In his younger years, Doug was employed by Powers Auto Sales, Sherman’s Machine Shop and was the Owner/Operator of the Honda Dealership in Moorefield. Later in his years he worked for Mathias and Associates as an insurance agent. His real enjoyment and passion was working and driving vintage cars of which he had numerous.
