classmates in his home in Kensington for their 55 th class reunion. Shortly after high school graduation,
Doug went to work for the feed mill in Kensington and then went to work with Thaine Larson at his
registered hog farm. From there he went on to Ionia, KS to work at Rose Pork productions, then the
feed yards near Mankato, KS. After being injured and disabled and finally retiring, Doug moved back
to Kensington, what had been his parents’ home. Because of severe illness, he moved to Lincoln to be
closer to his kids.
Doug was such a likeable guy. He loved his animals, the farm, and just the great outdoors.
