After a successful career at DuPont (ETI) for 39 years, Doug retired and continued to enjoy life to the fullest. Doug had many passions in his life which included hunting, hockey, 4 wheeling, boating ,antique cars to name a few, but his greatest passion was to spend time at his beloved Round Lake cottage surrounded by his family and his many good friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him but mostly by his family. They meant the world to Doug and the void that has been left in their lives by his passing will be hard to fill.
