Did you know him? I did, he was my friend and a good man. Yes, he had his demons and in the end they got the best of him. To say he's "in hell" is as ignorant and offensive as this write up itself. You did not know the man, and even if you did, who are you to judge him?

Amanda and Steve, im very sorry for your loss! I listened to the events unfold and desperately prayed for him to get through this. It pains me to think about the pain he was going through! If only he knew that "this too shall pass".

But please understand that these "regulars" on here that make these ignorant comments are just sick people and do not reflect the views of the majority.

RIP Doug

I have to agree with that. I'm a regular on here, and I'm obviously sick.

I had known Doug for more than two decades. He was a great guy. He was an ER nurse since last year. Doug's life kind of changed course about five years ago after his infant son died of SIDS. Since then, his goal was to help people. He was passionate, I'd say; not a hothead. I don't know what happened Saturday night but there are so many conflicting versions on various news sites - few people know the truth about it other than that Doug is dead by his own hand. A lot of people are going to miss him, including his girlfriend. It's a sad day in Fairfield
