So sorry to hear about the Doc. Couldn’t help but smile remembering when he brought his boys to Nova Scotia years ago and took them on a camping tour of the province in my Chevy blazer. I was lucky enough to receive a call from him not to long ago. Sincere condolences to the family we lost a great one.

Doc was a good friend, a kind and caring human being and an absolute joy to be around sharing life, a drink and a story. We remember well his cute little chuckle and the twinkle in his eye as he carried on his life and truly cared about others at all times. When Juri was injured, he was always there by his side with encouraging words. Doc always celebrated May 7th with a phone call to the captain. We sure loved those calls most of all! The world would be a much better place if we had more people like Doc. Our lives were truly blessed by knowing him. He will be missed, even though we know he is in a better place. We are thankful for our time together and our hope is that one day our paths will cross again. To Bonnie and the entire family, we offer our sincere condolences as you move forward and hold close all the memories that will remain in your hearts forever. Cheers to Doc always and forever.!

We pray God's comfort and strength for Bonnie Sue and all of the family. We know Duane will be greatly missed. We remember fondly when Duane and Bonnie Sue took us camping at Redfish Lake near Stanley, Idaho; we remember Tom and Duane swimming in the glacial waters in the early morning hours -- Brr!
