On behalf of the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament committee located in Allegany County MD, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Doug's family and friends. Doug came here for many years in early March to referee our high school basketball tournament to help the Developmentally Disabled. He gave up his time and talents for a great cause. He was not only very well liked by his referee fraternity, he was chosen by the coaches from the Baltimore-Washington area on multiple occasions to officiate the Championship game. Although Doug was unable to officiate this past March due to his illness, he made it a point to come visit us for the final night of the tournament. We will miss his wonderful smile and he was a true gentlemen.
