If more priests were like Fr. Doug the Catholic Churches would be overflowing. When I was in Fr Doug's presence I new God loved me and forgave me for whatever I had done wrong.

We belong to St. Bernard's Parish and enjoyed Msgr. Dushack sermons. Our family will forever be grateful to Monsignor Dushack. With his gentle words and presence, Msgr. Dushack became a part of our family and guided my parents as they faced my father's chronic illness, decline, and passing. Father Doug remained a source of reassurance to my mother and I cannot say enough how thankful we are to him. I will not be able to pay my respect in person. He is in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to your family.

Loving care is extended to you, Doug"s family and friends...Doug and I served together years ago on the priest personnel board...He brought wisdom and good humor to this difficult board. He remains in my memory for that and for many times we touched each other's lives...I will be celebrating Mass Thursday at St Mary Hospital at the same time as you gather for Dougs' funeral Mass...We join together "following love into mystery." Peace FTD/F.Tom Doheny

We were parishioners at St Albert's when Msgr Dushack came to us. We have been SO blessed by his saintliness and wonderful sermons. We are out of state, so we will sadly miss the visitation & funeral. He will be missed GREATLY!

Fr. Dushack served at St. Henry's Catholic Church in Watertown, WI when I was in grade school in the early to mid 80s. I have fond memories of him then. He was very caring, jovial, and gregarious. He delivered some of the best sermons I can remember by relating the gospel to everyday life in a way that was engaging and relevant. I attended mass and went to confession with him decades later at St. Bernard's in Middleton before seeing him at St. Albert's until recently. He will be missed. May he rest in blessed peace, now with God.

Sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Father Dushack. I remember him from when we were children, church services, holy communions, baptisms, weddings and funerals. A compassionate, caring man with a sense of humor.

May he Rest In Peace with the Lord now.

Dennis & Dushack Family,
I want to express my sympathy & prayers in the loss of your brother Fr Doug. I had the privilege to work with him at St Bernard's in Middleton as his front desk secretary.

Monsignor Doug was my priest for several years & performed my marriage ceremony & my fathers funeral. He was such a kind & soft spoken man. His wisdom was always underplayed by his humble & quiet demeanor. I will forever hold him in the highest esteem as a man & a man of God. Rest In Peace Monsignor. You will be missed.
