I had the good fortune to play tennis with Doug for the last 3 years. I am 57 and he was an inspiration to be as energetic and fit as he was. He always had a smile and made me feel welcome when he introduced me to his other tennis playing friends. I will miss you Doug and hope you are saving a court for me in heaven.

Neil Goldstein on Jul 10, 2020

Doug Boy, I will miss you dearly, as we have sparred on the Tennis court for
30 years. we have prayed together, we have laughed together, we have traveled together, but most we have tried to add a little humor and a little
levity to this somewhat imperfect world. You leave us now, but your spirit
will always touch those around us and near out hearts. rest in peace, my
good friend, and know that we are all a good deal better just knowing your face and listening to your words.

Doug was a true gentleman in every way and I will miss his conversation, wit, and laughter.

Doug's life was one well-lived and rich in lasting memories. Christine and Erin, hold on to the many wonderful memories you shared with him. May these help you both find comfort as you heal from your grief. With heartfelt sympathy, Charles and bridget irons

Dear Erin and Chris,
We are so sorry for your loss. Doug is in a better place now without pain. Our fondest memory of him was when we came to Chinatown and had lunch with you two. He always had such a great sense of humor and was truly interested in all we had to say. Please let us know if there is anything we can do. Our deepest condolences go out to you.
