  7. Doug was a member of our senior lunch group at Old Country Buffet for many years. He was very interesting with the many subjects that he had interest in, some were movies and TV shows (he knew all names of those in many movies and also the directors and producers). Doug was a private person and did not share much about his own life. He mostly spoke of people (characters) that he would associate with at flea markets, comic shows and just everyday life. Doug was a very kind person and was always generous in helping others. Many times he would go way out of his way to help others.
    Doug was a vegetarian and ate many combinations of foods, never meat and he loved ice cream and desserts.
    Doug often spoke of his cats, especially Blackie, he would take many scraps of food from the buffet home to Blackie. He fed the neighbors cats too.
    Doug was known by many for the unique hat that he always wore to protect him from the sun.
    Doug will be missed by so many of his Old Country Buffet friends. Bless you Doug and rest in peace. You will not be forgotten.

  8. Doug was one of our regular customer at the Golden Corral in Elkton MD. Doug would often pick up or meet his friends for lunch. I / we will all miss his genuine smile and great personality. He always had a kind word to say. You will be missed…
