Posted Condolences:


  1. Chris, Nathan, Tim, and Nancy We are so very sorry for your loss. Doug was one of the best bus drivers in Carrington and the kids really loved him. Eva especially because Doug didn’t take crap from anyone. He was always happy and loved to talk. You always had a smile on your face when he left. He will be missed greatly.

  2. Doug was a good guy who was kind and had a good sense of humor.

  4. Ginger, I read in the Fargo Forum that your brother had passed away. My thoughts are with you Bruce

  5. We heard today of Doug’s passing. Chris, Nathan and Tim, so very sorry for the loss of your dad. We have so many good memories of Doug and Myrt and your growing up years at Barlow. Asking God to comfort you in your loss.

  6. Chris, Nathan, and Tim,

    I never knew your dad, but I was in the same classroom as your mother, Uncle Clarence, and Aunt Darlene in rural Pettibone in1957-1958. That was a long time ago, but I still remember Myrtle. My mother was the teacher in that school for one year. My siblings and I just lost our dad. He died on the 23rd, so I share in your sorrow.
