"Everything we did revolved around their sports schedules," Laura explained.

And, Douglas loved every minute of it. In fact, according to family and friends, he loved life.

"He was super funny," Laura said.

"His whole family has the best sense of humor ever."

"Just as he loved people, he was loved by people," said Colton Irving, pastor of the 360 Church of Petaluma where Douglas attended church and was a member of the Men's Fraternity.

An outpouring of that love can be seen on Douglas' Facebook Page.

Wrote friend Kevin McCallum: "Not just an empty expression or exaggeration to say perhaps the nicest and genuinely kindest man I've ever met. And I think everything you need to know about him is reflected in what impressive and exceptional young men his sons are."

Douglas was the brother of David (Pamela) Douglas of Santa Rosa, Tammy (Chris) Immer of Washington, Bethany (Paul) Schwappachy of San Diego, Tom (Samantha) Young of Sonoma, Russell (Bob Needham) Young of Santa Rosa and David (Audrey) Young of Vallejo. He was the son of Sharon and Charles Young of Petaluma and the late Roland Douglas and the grandson of Ellarene and Ben Young of Novato.

He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

"A Celebration of Life," will be held on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. at the 360 Church of Petaluma, 879 Lindberg Lane.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to www.youcaring.com/waynedouglasmemorialfund.
