Our family, friends and community sadly lost a cherished family member on Wednesday

natural causes. Doug was born June 5, 1951 in Woodbury, Connecticut. He moved to San Diego,
California in 1971 where he served in the U.S. Navy as a Corpsman until being honorably

crossed paths with. His genuine caring personality led him to be the caregiver to a close
disabled friend for many years. Doug was a part of and supported the LGBTQ community as well
