Douglas W. VanLieu

May 29, 1946 ~ December 21, 2019 (age 73)


Douglas "Grumpy" Van Lieu (73) beloved husband and best friend of Sandra Van Lieu for 30 years, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday December 21, 2019.  Doug was a devoted father, brother, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather. With his big heart he would do anything for his family.
Doug was an avid street racer and mechanic, telling stories about rebuilding and customizing cars which sometimes encountered him  with a little running from the law "leaving them in the dust".  There was always one thing he loved more than his novas, and that was his beautiful wife.
Grumpy will be missed immensely by his family. Accompanied with heavy hearts we will say our goodbyes.

There are no services.
