So sorry to hear of Doug’s passing. Haven’t seen him since BHS where we were classmates after also attending BDS with him. He was a friendly, likeable guy that had a big heart. Didn’t know he also had a love for animals but it doesn’t surprise me.

My prayers go out to the family for comfort and peace during this difficult time.

Very sorry to hear of Doug's passing. It's been a long time since our Belmont Hill days but I remember him as a gentle, kind soul with a keen interest in fast cars. My condolences to his family.

It was so sad to hear of Doug's passing. I was a Belmont Hill classmate of Doug's. He always struck me as a gentle, warm, personable and kind hearted person. When I learned of his work with the MSPCA, I must say that I was not the least bit surprised. My deepest condolences to his family.

I feel terrible to just discover doug passed away. Doug and I volunteered at the mspca together. We lost touch over the years. Doug was such a great guy and we all loved him especially the problem dogs, he was a natural in handling these dogs. We laughed, we cried, we had dinner, lunch together. Rest in peace my dear friend.
Pamela and Jordan.
