Doug came to work for me Shure brothers while I was manager of the Automated Test Department. I was completely blown away by the news of his death and to this day it saddens me not to have seen him once again. There will forever remain a place in my heart for him and I will cherish our time together for the days to come. My sincerest condolences to all of his family. I mourn his loss too.

I first met Doug during my first day working at TV Guide and we fast became friends while going on to work side by side for several years. I learned quickly that we both shared affection for the Packers, but were at odds with me being from MN and backing the Gophers. I have many fond memories that include Doug, whether it be Mt. Biking, Packer watching, beer drinking, Tour De France watching and beer drinking or dressing up like idiots and riding around Denver on our bikes in the middle of the night during the annual Denver moonlight classic. We will remember all of the good times we shared together, admire the courage Doug showed throughout his battle with Cancer and most of all remember what an amazing person Doug was; Doug will definitely be missed by our family.

Shocked and saddened to hear of Doug’s passing. I met Doug over 20 years ago when he graduated from UW and came to Chicago. He was a coworker and a friend. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you. With deepest sympathy, Ray Jersey
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I worked with Doug at Shure in Evanston, before he moved to Colorado. We were on the "MI" team, which designed one of our company's most popular and successful wireless products, the "T Series". Doug was a great friend, and I missed him when he moved away. I always hoped that one day I'd see him in Colorado; one of my favorite places. I would like to extend my condolences to his family and friends.

I'm a coworker of Doug's from Time Warner Cable. It wasn't until fairly recently that we started working closely together but before that we'd known each other casually after finding out we'd both grown up in "The Valley". I am originally from Little Chute. We didn't pick each other out right away because we've both lost our Wisconsin accents, but we occasionally liked to practice on each other! As I began to know Doug better I began to highly value him as a coworker - someone with intelligence, integrity and a hard-working attitude. He also taught me some character lessons. I will always remember him telling me that after what he'd been through he understood the importance of every day. He lived up to that statement in everything he did and how he interacted with others. His absence is deeply felt by all of us who worked with him and for many of us it will have a lasting impact on our lives. We're proud for the man he was and will miss him greatly.

I was just starting to really get to know Doug. I was looking forward to working with him more closely than before. I am deeply saddened by his death and want to give my condolences to his friends and family. I mourn him and the lost opportunity of getting to know him better.
Dan Van Handel left a message on October 5, 2009:
Having grown up just outside of Appleton, in Darboy, WI, it was a pleasure to meet Doug while working in Colorado. We were practically neighbors growing up! Doug & I talked many times about the Packers, Brewers and other common interests from growing up in the Appleton area. You certainly have my deepest sympathies. It's always hard to see one of our own leave. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I met Doug when I started working at Time Warner Cable in Nov of 2007. He was kind and had a great sense of humor. He was always mindful to include me in his invitations for get-togethers and made sure I went along for company functions. I left Time Warner in August but am close to people there and know he will be greatly missed. Julie

I WILL MISS YOU DOUG. YOU WERE SUCH A GOOD MAN AND HUSBAND TO MY SISTER KARRIE. YOU HAD MANY HAPPY YEARS TOGETHER. SOME HARD ONES TOO. YOU WERE SO STRONG AND POSITIVE THROUGH EVERYTHING. MY FUNNY MEMORY WAS AFTER ONE OF YOUR SURGERIES YOU WANTED TO KNOW WHEN YOU WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GO HOME BECAUSE THERE WAS A PACKER GAME ON SUNDAY AND THERE WAS NO WAY YOU WERE GOING TO MISS IT! A TRUE PACKER FAN AND CHEESEHEAD. I AM GLAD YOU WERE IN MY LIFE. I LOVE YOU, JANIE
