Doug proudly served his country as part of the 11th Calvary in the U.S. Army, earning a Purple Heart in the Vietnam War. He was an active member and deacon at Wilbanks Christian Church. He loved and supported his family and community, and spent hours at the beach, fishing, and reading voraciously. Nothing meant more to Doug than spending time at a baseball game with his two boys, Edward, and Dwight.
