Smith, Douglas W. (1 Dec 1973 – 10 Jun 1921)

Douglas Warren Smith, born December 1, 1973, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 47 in his home on June 10, 2021.

Doug attended Abbotsford High School. Growing up, Doug loved to go camping with his family at Lake Holcombe, enjoyed collecting and trading sports cards, and yodeling freely for all to hear as he skied down Powder Horn Mountain in Michigan. His life revolved around watching sports events and talking about sports with anyone who would listen. Doug enjoyed attending local sports games, bowling, attending summer concerts in the park and doing puzzles. He looked forward to going out for lunches and dinners to Sammie’s Pizza with his parents and spending time with his dear friends at St. Stephen Lutheran Church.

Doug is survived by his parents, James and Diane Smith; four siblings: Kelly Bertelsen (Daniel), Chad Smith (Lori), Rebecca Thom (Dave) and Jay Smith (Trish). He is also survived by his nieces and nephews: Ashley Green (Trace), David Socha (Lauren), Amanda Green (Eric), Adam Green, Braxton Smith, Lane Thom, Cassidy Smith and Calvin Smith.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Warren and Delores Marquand; paternal grandparents, Orval and Mary Smith; and godfather, Todd Winchell. Isaiah 40:31 …but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

A private funeral service will be held at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Wausau, for immediate family and Doug’s church family.
