    I was honored to coach girls softball for over 10 years and bowl with Doug as a team mate and later in the Foxy Seniors Bowling League he was a good friend and his kindness will be missed

    We called him Billy! I remember when he was born and grew up with him, he was my first cousin. We played Basketball together in the local church league. After every game we headed to the McDonalds on St Charles Road for a snack. He was always my Cousin and Buddy! RIP Billy!
