Doug married Marlene Jacobs of Eads March 25, 1972. Their family increased by three with the birth of daughter Kelli, and sons Chad and John. The couple later divorced.

Doug lived in Denver and Longmont, where he worked as a carpenter and in maintenance. When his health started to fail, he moved back to Eads to be closer to his children.
