It is with both tears and smiles that we write this tribute to our friend, Doug Long, who lost his 18-month fight against leukemia on November 29, 2017 at his home in Gig Harbor, surrounded by his loving family. Tears, because we miss him. Smiles because he brought such joy to so many people, including us.
Washington state’s wine industry lost a great man and we lost a friend. Doug was so warm, welcoming, gracious and passionate, with a wonderful smile and lots of entertaining stories to share.
