Mike, Pat, Scott & Brent, I am so sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Even though is has been a while since I have seen Doug driving around town for hours on end, I often thought of him and wondered about him. I always had fun hanging with Doug and crew and the Barber shop steps back in the day. His smile was contagious! Rest in Peace Doug!!!
