Douglas H. Damm

October 2, 1948 — June 18, 2023

Roseville, MN

Age 74 of Roseville, MN passed into Eternal Life on Sunday June 18, 2023, after a long hospitalization. Doug was born October 2,1948 in Marshfield WI to Evelyn Louise (née Marti) and Harold Frank Damm. He grew up in Stetsonville, WI, went to Medford High school and graduated in 1966. In Stetsonville he worked for the Damm Family sawmill.  He was the lead singer in a band as a youngster, ran track and was a practical jokester.

Following graduation, he went to Wausau Tech and after marriage he attended UW Stout and graduated in 1972 with a BA in Business Administration. In 1978 he took a job at Ryder Truck Rental where he worked in sales and leasing until his retirement in 2013 after 35 years. Doug was a very hard worker and was the recipient of many top sales awards.

As his kids grew up, he was very involved. He helped them with projects, ran lights for his sons’ band shows and he was known to accompany them to rock concerts. He had a celebratory, fun nature which came out in decorating over the top for Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day.

In the 1980s, Doug and his family joined a Charismatic Prayer Group where he took up guitar. The prayer group catapulted his faith. It has grown especially more in recent years and has shown through his times of praying with us and giving us encouraging faith filled thoughts for our families.

Doug enjoyed attending his grandkids’ sporting events, getting ready for “Grandpa’s Christmas” and for his crazy 4th of July extraordinary fireworks displays.  He was a Vikings fan, liked documentaries, Sci Fi and staying up on Current Events.

Doug was known for his generosity, patience, cheerful spirit, loyalty, thoughtfulness, having a great sense of humor, dedication, being a hard worker and his faith in God.

Doug is preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his 4 children, Stephanie (Scott) Witzel, Greg (Sarah) Damm, Jeff (Janet) Damm and Angela (David) Babish; grandchildren Kaile (Ari), Adaline, Charlie, Ruby, Freddy, Anna, Olivia, Lucia, Veronica, Luke, Joseph, Elliot, Micah, Ben, Bernadette, and Miriam; siblings, Sharon (Gene) Thiedi, Sheila (Don) Hamann and Dorine Damm (Bryan Johnson). The mother of his children Teddi Walters also survives Doug as well as nieces, nephews, extended relatives, friends, special friend Mary Wojtowicz and her children, and grandchildren.

A special thank you to the ICU staff at St. John’s Hospital in Maplewood, MN and Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul for their care for Doug and kindness to our family.
