So sorry to hear of Doug's passing. Ed and I knew Doug and family for many years. Doug and Dave build our two buildings for our business. And what a great job they did. And we know Joanne and Al from the business we used to have!
May God comfort your entire family

Cheri, Dave, and Joanne,
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and brother. I have many fond memories of Doug during high school and beyond and was saddened when my brother called to tell me Doug had passed. I pray that God comforts you during this difficult time. R.I.P. Doug. 🙏🌷

My deepest sympathy goes out to Cheri, Kimber and Paul, also to Dave and Joann.
I am going to miss Doug texting him on holidays and his birthday and his famous reply to me was Bahumbug!
Doug took me under his wing rite after he married my sister. He thought me a lot about construction I use to do side jobs with him and his brother Dave when I was younger. I worked with Doug about 6 years ago for a little over a year. We use to have a lot of fun at work. He will never realize how much I appreciated all the time we spent together. I am doing construction on my own and would’ve never had the confidence to do that if it wasn’t for him. We have always stayed in touch. I will miss talking to him but I know he is in a better place.
I LOVE YOU BROTHER-IN-LAW RIP. U will never be forgotten!
