To my dear Myrt, Ann and Amy, my heart is heavy today. May the good Lord be with you and help guide you through this difficult time. There is such an emptiness when someone you have taken such wonderful care of passes. Doug was so lucky to have your love and patience surround him. Whether it was a doctor appointment,or a swim at the Y, you helped him leave this world with his boots on! What a wonderful gift. Please know that you are in my prayers and love you too.

My life changed in July 1986 when I met Doug Ogilvie. Doug was the finest gentleman that I ever had the pleasure to meet, he encouraged me and he gave me and my family an opportunity to own our own business that we would never of otherwise come across. Doug believed strongly in God, he served him all his life and he made others feel loved and wanted by his character and warmth. Doug was always the first to greet someone, extend a hand, encourage others and share how the employees of Pierce were the ones that made Pierce a successful company. Doug had a a humble mind, the heart of a servant and he was always kind and caring. Doug served his Country proudly and now Doug is with the Lord for an etermity. All of us that had the pleasure to meet and work with Doug were blessed in our relationship in knowing an incredibly special man. Billl Wright

Doug was an integral part of the Outagamie County Historical Society's survival and was a driving force in its success. I remember his big grin, and his joy in his cars.... I once had the experience of riding in a 1920's electric car out on his farm during a museum event for staff and board members. With deepest respect and admiration, condolences to the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

To all of the Ogilvie family my thoughts and prayers are with you. I was fortunate to be able to get to know Doug starting in 1977 when I first started selling Pierce apparatus. From that time on he was always a great inspiration to me in the way he treated people and the way he related to them. I always looked forward to my trips to Pierce when Doug was there, hoping that I would get to spend a few minutes talking with him. He was a great family man and served his community and his country well. We will miss him greatly. Steve Gulvin

To Myrt, and all the family, I was so looking forward to meeting Doug at our 100 th. anniversary celebration this summer. But God had a better celebration plan. Doug is walking the streets of gold. Doug was my inspiration and encourager. Doug made me feel a part of the "Pierce family". I pray God's peace and comfort to all the family. Amen Don Bouwer

To the Ogilvie family. A great man left us Sunday. I met Doug in 1984 when I began working for Fire & Safety and Pierce. From that time on a visit to Pierce and having Doug sit with us for a few minutes at breakfast was for me and my customers a highlight of the visit. Even though Doug was President of Pierce he had just as much genuine concern and kind words for a welder in the shop as a manager in the office. May you rest in peace as your legacy lives forever.

To the Ogilvie family my thoughts and prayers are with you. I met Doug in 1975 when I came to Pierce for the 1st time to pickup a small rescue and Doug at that time was taking the delivery photos out in the area which was the old drive-in theater! He was an inspiration to all who know him! We will all miss him.
Jerry Van Boxtel left a message on May 2, 2013:
What can one say about one of the greatest men I have ever met? Above all he was such a gentleman. I can recall so many stories of his kindness. One of the most memorable was when we started a night shift at the 41 plant and Doug told me he didn't want me to put any ladies on the night shift because he thought they should be with their families at night. He was such a sincere person and a pure pleasure to work for. I am sure Doug has a very special place in Heaven. My sorrow goes out to the family. God bless you Doug.

Wayne Tyler left a message on May 2, 2013:
My heart is heavy with grief, my life stopped for a moment as I tried to accept the passing of Doug. To the entire Ogilvie Family, Tyler Fire sends our deepest sympathies. I had the pleasure to met Doug and all his extended family in April 1976 when I move from Elmira NY to Appleton to join the Pierce family! Doug was the first person I met as he picked me up from the airport in Appleton and from there forward I had the pleasure of knowing a man who with open heart and spirit guided those around him, supported and listened to them and helped them. Anyone who was around him learned so much on how to treat people and customers. I am very honored to have met him as a young man and he gave my family and I the opportunity to own a business and build it into what it is today. In touching my life and my family, he has touched thousands through that one touch. There are so many heartfelt lessons I learned from watching him throughout my life.How you begin to say enough about this great man who left such a legend to those around him. The staff at Tyler Fire Equipment will always treasure our relationship with the Ogilvie Family. With Heartfelt Love and Sympathy to the Ogilvie Famiy, Wayne Tyler

For almost a decade, I have been surrounded with stories of the legendary Doug Ogilvie. His genuine personality, positive outlook on life, and dedication to his family at work and at home was talked about by so many. I was more than thankful for the opportunity to meet Doug in person for the first time just a few months back during his visit to Pierce. This was a memorable experience, as you could see a passion in his eyes as he smiled and greeted as many employees and customers that he possibly could that day. Folks waited in line to get the chance to reminisce with him or to simply shake his hand. It was evident that Doug had inspired and touched so many people’s lives throughout Pierce and the community. The hearts at Pierce are heavy today, but will forever be touched by the memories of a wonderful leader, neighbor, colleague, and friend. My deepest sympathy to Myrtle, Dave, Andy and the entire Ogilvie family. May God keep you close and give you peace and comfort. Nicole (Danner) Maufort

Dave, Andy and the extended Ogilvie family, The news of Doug's passing is received with great sorrow here on Cape Cod. Doug was a good friend and mentor. His smile and personality were infectious. He embodied a morality and ethic that affected his entire family, both the Ogilvie clan and all of us in the Pierce family. To those of us who worked with him, Doug was Pierce. Without his love and nurturing, Pierce would not have been what it is today. I shall cherish his memory forever. My love and sympathy to you all. John P. Jenkins

Kelly Baumgartle left a message on May 2, 2013:
My deepest sympathy to the entire Ogilvie famly. I met Doug shortly after starting with Pierce 26 years ago; it’s as memorable today as it was then. His warm and kind disposition immediately me made feel like part of the Pierce family. There are so few who have made as much of a difference as he has in caring for the many. Doug was unselfishly devoted to the cause and an inspiration to everyone he encountered. To this day, I still hear customers speak of him and their pleasant experiences of meeting Doug during a trip to Pierce in Appleton. Truly a legend has past, but the memories and the encouragement that he instilled in all of us will live on forever. God bless.

I will always remember the first day that he met me in the plant and the fact that he always knew my first name from that moment forward.

It was an honor to have worked for Doug, I started right out of college in 1970. I remained part of the Pierce Family until 1985 when I moved to PA with my young family to begin a new phase in my Pierce career, working with Domestic Fire Apparatus and Fire and Safety until 2007. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. Nancy was always tickled when we saw him, he always remembered her name <3 He will be forever missed. Our every thought and prayer and love are with his family. Wayne and Nancy Viegut

Billy Hanks left a message on May 2, 2013:
I had the honor to meet Mr. Ogilvie in 1988 as we were looking to purchase a new FIre Apparatus. He took time to talk to each of our staff about the things that we were looking for in a Fire Truck. Over the next couple of years we begin our relationship with Pierce Mfg. and Mr. Ogilivie. Mr. Ogilivie would always remember who we were and what kind of trucks we had purchased. He was a true businessman, dedicated to customer service and 100% satisfaction of the products he sold. He was a gentleman and a businessman and I would say that "He was a friend" . God be with the Ogilvie family and if we all could take away a small piece of his knowledge and caring and pass it around, the world could be a better place.

To all the Ogilvie family. I had the privilege to met Doug in Dec 1959 just after getting out of the Marine corp. my family lived two blocks from the original Pierce plant so on my way to see my buddy I stopped into see if Pierce was hiring . Doug told me that the plant needed to be cleaned up and asked me if I would do that with a hand shake I started at Pierce. 52 years later I retired from the pierce family but my life changed the day I started at Pierce because of the values Doug instilled in the Pierce family on how the employees should be treated and how the employee's need to treat the customers .Only once in a life time do you get the honor to meet such a remarkable person.

I started at Pierce in 1974 as a Welder / Assembler, I really didn't know a lot about the Fire Service, but after almost 40 years of working for or with Pierce, I know one thing for sure, Doug was a very special person.

Comments: I do not have any words to say or "magic dust" to make the Oglivie family feel any better. Doug was a person that had a desire to make a difference in other peoples lives and helped pursue opportunities for them - never for his own gain. He will be missed by many, but leaves a legacy that will last a long, long time.

To the dear family of Mr. Doug Ogilvie, I sold fire apparatus in South Carolina for another wonderful man who died a few years ago named Bob Fore. It was through Bob that I met and came to admire, respect and love Mr. Ogilvie. He served Pierce as a wonderful leader and believed in knowing & selling your product instead of bad mouthing the other guys. He was a true gentleman, who always had a kind word to say, and always lead by example. Doug was the kind a man, you never, ever forget ! Bill Hall, Fire Marshal Spartanburg, SC
Don Alexander left a message on May 2, 2013:
My Sympathy goes out to the entire Ogilvie Family. Thank you so much for sharing Doug with the fire service; the fire industry has truly lost one of the great ones. I met Doug in 1981 on a shopping trip to Pierce with John K. Finley. I admired him for knowing who we were, what truck we were looking at, etc. 9 Pierce trucks and 30 plus years later, I still admired his dedication and concern and caring about each customer and his attention to detail to make sure the truck was perfect when it left the plant. A true giant in the industry. I will always cherish the memories of breakfast and George's dinner with him. He truly made Pierce what it is today!

To the Ogilvie family, My family’s thoughts and prayers are with you. Like countless others, Doug touched our lives in such a positive way. He provided an opportunity for my Dad back in 1973 which has been passed on to me. Doug exemplified values that we all still live by today. My Dad learned so much from Doug and had the upmost respect for him. I witnessed this as a young man growing up in the Pierce family as my Dad instilled the same values into me. We are all so blessed to of had him in our lives. Doug will always represent to me the standard to set for myself as I continue in business and life.

Steve Vreeland left a message on May 2, 2013:
To the Ogilvies, The world has lost a great man, and most importantly the "Pierce Family" has lost thier "Founding Father". As Wayne Tyler explained I too was picked up at the airport by Doug back in 1978 when we were exploring the possibility of becoming a Pierce Dealer. From that moment on I never met more a gentleman than Doug. And after a few short hours Walt Runyon and Doug came up with an agreement (over a handshake) the rest is history. Over the next 30 years I echo the other principals, and sales reps, in declaring that Doug showed me the right way to treat customers, and how to conduct business. Bill Russell said it best; Doug did'nt manage from the office, he walked the plant daily communicated with the employee's and customer's and that gave him the "pulse" of the company. Few leaders deploy that tactic today, Doug wrote the book. I miss the daily breakfast chats with Doug, along with the other great aspects of being a Pierce Sales rep. But my life will always be blessed with knowing Doug Olgivie, Rest in Piece My Friend.

Doug was the owner / President / C.E.O. when I started working at Pierce in 1988. I was MOST impressed with his kindness and caring personna. He seemed to always remember anyone's name. He always addressed employees, customers, and dealership personnel by their first name. Pierce was 75 years old, when I was hired. Now, Pierce is 100 years old. In my 25 years, it is one of my greatest honors to have met Doug, and speak with him on numerous occasions. As an employee, he always made me feel as a valued team member, or part of a great family.

A truly great man has passed on into a better eternity. I first met Doug while on a "shopping" trip to the Pierce plant in 1989. In the years since I have spoken with him, or shared a meal with him many times. He never failed to remember my name or who I was affiliated with. Doug's professionalism was evident in the pride he took in every unit that left the plant - he wanted them right. On one of my early trips I found him in the far corner of the refurbish center checking the fit on the doors on a unit that had been in a major accident and was in for repair. The speaks of dedication. My condolences to both the Olgivie family and the Pierce family at large.

One of the most unique individuals Gary and I ever knew. He truly cared about people and Gary always appreciated Doug searching him out or making arrangements for a special breakfast with him. Their last visit was about Doug's car collection. Doug had a great vision and look where that company is now. He was very encouraging to Gary when Hughes Fires Equipment was started many years ago. May God be with the family as they work through this loss.

To the entire Ogilvie Family we extend our deepest sympathies. I first met Doug Ogilvie in the mid 1970s when we were looking for a dealership. Pierce was much smaller then and a lot of the operation was still downtown. When I spent some time with Doug during that trip, I could see that he was the personality that drove the company. He included me in his scheduled even though we had just met and showed me how things operated. He knew everyone in the plant. As our mutual businesses grew I learned a lot of things from the way Doug ran things; manage by walking around not just from the office, talk to your employees on a daily basis to find out what they think and ways to improve, get involved with your customers and take care of their needs. There were all lessons that helped Pierce and Fire & Safety Services grow. I owe a great debt of gratitude to Doug for the things he taught me and may not have realize he was teaching me. Doug also set great examples with his patriotism, involvement with his community and participation in the fire industry associations. When there was a Dealer function, he always spent some time with Pat and me, remembering things about us and events in our lives that mad you know that he really cared. He definitely made our affiliation with the Pierce family a great one and he will be missed by us all.

To Ann and the Ogilvie Family, I am so sad and sorry to hear the Mr. Ogilvie's news. I will always remember his gentle smile and voice. As a family we never forget his happy smile introducing his "toys" and collection to us in the summer of 2001. He was really an image of American Dad to me. Many thanks and our thoughts are with you. - Chika Kuroiwa and the Kurosaki Family, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong March 28, 2013

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Ogilvie family. I sincerely hope you can take some comfort in knowing the legacy that Doug left behind him. I remember his kindness and generous spirit from my childhood, when my dad worked at the plant. And today, I still strive to treat our customers the same way he did. I feel strongly that my family has something special because of Doug's vision all those years ago. I am honored to have known him.

I started at Pierce back in 85. To me, Mr. Ogilvie was Pierce and everything it stands for. It was an honor to talk with him a short time ago when he visited Pierce. I talked with him about my brother Peter as he knew Doug alot more than I did. He listened and smiled, just as he always did to everyone when he was still at Pierce in his working days there. He was a great man. Prayers and my sympathies for his family.
