Doug was born February 25th, 1944, and graduated from Wayne Central with the Class of '61. He was a car enthusiast his entire life, from playing "chicken" with his dad's car as a teen to becoming a mechanic, watching NASCAR, stock car races and car auctions. Doug always loved to go for a long drive. He felt fortunate to have married Barbara Birmingham née Smith, his first wife. He enjoyed snowmobiling and his dogs.
In 1997 Doug married his high school sweetheart, Judy Knapp née Wacenske. They spent many happy years together, achieving their dream of buying a home in Florida, near his nephew, Dan Wooster. Doug especially liked barbecues and Steger Haus meals surrounded by his friends and family. Doug Wooster was friendly and kind and we will all miss him.
