We are deeply sadded by the loss of Doug. He was a good friend and like a second father to me and my the Koranda siblings. I can still remember Doug and Larry sitting around the table having coffee and enjoying life just like it was yesterday. Our deepest sympathy to Judy Doug and Danny and the entire family. We will never forget the the great times and friendship. With deepest admiration for a great man! Kathleen (Koranda) and Jim Haasch and Family
