As a young college graduate, the first few people you work with can have a great influence on how you begin your professional career. Doug was a mentor to me, and many others. He instilled pride in your work, attention to detail, and getting the job done. He exemplified a time when "good enough for the government" meant the best there was. For those who didn't work with him, all you'd have to do is see one of the decks he built. Doug organized office shing trips out of Tall Timbers where we caught a few fish, but mostly we (the Italians, Bunky and me) had a great time, We are all the better for having known you, Doug. God speed as you reunit with your Irene. Rick B.
