Douglas Day Moscrip was born September 14, 1938 to Walter "Bud" and Avis Day Moscrip in Glenns Ferry, Idaho. During World War II Doug moved with his family to Las Vegas, Nevada and Lompoc, California where his sister was born. The family later moved back to Idaho where Doug graduated from Fruitland High School.
After leaving Fruitland Doug moved to Salt Lake City and earned degrees from the University of Utah in both Pharmacy and Law. It was at school where Doug met and married Patricia Bair. They moved to California with their young daughter and welcomed a son. While living in California Doug and Pat built a successful Law Practice. After the death of Doug's Dad the decision was made to move back to Idaho.
While in Idaho Doug and Pat expanded their family to include three more children. Doug returned to his career in Pharmacy where over the next thirty years he owned and operated several different drug stores in the Northwest. Doug later partnered with three of his children to build and develop the Internet Truckstop, D&S Factors and M&D Farms.
After the passing of his wife in 2000 he married Elizabeth "Betty" Gailband. Doug and Betty have resided in Fruitland for the past 20 years.
