To say Doane was a great person is such an understatement. No words could describe him properly. We had the honor of knowing and loving Doane and making him a part of our family. My husband met him while fishing and immediately they became friends, he then began working for my mother-in-law and eventually came to work for us at the End Zone where he was respected and loved by many. He took on the role of Captain on our pool team and did so for many years. Such a kind soul with a heart of Gold, great sense of humor and outstanding work ethic. I remember hooking him while fishing and he just looked at me and said “don’t feel bad, it happens” – he removed the hook and continued to fish. 🙂 We had many adventures together and he also honored my husband and I by being in our wedding. When he left PA to move back to Ohio we missed him very much but knew he had more important obligations. We honored you all weekend at the End Zone Doane and many of your friends stopped to do so as well. We had your favorite beverage and even some buckeyes that I made. (I remember your face when I first made them for you) We will miss him very much and we send Peace and Comfort to his family.

Deepest sympathies to his family and friends! Doane was a great pool player and awesome bartender! Worked with him at the Ridge, shot pool with him!! My fondest memory one busy night behind the bar, I said to him, those two are going to fight! He smiled and said, you stay at the register, planted both hands on the bar, vaulted over it and politely escorted both guys outside to settle their differences! I was impressed with his athlete abilities and smooth handling of it!! Great to work with behind the bar or as a patron! Cherish your good memories, great guy and will be missed. Peace and prayers to his wife, family and friends.
