Doug passed away unexpectedly November 4, 2011 of cardiac and respiratory problems at a hospital in Morelia, Mexico, near the city he called his home, Patzcuaro, Mexico with his sisters by his side.

He had friends and acquaintances all over the world and definitely lived life on his own terms.

He is now flying high, no longer tied to a body that was failing him and surely enjoying new adventures every day.
