Doug’s favorite thing to do was to fix things. If it was broken, he was the guy to call, his motto was “No job too big, no job too small”. His biggest battle was with Leukemia which he overcame. He worked as a mechanic at several places and was always willing to help anyone who needed him. He loved to restore old cars and bikes and had a passion for anything fast and fun. He spent a majority of his free time making precious memories with his family and friends. He especially loved the time spent on his motorcycles with his wife, family and friends.

He is survived by his wife, Lonna; daughters, Kendra Schroeder and Kelly (Dakota) Sorgatz; grandchildren, Jose Jr., Carlos, Miguel, Brooklyn, and Brynlee; mother, Ruth Majeski; sister, Lisa Johnson; brothers, Blaine Schroeder, Troy (Amy) Jensen, and Chad (Misty) Jensen; nieces and nephews, Nick, Angie, Kasey, Brooke, Tyler, Dylan, Christina, Andrew, Brittany, Annie, and Damion; and special family friend, Alex Hernandez; many aunts, uncles and cousins.
