I first met Dougie 30 years ago when I started "courting" his niece, Janice. If we had any problems with anything mechanical or electrical he was always there with his great knowledge. I remember fondly the times we spent together repairing my cars, helping him build his summer house and having a few drinks under the gazebos that he designed. You will be missed greatly R.I.P.

Uncle Douglas gave me a lot of time and help when I was an apprentice engineer and with different projects when I was younger
He was so talented in all he did
I will always remember how he gave encouragement to young people

Doug gave me my first job as a machine operator at J.W. Tait's nearly 50 years ago, and then we went on to become very good friends and workmates. We had many happy and eventful times, both in the pub and at work. Doug was always there when I needed him, repairing cars, diggers and working on the farm , but the biggest change in my life was when he advised me to drive a digger for L. W. Pickard. I then went on to become a manager for him and then started my own business. I have an awful lot to thank Doug for in my life, it's been a privilege to have known him and to be his friend over the years. Doug will be sadly missed by many, especially me.
Ken
