  • I knew Doug through NCC. He was always quick with a joke and knew how to make you feel better if something serious was going on. I know the first time I was facing homelessness he was someone who inspired me and talked to me and helped me cope. I don’t know anyone who knew him and doesn’t remember him as a bright, good person.

    I’m so, so sorry for your loss. He was truly a one of a kind human being and he will be missed dearly by the people around him. I’m so greatful I knew him for the time I did.

  • I met Doug at NCC. He always struck me as a good man. He always did the right thing, even when it wasn’t easy. He acted like it was the most normal thing to go out of his way to help people. He helped me with my truck or anything else. He was really there for everyone. He was a good friend and it’s so sad to see him go.
