  1. Doug was a wonderful friend to me. He knew my oldest brother. I hope they are together in Heaven now.
    I will miss the fun we had on FB with the quizzes we played.
    Rest In Peace my friend.

  2. I have known Doug for 55 plus years, and have always been struck by his sweet personality and his fun humor! Not only did I attend school with Doug, but knew his parents from a young age. We have been playing trivia games on Facebook, having competed together and also against each other, and chatting back and forth. I am truly going to miss my old friend/rediscovered trivia partner more than I can say. Sincere condolences to his nieces and cousins, and prayers for sweet grace and peace.

  3. Doug and I went to school together and later use to run around together when he moved to the gulf coast. He will be missed but he doesn’t hurt anymore and he and his dog Happy are back together again RIP ole buddy and thanks for the friendship all the years

  4. Doug (Dubby) and his family would come to Galveston to visit his cousins, Warren & Tommy Chamberlain – my neighbors. We had a lot of fun. Later, as a member of the 2nd Armored Division Band, I went to Lampasas for a parade and festival. Doug was working in the beer wagon and we had a good visit. He was a good man.
