Born in Canton, OH on August 13, 1961, he was a son of Maxine (Troxell) Daniluk and the late Paul Daniluk.
Doug was a graduate of Perry Local High School, Massillon, OH, Class of 1979. He attended the University of Akron and then began a 20 year career with Iron City Sash and Door until their closing.

Doug was an avid Ohio State football fan and model railroader. He loved his family and enjoyed visits home to Ohio. He especially looked forward to a pizza from Pizza Oven.
