Englund, Douglas Marz
Passed away on November 22, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Doug was born in Minneapolis in 1940. He attended Roosevelt High School and the University of Minnesota. He retired as a Colonel after serving in the U.S. Army for 30 years, during which he served two tours in Vietnam, and was a foreign affairs officer assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, the chief of staff for the On-Site Inspection Agency, and the director of operations for the United Nations Special Commission in Iraq. His subsequent civil service career included roles as the NASA representative in Moscow and as Director of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

Doug enjoyed traveling, reading, music, progressive politics, his dogs, and especially spending time with his family and friends at his home on Lake Minnetonka.

Doug was preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Kathryn. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Ann; children, Amy, Todd (Nikki), and Lara; grandchildren, Madison and Alex Douglas, and Nathan and Jack Englund; former son-in-law, Scott Douglas; brothers, Gary (Carole), Robert (Sharon), and Steven (Cyndi Coulter); many nieces and nephews; and a large extended family.
