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.

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 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.

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!

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. He was one of a kind and a man who lived life to the vows he took in the priesthood in loving & serving the Lord & sherparding his flock. In the few years I had the honor to work for him he talked highly of his family & he shared many stories. His dog Benji, the daily Jumbo puzzle, his afternoon rosary walks,fighting with his computer to have it do what he wanted , his reliable typewriter, trips to his trailer, changing his hairstyle from perm to straight, sharing old fashion drinks & getting to visit with him on trips he made to Florida are many memories I have and will cherish. May you all fine peace and comfort knowing he at rest in the hands of his maker.

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.

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.

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.
