He was born in Detroit, MI, and was the only child of Bernard W. and Celia Selik. During his teen years, he was sent to Los Angeles to live with relatives while his mother recovered from TB. He went to Fairfax High for a year but returned to Detroit to graduate from Central High School. Doug got the taste for the warm SoCal weather, so after his 2 years of service in the Air Force during WWII, he returned to Los Angeles.

It was there that he instilled a strong work ethic in his children and the many people he employed who helped him become a success in business.
