    I want to give Dougs family my sincere condolences. Doug was a good friend and taught me the housekeeping industry. He was a great teacher and I can’t begin to tell you what a great guy he was. Carmon Gempler.

    John and Christine,

    I am saddened by the news of your fathers death. I am sorry I didn’t attend his funeral but just discovered the news while looking for someone else’s obit. I have fond memories of referring with your father and enjoyed his presence on the sidelines while coaching John and at the East games. Best wishes to both of you and your entire family.

    My sympathy at the loss of your Dad. I got to meet him about 11/2 years ago, when I was in Rennes for a period of time. He was always happy and had something to say. I enjoyed seeing him while I was there, even had dinner with him one night in the dining room his table had the only open chair. God has brought your Dad peace, now please accept the same for yourself and family Blessings and prayers to all.

    Hulleman family,
    So very sorry for your loss. I have many memories of good times at your house when we (Chris and I ) we’re in junior high. Hope the many memories of your dad/grandpa will give you a little solace during this tough time.

    Doug was such a great addition to the local amateur theatrical scene. We acted with him in several WCT productions, both musicals and plays, and he was a comic on stage or off. His addition to the Mad Regals as the emperor Caligula never failed to add smiles to the group and to the performances. His love for the music and his determination to participate fully in the music (and the script) were examples of his desire to entertain. His love of small practical jokes, plays on words, and optimism toward fellow actors on and off stage caused some of the best memories. And his expertise in maintenance helped us all in many ways. We will miss him.
