I asked if Doug was still CEO and when he told me of his passing, it literally took my breath away. I had no idea and was deeply saddened at the news.

Doug was the finest CEO of any board on which I ever participated. His leadership was not only successful, he treated his volunteers with care and respect. Doug is missed.

I am shocked to hear of the passing of Mr. Samuels. I worked in the main office in Melbourne for just a few years but felt like I was a member of his family at all times as he always remembered my name and that I used to work very close to him while living in California.
A very kind person who will be missed and my deepest sympathies to his family.
A true tragedy for them as well as Space Coast Credit Union.

My Uncle Doug and Aunt Linda and i when i was an infant  1983

I'm just heart broken to hear my Uncle Doug has passed. He was such a wonderful man. He was always so fun, and kind to my brother and i growing up and even my mother. I always wished I would see him again, that he'd be at my wedding along with the entire family... time is just too precious to put moments off. Before we know it, the chances pass.

My prayers go out to my family. I

I was one of the many people who worked with Doug. He and I worked together for over 20 years, he with Space Coast and me with Fiserv.
I remember the first time I spent quality time with Doug was at a conference in Baltimore. I was new to my job, and Doug, true to the person he was, took the time to listen to me and share his perspectives as well.
Through the years, I got to know him well.

My sincerest condolences to the Samuels Family. It was my pleasure to have worked with Doug at SCCU thru SpaceServ. He was the most inspiring, calm, patient and caring man I have worked with. He always had time to listen and care for your well being. His guidance was without question, always looking out for the best in everyone and SCCU. I know he will be sorely missed at SCCU. His legacy will live on thru this work, family and his temple family. God bless and may you Rest In Peace Doug.
