  6. I met Mr. Doug this year when I started my new job in earlier this year. He certainly had a special way about him and he always “told it like it was” with anything. Mr. Doug always had a smile whenever I saw him. We always would have an interesting conversation about something. We spoke last week about pork belly and how I wanted to try it and I was going to come buy some from him. I will truly miss him although we only knew each other for a short time. He had an infection spirit that will live on through all that knew him. Fly High Mr. Doug

  8. So sorry to hear of Mr. Doug’s passing. My deepest sympathies to the family. Have known Mr. Doug for many, many years, and was always a pleasure talking with him. He would always look out for “us” whenever we had a function, as well as personally (IYKYK). Rest easy my friend, you will be missed.
