  • Doug was a great neighbor and friend to Doug and I. He was a true friend to Doug and he will miss his golfing partner. We have in our yard a beautiful plant holder with a quail on top that Doug made us when we lived in West Richland across the street from them. We will always have a piece of Doug in our yard to remember him by. Thanks to Doug when we needed a special help on projects, like getting a rattle snake out of our garage, he was always there. He loved working out in his shop and was an amazing handyman. We had many good laughs with our friend. We will always love him and always miss him. Thanks Doug for being you.
