Sorry to hear of this.

Linda, Renee and Wayne,
So sorry to hear this, my memories of Doug was that he was a true craftsman and custom carpenter and when Matthew worked with him years ago, he would tell me about some of their projects with such pride in his Uncle. Doug was always kind to me when we would visit or you all visited us. Great memories. Sincerely, Jody Morris

My friend

Wayne was a one of a kind. He would help anybody. He will be missed. I loved the time we had spent in his driveway talking about any and everything.

My sympathies to the family and friends. Doug was so interesting to catch up with at reunions. He was always so present and enthusiastic in conversations. We talked at length about his wood working projects. May your memories and his zest for life be your companions. Kathleen FlynnBarnett

Our friend and neighbor.

Wayne was a wonderful friend. He would come sit with us if he passed by and saw us out. He never knew a stranger. We will certainly miss Wayne.

Sorry for your loss.

Mr. Mack was my boys bus driver years ago.
He was a great man. He’d drive through the neighborhood during the summer months just to say hello to all the kiddos.
My condolences to his family.
