His outgoing and adventurous spirit attracted many people with whom he welcomed with open arms. Throughout his lifetime, he was a very kind and generous soul. The most important moments of Doug’s life were spent with Patty and his son, Daniel (Doug’s best buddy) by his side enjoying family time on Sand Point, MI and Anna Maria Island, FL.
