Doug was a very outgoing gentleman. He was a member of the Jackson Golf Club, where enjoyed going out golfing with the boys: Jim Wohlers, the late Rick Nesmoe and the late Randy Polz. Doug was in a bowling league in Lakefield, and bowled a perfect 300 game. He was an avid sports fan, paying special attention to his fantasy football teams.  Doug liked taking trips to the surrounding casinos, trying his luck, took various trips to Vegas, and playing Bingo at the Legion in Jackson on Wednesday evening. Doug always had a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed by his family, fellow co-workers, and great friends.
