Doug was born in Edmond, Washington on November 29, 1951, before his family relocated to Oregon. Growing up, he loved hunting, fishing, and playing sports. After high school, Doug joined the United States Air Force where he worked as an Inventory Management Specialist and served during the Vietnam War. Following his military service, Doug went to work for International Paper in Gardner, Oregon, and later worked pouring concrete and delivering papers for the Register Guard.
Doug was an avid fisherman, mushroom picker, bowler, and enjoyed watching sports. In his bowling career, Doug bowled three perfect games and won multiple tournaments. He also liked to work with wood, making bird houses and small toys. Doug was a member of the Florence Moose Lodge for many years prior to its closing, where he enjoyed cooking and calling bingo.
Doug’s ashes will be spread with his mothers and fathers in a private location. The family invites friends and loved ones to a Celebration of Life to honor Doug on April 1 at 2:00 PM held at the Oregon Coast Military Museum, located at 2145 Kingwood St, Florence, OR 97439.
