Doug was a wonderful, caring man who was kind and polite to all he met. He loved all sports, but football was his favorite and he was a Chicago Bears fan to the bone. Doug also loved to hunt, fish, ride his horses, camp and he loved his ducks! He also leaves behind his wingman, Biskit the dog and Billie the German shepherd. Summer found him outside enjoying his three acres of yard, gardening and relaxing by the duck pond.
