After Doug’s honorable discharge from the Air Force in 1987, he continued his career as a pilot with US Airways. He loved every day that he got to fly. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1994 and continued to fly until March 2002 when he voluntarily surrendered his wings. For the next 13 years, his focus was to volunteer in the community, as well as his membership with the Davidson Lions Club.

Doug was a kid at heart. He loved traveling with his family, swimming, and spending time at the lake. He loved to put on a firework show for the 4th of July, scare the neighborhood on Halloween, or just play cards with friends.
