He was blessed to be the proud Father of Jim (Simone), Jackie (Ed), and Jeffrey (John). He was the cherished Grandfather of Jake Bugarsky (Isabella), Jarod Kuhn, Evan Kuhn, and Josh Bugarsky (Hanna). Predeceased by his parents, Grace and Stuart Kuhn and his only sibling, Nancy Brenner.
The grandchildren called him Grandpa Tick Tick as he had approximately 30 clocks in his Man Refuge. Doug enjoyed repairing and fixing practically anything including the clocks.
Doug was a Tool & Die Maker/Designer. He had many other interests: genealogy, hunting, Waterloo Historical Society, Elmira Amateur (Ham) Radio Club, magic club, bonsai, gardening, and in recent years the R.O.M.E.O. breakfast club.
Special thanks to Drs. Gino and Daniel Pannozzo and their team, and to Dr. Day, along with all the caring staff of the 7th floor, St. Mary’s Hospital.
At Doug’s request there will be no visitation; cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, March 11, at 11:00 a.m. at Gale Presbyterian Church, 10 Barnswallow Drive, Elmira, with Rev. Reuben St. Louis officiating. A luncheon will follow. A private family interment will follow at a later date. Live streaming of the service available at www.youtube.com/c/galepresbyterian/live.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Gale Presbyterian Church or the Cardiac Care Unit at St. Mary’s Hospital would be appreciated.

Doug has the final word: “This is VE3 CXU saying 73 SK.”
