  1. Diane, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know he is in a great majestic place now. He was honestly one of the good guys. Many special memories are stored in my heart and mind of spending time with you, Doug, and the girls. Please give Kristi and Erin special hugs from me. Love to you and your family.

  2. We enjoyed having Doug in our home almost every week for several years while he was an outside salesman for AEC. He was more of a friend to me than salesman, and we had lots and lots of laughs. It was really hard to get the best of him. We had so many inside jokes, and when I’d call an order in, and he’d answer, I’d ask if there was anyone else that could help me, and we would end up laughing instead to doing business. Doug was a great way to start my week.

  3. So sorry to hear about Doug’s passing. Also worked with him at American Electric….Was always so nice and fun to work with. He was such a good person. Sending thoughts and prayers to Diane and family.

  4. I am so very sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. He was always a kind man. I will always cherish the card games we played on the school bus with two other classmates. It was so nice to have reconnected with Doug in the past year. Always so positive!

  5. My Condolences to the Withrow famly, I enjoyed his job-site visits whenever he saw us working in the area! Really loved his famly!
