Memorial Tributes

"Can't believe he's been gone this long, we were cousin's only a year apart, and when we were real young I use to love it when my parents would drive us from where we lived in Massachusetts to where he lived in Massachusetts it was either Leverett or Shutesbury, anyway I remember we would play outside. There was alot of woods around. It was nice.  Lots of family, a long time ago, makes me miss everyone that's gone.  Makes me cry.  I do miss you Doug"

"I was saddened by this news. I worked with Doug for 11 years on the AAA World and Car & Travel magazines as production manager. There were many sides to Doug, but I mostly remember him as a brilliant man, good leader, and motivator.  I learned much about publishing from Doug, and have many fond memories of the things we accomplished at AAA."

"Doug was a big Lincoln fan and living in Springfield, I see Lincoln things everywhere. I park a block from Lincoln's house. So, it isn't unusual for me to think about Doug and wish I could take him around town. I always had the greatest times with him and he was always very kind to me. I enjoyed the photos and they really bring back memories! Thank you for creating this web site. Knowing there is a place I can go to remember this great guy is a real comfort."

""Congratulations on completing another trip around the sun," Doug would often say whenever someone celebrated a birthday. He didn't quite make it to his 65th birthday, but I don't doubt for a minute that he somehow completed his trip. Happy Heavenly Birthday, my love."

"I worked with Doug Damerst at AAA 20+ years ago. He was a mentor, a friend and the reason I left AAA to become Publisher for Tow Times magazine. As he told me, better to be a big fish in a little pond than a little fish in a big pond. I have never forgotten his wisdom. Thank you Doug."
