Doug, Ken and Roger worked for three different companies but all at Toyota. Doug stayed with us for about three months while Toyota was being constructed. In that short time, he became our brother. Dougy would come home absolutely black, while the other two didn't have a spec on them. We all knew who worked harder, but they gave him a hard time anyways. The camaraderie, the laughs, the jokes, the serious work discussions, the quizzes to see who was smarter and quicker with the answers, Joe Loui's and Coke, the night supper was pasta and shrimp and Dougy got special steak because I didn't know he was deathly allergic to shell fish, the dog constantly getting out on him, having to go get him in his car and then getting lost, Crabby Joe's, beer and pool with Roger. We really miss him

— Ken, Deb and Roger, May 28, 2008
