I would like to send our condolences to Ann Marie Harris and all family members of both of you. Doug and I have put down many tiles together, many countertops, shower installation, remodels, had many laughs, discussions, disagreements , But we never walked away mad, held any grudges or resentment towards one another. Our friendship will forever be bonded in stone, around Vancouver and surrounding area! Rest in peace Doug my friend. I love you my Brotha! GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

Doug ,What a friend .The day at Toyota.The days the gym playing basketball on Sunday nights. Then late in the evenings out in front of the house playing basketball after you and Travis worked out. You guys trash talking each other for Bentos. The most fun was working out you and Kenny and Travis specially when you would go tell Kenny to get the BenGay on lets go. As the hours the gym turn in the years to the gym and both you and Kenny watched Travis become Atlanta Falcons first pick in the draft 2000. The patients that Ann Marie had plus always being so respectful and bringing people around and sharing you at your family to bring Reilly and I to your outings after Travis even passed. If it hadnt been for you and Kenny the trip to the NFL wouldve been much harder for Travis you definitely have him ready when he got the college to start a true freshman for the USC Trojans 50 starts. Im sure youre working out again with T as you call him. He has been waiting for you 14 years . By the way Kenny still putting on BenGay.To the Harris family Ann Marie Mr. H and Johnny I know your hearts are hurting. RIP Doug once again thank you for all the help see you again someday hello to 71

I had the pleasure to meet and get to know Doug while he was working
for Toyota in Portland. Soon realized that two of his passions were hitting the gym and his interest in nice cars, which were mine also. There were times that we would get together with one of our good friends Travis Claridge and go workout at Golds gym in Portland. Just last summer he called me and told me about a 1969 Camaro that he had just purchased, and how excited he was with all the different things he was going to do to the car. That big smile and continuous laughter are things that I will always remember about Doug. My sincerest thoughts go out to Dougs wife Ann Marie and family. RIP Buddy
