Doug spent his entire life on the family farm. His knowledge of ‘three-day’ Dawn Clay was certainly put to use at planting and harvesting time. He took pleasure in looking after his cattle. His mechanical ability was useful on farm machinery. Doug worked hard, had a good sense of humour and enjoyed life.
