To their union  two children were born – Tamera Diane and Gregg Douglas. 

Doug started out working for a local farmer and also did construction work. In 1997 he began his trucking career with Viessman’s. He retired in 2017. He took two years off but missed seeing people, visiting and being on the go so he helped out local farmers part time driving truck. Doug loved reading newspapers and anything to do with farming and livestock. He enjoyed tinkering on vehicles in his spare time. He cherished time spent with his family, grandchildren, going to the lake, county fairs and  going out to eat.
