Doug was a talented craftsman and enjoyed home building, cabinetry, butcher blocks and other wood crafts. He was an avid hunter enjoying all levels of hunting - even exotics! His pride and joy were the two log cabins he built by hand from the ground up. Doug was a hard worker all of his life and often made trips to Texas to spend time with his grandsons teaching them his crafts such as hunting, fishing and his mushroom hobby. Doug always taught to only kill what you can eat and took great joy in teaching the proper cleaning, preparing and cooking the fruits of the hunt. In his later years Doug came to enjoy watching old westerns, The Animal Channel as well as The History Channel. Doug also loved his Siberian Husky, Sasha. She seldom left his side and now seems to spend her time looking for him to slip her a treat. Doug also enjoyed his fruit... bananas, oranges, berries, ice cream, chocolate, tar-black coffee (his absolute favorite) and everything else a diabetic shouldn't consume! He was a well-loved man and lived his life priding himself on having a full head of hair and his dazzling smile complete with all his original teeth!
