The family moved to Woodward in 1936, where Doug attended school. He graduated from Oklahoma Military Academy in 1949, and attended Oklahoma State University and received his degree in 1954. He was united in marriage to Ann “Karen” Williams on July 15, 1954 and was inducted into the United States Air Force in 1954 and served his country in Korea and was honorably discharged in 1957, at which time he and Karen made their home in Woodward, Oklahoma. Doug owned and operated Laubhan Motors in Woodward for a number of years and was a long time member of the First Presbyterian Church. Doug enjoyed riding motorcycles and restoring motor homes, but most of all he loved being with his grandchildren, and loved spending time with his friends and family.
