Doug was a lifelong resident of Brewer and worked for more than 30 years as a machine tender at Eastern Fine Paper. Doug was very passionate about biking and playing his drums. He was the drummer of “Wildwoods Band”. He was happiest while “jamming” all over the state of Maine, but his heart belonged to Knights of Columbus Hall in Lincoln.

He was predeceased by his parents and by two sisters, Virginia and Mary Elaine. He will be remembered by best friends, Ron and Linda Rines and will be missed by many.
A celebration of Doug’s life will be held at a later date. Arrangements by Kiley & Foley Funeral Service, 69 State St., Brewer. Messages and memories may be shared with his family on the tribute wall of kileyandfoley.com.
