What a shock to learn of this terrible tragedy. My daughter Alexis played soccer with Kara while the parents 'hung out'. What a special family. We are so sorry for your loss. Our hearts and prayers are with you at this time of grief and pain. All our love and support, Ken & Kristie Facto

Our family is deeply saddened of hearing that this tragedy was someone we knew. Doug was the youngest of the Menegos brothers. They lived around the block in our Brookside neighborhood. Although we all went our separate ways, in life, we could never forget the childhood memories we, in Brookside, shared. Our hearts go out to the Menegos family. While there is nothing we can say to ease your pain, our hope is that you draw comfort in knowing that many are mourning your loss. Rest in Peace, Doug. The Cohen Family.

I believe because Doug was a IBEW Electrician the Menegos family will receive a 12,500 benefit. Although this will not replace Doug's priceless life, it should help with immediate expenses. I personally did not know Doug but loosing and IBEW brother hurts the same. I spoke with many union and non-union electricians today that knew him and his character was described clearly in their emotions for Doug. Prayers to the Menegos Family.

I dont think that we had seen him since High School, but some people make an empression on your life. Doug did that. My Prayers for his Family.

My heartfelt condolences on your loss. I had the pleasure of interfacing with Doug as he carried about his business with the Field Engineering office at the City of San Diego. Doug was very well thought of in our Field Engineering 'family', as an honest and hard working individual; a true Professional .... as well as just an all around great guy. He will be missed.
