Picture taken in La Reforma restaurant, Merida, in 2010.

We lost one of our more colorful characters a few days ago and we will miss him. He adored his wife, Sally. We will especially miss his presence at our Tuesday Lunch Group. He was a businessman, almost a lawyer, and early in life, a hat check boy at the Copacabana in New York. At one time he owned racehorses. Doug was multi-dimensional. It’s a surprise to learn that he had master bridge points. Doug told a lot of stories and he loved to play the horses.

If you want to contact Sally, please contact this website or write to -beryl@gorbman.com-. (Don’t include the dashes.)
