Doug served in the Vietnam War as a radar man on the oiler USS Mispillion. Upon being Honorably discharged, he attended Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon graduating in flight Technology. While Doug was employed as a flight instructor and commercial pilot for Salem Aviation, he met his wife to be Lynelle, one of his students.

Doug and Lynelle were married on October 9, 1976, in an airplane over Salem, Oregon. They went on to be co-owners, with Lynelle’s father, of Salem Custom Interiors. Doug was active in the Homebuilder Association in Salem. Upon selling the business, Doug worked for the State of Oregon Department of Transportation and the Salem Golf Club.
