Remembering Doug Braget


With heavy hearts, we remember our dear friend, Doug Braget. He passed away on June 20th, 2023 after a battle with COPD due to COVID. He was a family man, a hard worker, and dedicated to his community. We met Doug when he started cutting firewood on Ueland Tree Farm in 2012. Since then, he became an unofficial warden, diligently helping keep the tree farm and its 80,000+ yearly visitors safe. He and his faithful dog, Holly, would spend time in the office with us to chat and grab candy whenever he felt his blood sugar running low. We loved hearing about the ball games he would watch his grandkids play; he would regularly tell us how much he enjoyed spending time with his family. He will be missed at Ueland Tree Farm/Kitsap Quarry, but his memory and how he affected each of us lives on. Thank you, and Rest in Peace, Doug Braget.
