Many of us in the business/economic development community have taken this pretty hard. Doug was a great guy. Smart, experienced and generous with his time, Doug helped more than hundreds of companies. His class and goodwill helped hundreds more in the wider community.
WESST has planned a Celebration of Doug's life for this coming Tuesday - and they've set up a fund for entrepreneurs in his name. Learn more at: http://wesst.org/workshop/a-celebration-of-doug-lees-life
I'm so sorry to hear this. Thank you for sharing this. My condolences go out to his loved ones. I'm sure he blessed many people throughout his life and has left many fruits throughout the community that will blossom and grow because of him.
