We have been overwhelmed by the good wishes and wonderful stories so many of you have shared with us. For us, Doug was a great brother and son, along with being a meticulous pilot, a pioneering engineer, and a giver of time and talent.

Most importantly, thank you for your friendship and generosity at this difficult time. Doug would have wanted all of us to celebrate and embrace the life he lived – he lived it well.

A wonderful, patient teacher.

posted on behalf of Barbara Elwood

I am one of Doug’s neighbors. He was a tremendous help to me about 20 years ago when I was taking some computer programming classes. He would come over at 4 – 5 am before he went to work to help me with my homework; he was a wonderful, patient teacher. He joined us for our Christmas dinner; he always had a very positive outlook, we really enjoyed our time with him. He was going to take my daughter, Barbara Ann, sky diving but she backed out at the last minute, she should have gone, it would have been fun.
