  1. To Doug’s family, my deepest sympathies. Doug and I were co-workers for probably twenty years and he was well-liked by everyone at work. He was hard working, dependable and knew his job well, but he was also great to talk to on a personal basis, and I enjoyed our conversations very much. I was so happy for him when he retired as he seemed so excited to be moving to Colorado where they had ‘real weather’. Please know he will be missed very much.

  2. My sincere sympathies to Doug’s family on his sudden passing. I worked with Doug for just the last few years of his career at the district office in Costa Mesa. We are all saddened here by this news.

He was always willing to help the newcomers and was very patient. We missed him when he retired and now we will miss him even more.
