Helped me many times even on a Sunday and I only ever purchased fuel pumps from him.  :(  I feel sad if this is true, but heard it from someone else as well.

Genuinely nice guy that could dish it out at the same time and didn’t mind helping people.

RIP thoughts and prayers to his family.

Oh man. I feel awful for his family. Doug seemed like a straight shooter. I always enjoyed hearing what he had to say.

Terrible news. Makes me sick thinking about the loss for his family.

Please update the original post if anyone becomes aware of a gofundme.

Words cannot convey my thoughts right now.

 

He was such a nice guy and knew the GTR forwards and backwards.  He will be missed.

 

I was waiting for the COVID-19 thing to get over so he could come out and finish fixing the trans on my car he put in last year.  Wow, what a blow to the GTR community.  Sad day indeed.

While this is very sad news, I can't say I'm that surprised either.  He has been doing these high speed tunes for years, and one of them finally snuck up and got him.  I think you start to think nothing will happen to you when you are so familiar with a car, but these levels of power are crazy dangerous.  That wreck looks really bad.  They must have been going really fast when the wreck happened.

He was my tuner. I’m going to miss his insight, experience, sarcasm and commitment as my tuner.

Massive loss to our community.

Such sad news! Doug was the first guy to work on my car and tune it. He was always nice to me. My deepest sympathies go out to his family.
