Ross & I were so deeply saddened to hear of Dougie's passing. He always made us laugh & was such a special guy who we will always remember. I will always remember him telling the story of how he met Moira's friend who he thought was going to be Carl & ended up being Carol. Love, Missy

My cousin Doug was the last of the Lansing family historian. I loved listening to his stories of his Mom and my Dad, Bernice and Frank and our grandparents Theresa and Frank. You will be missed. God bless and give our family a hug in heaven.

Doug, You will be so missed by us. Your knowledge of music, history, bands and almost anything else was just amazing. We will especially miss your joke telling even if we heard the same ones over again. God rest your soul in heaven with Him, We will really miss you. Love, Phyl & Vinnie
