In his retirement he took great pride in assisting with the flower beds at The Landings Golf Course. Doug was extremely proud of his children and grandchildren and loved to be part of their many adventures and accomplishments. He sometimes went great distances to support and cheer on many sporting events, concerts, dance recitals and hardly ever missed a graduation ceremony.
