Doug was an avid sports fan and loved his Iowa Hawkeyes. He also enjoyed family time, especially having in-depth conversations with his nieces and nephews.

Doug is survived by three brothers, Scott (Mary) Weekly of Chelsea, Brian (Brenda) Weekly of Center Point and Dan (Joni) Weekly of Fairfax; and one sister, Barb (Craig) Selk of Van Horne. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and nephews.
