Doug - you were very well thought of amongst us little guys - (non- management) at Bendix Air Brakes and then at Garrett Turbo's - not to mention all of the customers. There were very few Sr. Managers like you who cherished input from all levels within the company to map out you mid and long term plans. I will never forget you as will many others of old sales reps that had nothing but the utmost respect and trust in your judgment. You were a true Leader and a very Good Man!

We will miss Doug's great sense of humor and warm smile. Hard to believe that he has left us, but God must have a plan. Hopefully he is watching down on us from "the great car show in sky" where we will join him someday.

Teri, we will miss Doug at our Class of 65' reunions. So sorry to hear of his passing. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your kids and family.
Our heartfelt sympathy to the family during this difficult time. Our grandsons, Kyle and Cole Buffington, loved their Uncle Doug and spoke so fondly of him. What a wonderful memory for two little boys. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Marty & Maureen Abelsen (Amy Buffington's parents)
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

I have so many memories of Doug. I still can see Doug and Teri coming to the pool in Michigan and we have been friends ever since. That had to be 1968 or 1969. Teri, you mean the world to me and I just know Doug will always be watching over you.
