He graduated from James Island High School, where he played in the band, and attended the College of Charleston. He worked in the automotive industry, most recently at Marchant Chevrolet in Ravenel, SC. He loved NASCAR, history, and country music. He was a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Secession Camp No. 4, and was proud of his heritage. Doug held many roles, but his most cherished title was that of "Dad."

My heart hurts that you are no longer here sweet Doug. We shared a one-of-a-kind young love story that began at the Gettysburg re-enactment snowball stand 28 years ago. We may have lost touch for little while, but I am so thankful we reconnected (thanks Kimberly) about 6 years ago and kept in touch since. While we won´t get to have the reunion here in earth we wrote about all those years ago, I know we will one day in heaven. My heart goes out to your sons, your family, and your many friends.

Doug and I went to high school together at JIHS. He was always a very kind and sweet friend! In the new age of social media, so many of us over the years have been blessed with being able to talk and share our lives with each other. Please know that my family and I are praying for GOD´S comfort and peace that passes all understanding over all of you! May GOD HOLD you today and always. May the memories of Doug allow your hearts to have peace in knowing that he is with our Heavenly Father. May his legacy live on in all that each of you do. May GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
