I just heard from our mutual friend, Judy Butler, about Doug's passing. I really enjoyed reading his obituary and learning what ALL he had done with his life. I spent time with him at Clear Lake in high school and college but always remembered him fondly. He truly was a remarkable man and impacted so many lives in very positive ways. My thoughts are with all of you.

My deepest regrets to the Salmon family. I will always remember Doug as being a very kind man and one of the things I admired about him, was that no matter what position you held in any of the Highland apartments, he treated us all as equal.

Lynn and Family- I'm so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a great guy - thoughtful, generous, tough and funny. I'll always remember him the way he was in 1991... the last year I lived in Appleton full-time. Sending love and support your way.

Carla, Lynn and Dan. We are so deeply sorry for this loss. Doug was a man that inspired us and helped us set up our future; he will be missed. ‘And a voice from heaven came to my ears, saying, Put in writing, There is a blessing on the dead who from now on come to their end in the Lord: yes, says the Spirit, that they may have rest from their troubles; for their works go with them.’ Revelations 14:13

Carla and family.....I feel like I lost a brother.. Judy, Steve, myself and Doug spend so many wonderful adventures together. I'm glad he is no longer suffering but so sad for the loss of a good friend. Great memories are what keeps us going.
