Remembering Doug Fortier

Doug was not known for his tolerance of fools or poor service. One night, a group of us had dinner down in Noyo Harbor. The restaurant was crowded and our glasses emptied. No wait person responded to our frantic waving. Doug picked up his phone and called the restaurant. The front desk answered. Doug said, “Do you think we could get some wine back here?” Startled, the desk person looked around. Doug waved. A waiter appeared, followed shortly by wine. Doug got stuff done.
