Growing up, Doug went on numerous family vacations to visit family and often reminisced on these memories of visiting his many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He attended Omaha South High school where he excelled in swimming and gymnastics. He held several local and state titles, some of which were held for several decades. He also enjoyed Mustang cars and had many throughout his lifetime. One of his greatest enjoyments was hanging with his border collie Angus, who also recently passed away. He had a soft spot for all animals and also had many cats and ferrets in his life. Being a Grandpa and teaching his grandsons about cars and superheroes was another passion of his. This past summer he enjoyed tending to his remodeled garden and picking vegetables and flowers with his wife and daughters.
