Doug, you were an officer and a gentleman! Your sense of humor always uplifted me. I'm so grateful that Charlie and I knew you. We'll never forget the times we all spent with Robertson's Battery--meetings, camping at reenactments, live firing practice...It was an honor to know a patriotic soldier who bravely served our country in many conflicts. Doug, you were a true friend to all and we will miss our 'Gunner'! God bless you! Our prayers go out to sweet June and the family. Frances and Charles Coe
Ms. June you know where we are at.
There really are no words that can put the lose into perspective. But a good man has left our presence, but not our thoughts as he has left a mark on each of us that he was in contact with. Thank you for being you.
Doug was the real deal! Hollywood could not duplicate his exploits. I did not get to know him till about 8 years ago when he joined up with us to again feel the thunder of artillery. I am glad to of had the opportunity to been on the camp ground with him over the years. Doug and I became friends and even exchanged good natured jabs. I was always eager to hear his story's. I am so glad that he was able to attend our meeting last December. He will be missed greatly. Rest in Peace friend and keep your powder dry!
We will miss Gunner very much. He has been an inspiration to us for the last 19 years we have been shooting together at ERML and now ERGC shooting range. Doug was a very close friend and mentor for me and I will miss his advice and friendship the rest if my life. I know the man upstairs was standing tall when
Doug entered heavens gate in full dress, spit and polished as always. Mrs June if you need anything let us know
Miss June, I'm sorry for your loss. The "Colonel" was a special and very talented man, with interests in many areas. I enjoyed visiting in your home when doing photography of his collection. He had many interesting stories, which I enjoyed.
