Doug trained me 15 years ago when I came to Barnes. He did threaten me with bodily harm or worse for my stupid mistakes but what patience he had sharing a wealth of knowledge about dispatching, taking care of customers, and most of all caring for the drivers. We laughed at his wild stories. We still talk about his crazy Christmas carol he sang every Christmas. His trips to Vegas, Cherokee, and Myrtle Beach always had stories and people to tell us about. Doug was a great friend and mentor to all of us. His family meant so much to him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Doug will be missed, but not forgotten. Randy Edwards
