Above all, this man does not need an introduction, to put it simply; he lived by a strict code “Go big or Go home”. Douglas was of the Christian faith and was a member of the Church of the USMC. Doug bravely served in the United States Marines from 1987-1991, “Once a Marine always a Marine”. This man worked his entire life for his loved ones. Between swing shifts as a shift supervisor for over 24 years being a part of the Covanta family; as well as a longtime member of the volunteer force at NFMJFA, and NFMLL, North H.S. and Island Coast H.S. (just to name a few), he always gave 110% and expected no less from everyone else. He believed in coaching all kids on and off the field to the best of their ability with no quarter given. He was an outstanding member of the community that influenced everyone he encountered. Doug dedicated his legacy to the love and fulfillment of his family. Spending every minute of his life ensuring the betterment of everyone around him; Douglas was genuinely loved and should be immortalized as a community role model and someone all walks of life should strive to be.
