He returned to Greenwood, South Carolina and met and married Frances Lee Drake on June 22, 1953 and moved to Seattle shortly after. He worked for Safeway in West Seattle for several years and then left and started his own Exxon Service Station franchises in the south Seattle area.

Doug loved his church family at Foster Tukwila Presbyterian very much. He looked forward to seeing them every week and being involved in the various activities.

He was a wonderful and loving father, dedicated and loyal husband, great friend, brother and Uncle to many loved nieces and nephews. His sweet, joyous and giving spirit will forever remain in our hearts.
