I studied english under Doug, I graduated in 1975. It isn't mentioned here that he played with a well known band before they became famous...he left he said, because he thought there was no future.

We had the privilege and pleasure of joining Doug and his children for many happy celebrations when our son, Jason, married Doug's daughter, Gina. Those happy occasions included wedding celebrations, birthday celebrations, holidays, and family times in his home, our home, and others. During those times we learned to appreciate his culinary expertise along with his enjoyment of being with family. We enjoyed his stories of growing up in the Bay Area, his musical endeavors and interests, and of course, his beloved Colombo Club. He will be missed. We send our love to all those who loved him

Many fond memories of Mr. Emeldi as he was my leadership teacher at DLS. I hope I do his memory proud as I continue my own career in education as I have him as a role model. I even got to have some of his peppers and sausage one visit to the Colombo Club. Rest In Peace and my love to his family.
