Doug and I worked together on a few projects at Tinker before we retired. And we worked together after retiring doing a little bit of everything. He always had us giggling about something. My wife and I will miss him.

I am very sorry to hear of the loss. May he Rest In Peace. My condolences to the whole family. What Tragedy to hear that 3 people died in a car accident on Christmas Day. May the Good Lord be with them and give them his peace as they enter into eternal rest. Amen

I cannot tell you how sorry I am about his passing along with Susie and her mother. I was a total shock. The obituary is right. He never met a stranger. More people should be like him!

I am so sorry for your loss. I know they will be missed by many. I grew up and went to school with Doug K-12. As happens, we lost track after high school and recently became friends in FB. I'm grateful for that. My prayers go out to the family.
