Doug was born in Cleveland on May 3, 1959 and passed away on May 22, 2022.  He was a resident of Mayfield Heights for 37 years, previously of Newbury. He graduated from Newbury High School in 1977 and worked in many industrial settings, including manufacturing, custodial, HVAC, and home improvement.  Doug loved to cook and share his “creations” with his family.  Having grown up in the country, Doug continued to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature and spending time outdoors.  Doug’s hobbies included puzzles, cars, tractors, guns, and shooting.  He shared his love of shooting with his kids, brother-in-law, and friends.  He was a fan of Cleveland sports, as well as UFC.   Of all the things he enjoyed, his greatest love was his family.  Doug was sociable, friendly, and witty, with a great sense of humor. He liked to say that although his body might get old, his mind and heart will always stay young. Doug was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and he will be missed by so many.
