Sad news Mick.....sorry to hear. I bought a couple things from Doug when he did Michigan Gas years ago. Since I don't sell anything I still have the Texaco plates, I'll remember him when I look at them.

My dad Mike Trotnic, Parsons KS, passed away back in 2015. He wasnt a member here but quite active in buying and selling antiques throughout most of his life. He didn't understand the internet and just prior to his passing did he acquire a smart phone but loved face to face deals.

So sorry to hear of Doug's passing. I talked with him a lot thru the years and really enjoyed our conversations! He was a very knowledgeable collector.

Never met the man Mick but certainly read and valued his opinions. He will be missed on this site.

So SAD about Doug's passing news.

When I joined the site in 2008, I was patient with the "Veteran" members since I was a "newbie" & mainly read discussions amongst "Veteran members". Learned from my toy
experience to NEVER confront a "Veteran" member unless had solid facts to back myself.

Right away, I noticed Doug was one of those "super" veteran members with great wealth of knowledge (Texaco). it was amazing to see professional discussions between Doug & DB.

During a post about "Rotating globe holders", Dough mentioned he knew a person that made them. I sent him a PM & Doug gladly offered one to me. Whoever made the rotater, did a great job.

I loved Doug's attitude when asking him questions about TEXACO privately. Doug loved to answer my Q's & shared photos of his friend's collection with me. Killer collection!

He will be greatly missed!

Dave,

Thanks for mentioning : Mr Ron Carey! He was a true legend that contributed so much for Museums in CANADA for future generations to enjoy.

Personally, I do not get enough of the photos of the Calgary museum. A visit is a must.

I have seen a picture of Ron with Tom Schilling of San Diego (man, his collection is amazing).

Would love to hear stories from Tom about his friendship with Ron.
