BHS Class of 66 will never forget Doug. He was a great friend, a math wizard, a tough lineman and captain of the football team, and a competitive miler on the track team. A proud Navy veteran. Doug stood the watch so that his countrymen could sleep soundly, in safety, knowing that a sailor would stand the watch. Shipmate, you stand relieved. Thank you for your faithful service.

I am praying for your family. Doug and I graduated together. He will be missed. I remember when his family owned Snyder's. They had the best hamburgers in the world. God bless you all.
