I am so sorry for the loss of Doug. Tammy, I know how much you loved Doug and how much he loved you. Doug was kind each time I saw him, even when I had a million questions for him. I love hearing Tammy talk about him and the things they did together. My condolences to all and continued prayers as you navigate not just now, but a new life with Doug as your angel.

I met Doug when he started working for the Borough in 2017 and I can say that it was a pleasure to work with him. Doug had a great sense of humor, huge heart and a wonderful laugh. He would give anyone the shirt off his back. If you were down all you had to do was talk to Doug and he would put a smile on your face. Doug wasn't just a co-worker he was also a friend. I enjoyed getting to know Doug and the time I had working with him. Tammy you are in my thoughts and prayers. You have a wonderful Angel watching over you forever. Rest in peace my friend, you will always be remembered and loved. Sandy Conrad
