Doug was complicated. He was fun and infuriating, silly and serious, insightful and capable of huge misjudgments. He created and enjoyed several life long friendships and made friends easily with expressions of warmth and enthusiasm.
Doug sought treatment many times and for short periods of time experienced life mostly free of substance use. He had significant health challenges and these often complicated his relationships with medications, drugs, and alcohol. He leaves an empty space for many and his family will always recall with great love and appreciation his unique personality and perspective.
