    I, for one, am very happy that Vance was there. Doug is a long long time friend of mine, and we'd have lost a great man.

  • I moved away a couple of years ago. What happened to Doug?

    Doug was at the Optiimist Park, and was running to help someone else, when he apparently had a heart attack, and basically 'died'.

    Doug himself called it "sudden death" ...very scary. Without Vance there, Doug would now be dead.
