I am so sorry to hear of Doug's passing, my sincere condolences to Julie and Family. I remember showing up to work on my first day after finishing my university studies, greeted by this man of large stature (conversely I am of smaller stature). He gave me a warm welcome with and equally large smile and firm handshake. I worked with Doug for 14 years at Jordan River and valued his mentorship greatly. I remember the truck drives with Doug out to active road building and logging sites where his always present sidekick Moxy would aggressively protect us from every deer, squirrel, or tree branch brushing the truck. Doug worked hard and he expected the same of his crew and his appreciation and generosity to his staff was always shown at Christmas time where he and Julie would host a wonderful dinner party in Victoria. Also at Christmas he and Julie would invite my family to their home for a visit which my children, now age 22 and 19, still remember playing with Moxy. I remember one time when one of the heavy equipment operators at the dryland sort held out his hand holding some bearings and he asked Doug, "do you think these came out of my machine?", looking over at his machine to see that one of the wheels had almost fallen off, Doug was speechless. Later on Doug would laugh about this, and other things that happened over the years. Doug was a gifted story teller and so many of his stories would end with loud laughter, he loved to laugh. Even though Doug has left us it is memories that we all hold that he will not be forgotten.
