards. Family and friends will carry with them the countless memories of numerous golf vacations and cross boarder weekend getaways.
