He was born to Louis James and Thelda Kay Bowers in Salt Lake City, Utah.
He enjoyed traveling with his wife, hanging out at his cabin, and his yearly trips to Lake Powell. Doug’s wild and goofy personality attracted many people over the years. His good hearted nature led to many long lasting relationships that he valued til the day he died.
He served in many capacities in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Some of his favorite callings were in the Boy Scouts, Elder’s Quorum and as Young Men’s President.
He started his company from the ground up and was very successful. Building his own company allowed him to work alongside his boys, which was his ultimate goal and dream. But his proudest achievement was his family.
Doug’s first marriage blessed him with his first son, Matthew.
In 1996, he met and married the love of his life, Dina Dodenbier, they were sealed in the Bountiful Temple on August 29th, 1998. Together they had four additional boys.
