Doug was an “adventure waiting to happen” and encouraged others to participate. In his younger years he loved skate boarding and had a broken arm to prove it. His email address for the last 40 years has been www.surfingator expressing his love for Florida Gators and the love of surfing! His love of motorcycles took him to The Barber Motorsports Park where he was a strong competitor. He had “the need for speed” in every sport. He next took on boating, zip lining, kayaking and his most recent favorite, his Segway. He loved taking his beloved dogs, iYa and Nuti, out for a run as he kept up on his Segway. He was known by his neighbors and local establishments as “Segway Doug”.
Doug was very involved promoting people of all levels in the Republican Party. He enjoyed and supported the local VFW Post 306 and the local Elks Club. He worked to improve the dog park . They knew him at city council as he fought for the betterment of the community.
Most of all he loved his family and many friends. He wanted the best for his nephews and nieces and was often imparting advice. He remembered birthdays and Christmas and put a lot of thought into his giving.
Doug never met a stranger and was well loved and liked by many! He lived a very full life in his 65 years and we will miss his smiling face and big hugs!
