Douglas A Doctor

January 17, 1952 ~ December 4, 2020 (age 68)


Douglas Arthur Doctor, Our beloved Doug (68) passed away Friday, December 4, 2020 at Glenbrook Rehab Center in Fort Wayne.  He was the son of Eugene (deceased) and Betty Doctor.  Doug is survived by his mother, Betty Doctor and siblings: Lynn (Jackie) Doctor, Greg (Celena) Doctor, Becky (Dan) Greenwood, Debbie Wenzel (Martin Hegerfeld) and Gina (Brian) Kiess.  He is also survived by 8 nieces: Theresa Wenzel, Amanda (Phil) Henry, Jennifer Wenzel, Maggie Doctor, Bethany Kiess, Holly Kiess, Skylar Kiess, Elly Kiess; 7 nephews: Mason (Janet) Storm, Robert Doctor, Zack Doctor, Jonathan (Sarah) Wenzel, Adam Bowman, Jake Litherland, Joseph (Hannah) Doctor; 6 great nieces: Alyssa Doctor, Katie Storm, Jenna Doctor, Madison Storm, Sierra Doctor, Melia Wenzel; and 3 great nephew: Paul Wenzel, Axel Litherland, Dash Litherland.  Doug graduated from Heritage High School in 1970 and enjoyed working with his father driving dump trucks.  Later Doug drove taxi cabs and did that for several years.  He enjoyed life and after he moved to Glenbrook called Mom daily, and sometimes several times a day, to report what he had to eat - he almost always loved whatever food was made for him there.  He mowed Mom and Dad’s lawn and fixed whatever need fixing.  He brought pizza to Christmas dinners which the kids, especially, were grateful for.  He was very generous giving everything he ever had away - even stuff other people loaned him that he promised not to give away.  He also was incredibly lucky at cards and usually won everything we ever played with him.  He was loved deeply and will be greatly missed by everyone. A Celebration of Life service for Doug is planned for a later date.  In the meantime, we ask that you hold him with love and prayers in your heart.   Please share your memories of Doug on this site.   If desired, memorials may be made to Emmanuel Lutheran Church (Soest) on Wayne Trace.
