He was a very loyal fan of the Orange football and basketball teams. Doug married Lydia M Mignano on October 25, 1952. Their 68 years of marriage was a loving and devoted union, admired and cherished by their 3 children. Doug took over the family business, Beers and Warfield after his father died in 1959. He was the third generation to run the business. In 1974, he sold the business, so he and Lydia could devote their time to their great love of antiques. They had an antique shop, "Pheasant Hill Antiques," which they ran for many years until they retired to Florida in 1991. They lived in Clearwater, Florida until last April 2020, when Doug's declining health and Covid, forced them to come live with their daughter Kathy and her husband Mike in Homer. Doug was predeceased by his parents, his sister, Mildred Warfield Wilcox, his brother in law, Paul E Wilcox and nephew, Brian Wilcox.
