Doug was a truck driver most of his life and probably enjoyed most of the 25 years he had the garbage contract for the town of Strathroy. He enjoyed meeting people and had great employees to work with. He also belonged to the Optimist Club and coached several teams in minor hockey.
In retirement, he took up golf and met many new friends. You would see him at Caradoc Sands almost every day of the week from the time it opened in Spring to closing in Fall.
