With great sadness we announce the death of Leroy “Doug” Wachendorf, 60, on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, at his home with loved ones by his side.

A celebration of Doug’s life will be held for his family and friends at a later time, when it is safe to do so.

Doug was born in Guttenberg, on Nov. 3, 1959, the son of Roy and Hedda Wachendorf. 

Doug started farming at a young age, worked road and bridge construction and later owned and operated LDW Service Center in Guttenberg.

He suffered from depression and other health issues for many years, but it was cancer that took him in the end.

Doug loved the outdoors, spending time with Carley and Buck, collecting rocks, hunting, spending time on the river fishing and looking for mushrooms. He was an excellent cook.

He is survived by four daughters, Alecia, Teresa, Whitney, and Carley; one son, Buck, and six grandsons; parents; brothers, Jack, Scott and Dave; sisters, Heidi, Deb and Monica and many friends and relatives.

Doug was preceded in death by his son, Nick; grandparents; aunts; uncles and cousins.

The family would like to thank Doug’s neighbor Lace for caring for him for weeks unconditionally and St. Croix Hospice for their compassionate and wonderful care.

Condolences may be sent to 37097 Estes Point Rd., Guttenberg, IA 52052.
