Douglas M. Waisanen

March 14, 1937 to April 21, 2014

Douglas, "Doug," 77, was born on March 14, 1937 in Franklin Township, Michigan and died on August 21, 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, three children, and four grandchildren. He retired from Lockheed Martin as an engineer. He had a compassionate heart and a contagious spontaneity for life. He adored his children and grandchildren deeply. He was loved by many--and a friend to all. 

Douglas was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma in November 2013. He fought this disease courageously until the very end. He donated his body to UT Southwestern in an effort to further research and help others fight this form of cancer. In lieu of flowers, he and his family would like all proceeds to be donated to this foundation. You can donate to the MRF in his name by clicking here.
