I am saddened to hear of the passing of Doug Samuels. I was an employee of Space Coast Credit Union for 15 years and as noted he made a note to know our names and faces.. He was an awesome leader and a humble man who walked with humbleness and meekness, and a humble quietness about him. May you take comfort in knowing to be absent from the body is to be present with Lord.. Praying for the Lord to strengthen your hearts

Elisabeth and I were stunned and saddened to learn of Doug's passing. I will truly miss him.
Doug had the ability to make me laugh uncontrollably, often to my embarrassment. I had undergone surgery to remove a tumor from my throats and Doug came to the hospital to check on me. He had me in - and almost out of my - stitches.
Although we didn't get together as often as we'd like, I so enjoyed our yearly chats, and catching up on our families.
God bless you, Linda, and all the children.
Brian and Elisabeth Shaver

When I walked in to SCCU this morning, I was talking to the teller and told him if my years of working at SCCU...
