Doug was my uncle even though were not blood related I always thought of him as my uncle even after his divorce. He was a hell of a man. Always laughing, smiling, and having a good time. He made every family reunion a fun time for me. That four hour drive was worth it every year to come and see him and he will definitely be missed by us in Warsaw. But I know he’s in a better place now. I’ll always remember him and that yellow truck and most recently his little Metro and of course his PBR. He was a great man and will be missed tremendously. But one thing I noticed on his obituary was there was no mention of his significant other, Shirley. I know he loved her and I send deepest sympathies to her for this loss.
