A legacy starts with something remarkable. Coaches Wilkins, Bagli, Morgan and Reed built a culture of winning and good character that endures. Thank you Coach Wilkins for encouragement and for teaching valuable life lessons. I am always proud of my small part of our Herd.

The passing of Mr. Doug Wilkins is a great loss for his family, for his school, and for the
entire Northwest Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC).

I send my condolences to his three children, his son, Gord, and his daughters, Debra Becker and Anne
Wilson, and five grandchildren and the rest of the family. Theyve lost a loved one, Ive lost a friend, Mountain Lakes High School and the entire NJAC family have lost a coach and a principal who led his school and their football program with wisdom, honor, and dedication. I sent my condolences to Mr. Frank Sanchez, principal at Mountain Lakes; he too has lost a friend.

Mr. Wilkins was a true great from NJAC member schools, not just as a head football coach, but also as a principal. He provided a great deal of excellence for Mountain Lakes High School and was one of the greatest coaches in the state of New Jersey and he led one of the top high schools in the state. His wisdom, honor, and dedication exemplified the strength, caring and integrity that are essential to the roles in which he served in education.

To the Wilkins children and the rest of the Wilkins family. -

It was my pleasure to have been a classmate of both Doug and Marge at Moravian College. As a fellow history major we shared many of the same classes. I had the good fortune to play football and be a fraternity brother of Doug's. They were both among the most respected members of the class of 1964. They demonstrated most of the same skills and leadership traits you saw in their teaching and coaching careers during their college years. Doug was the president of our fraternity (Omicron Gamma Omega) as a senior. Though they were both highly intelligent and hard working they were very down to earth and knew how to let their hair down and have a good time. Being a student at Parsippany High School I'd played against Doug when he played at Roxbury High School. When Doug applied for the job at Mountain Lakes I applied for it as well. It was MLHS s good fortune that Doug got the job instead of me. It made all of Moravian teammates so proud when we learned of his success as the head coach at MLHS. He and Marge were both class acts. My brother Mark and I would get together with Doug for breakfast when ever we could. We had the pleasure of attending an MLHS game late in his career. He went out of his way to make us feel at home and saw we were taken care of despite all of his game responsibilities. Both of my parents died young and are buried in Denville. Doug found the time to attend both of their funerals. Your parents were a class act and always found time to care for and look after the needs of others. They also made it a point to give credit to others and deflect attention from themselves. What a wonderful example they have been for the many young men and women whose lives they touched during their lives. They mattered and they made a difference. I was blessed to have known them and to have them as my friends.

Dear Debbie, Lisa, Gordon and your families......
Laker Pride........not only did he instill it within his players, students and faculty, but he lived it as well. So many people were affected and touched by his role and leadership. He can now rest in peace along with your Mom, and they will long be remembered.
