He loved his family fiercely and enjoyed spending time with them, especially watching movies, working on cars, and taking rides with his daughter. Doug also enjoyed hunting and fishing with his nephews, working on and riding dirt bikes, and playing golf with his buddies. He was also a “grill master” and loved cooking for the entire family, and he was known for his steaks and burgers.
