As a young man Doug worked at numerous jobs, starting at C.E. Noyes in Westbrook, there he met and married his wife Ramona. He then moved his family to Vermont to start a job at Tap and Dye, Doug was offered a job in South Portland to drive trucks for Sunshine n’ Biscuit Distributors out of Winthrop, later known as Shop n’ Save. His job transferred him to Machias to work for Hannaford Brothers allowing him to move to Lubec. Doug finally retired after thirty-three years, for one year before reentering the trucking business for ten more years.
Doug enjoyed his Western movies, books, and spending time in his garage working on his 1989 Dodge Ram truck, everyone always knew if his truck was gone, he was at the stores chatting with the workers. He also enjoyed visiting his many family members, drinking coffee, and visits or phone calls from his two sisters and families.
