Doug was born in Vancouver on October 8th 1957. He grew up in Cultus Lake, BC where he started his most beloved job of being a radio DJ on CHWK 1270.

Doug was a gregarious and fun-loving man. He loved joking, laughing and entertaining. He loved exploring the continent with his wife Cathy, granddaughter Lilah and beloved family dog Bowser, on long RV trips through Canada, the US and Mexico.
