  • Notes 
    • Here is a photo of Doug just before he died. He was working on our mothers house after Hurricane Katrina. Our part of the country was tore up by this hurricane and still is a mess. Doug worked real hard to repair our mothers home. The other photo is here in Niceville we have a memorial park and we put this plaque up in honor of Doug. Doug called himself "Houskat" a lot of people knew him by that name. Most of his work tools ect had "Houskat" carved in them. (From an email from Julie Suzanne about her brother, date Oct 2, 2007,

    • Doug was married for a short time. I looked for the dates and cannot find them. He was married to a Kimberly Andrews for about three years they were married and divorced in Jackson County Mississippi. Yes we pronounce our name like "ou" in house, Doug was called house cat would of been the way he pronounced it but wrote it "Houskat". Every one of my brothers work with their hands. Scott is a mechanic, Donnie is a ship fitter. I am so glad you liked the photo of Doug it showed him doing what he loved. Thank you again.
