Douglas Neisen, 53
Douglas Neisen, age 53, of Farmington, Minn., died Wednesday, Sept. 11. His family and friends knew of his long battle with depression, which ultimately took his life. He is now finally at peace with God, and many others, in heaven.
The happiest years of Doug's life were spent at Coates Corner, the store he owned and managed. While there, he formed many friendships, and loved serving his daily customers. His soft heart also extended to animals.
Doug was a skilled carpenter, a gift his dad taught him from childhood. His craftsmanship was meticulous, and always had to be "just right". He took pride in his 100 year-old farmhouse, which he had transformed into a beautiful home.
Doug was preceded in death by his grandparents: Peter and Rose Neisen, and Alois and Katherine Schramel, and nephews: Michael and Matthew Neisen.
Doug will be sadly missed by his parents Elroy and Irene Neisen; brothers: Stephen (Karen) Neisen, Paul (Renee) Neisen, Dennis (Coral) Neisen, Brian (Teresa) Neisen, sister Sharie (Jim) Baszuro; nieces and nephews: Adam, Amanda, Eric, Melissa, Kristen, Rachel, Thomas and Jack Neisen, Christopher, Nathan and Jessica Baszuro.
