Douglas Oliver

d. May 4, 2022

North Oaks, Minnesota

Life is a test and Doug Oliver passed with flying colors.  He stubbornly fought against glioblastoma for 2 years and survived through the COVID apocalypse, defying the odds. The only thing infectious about Doug was his smile, laugh, and happy-go-lucky attitude.  In his 69 years, he traveled the world with family and friends and while his address stated North Oaks, his home was where his heart was kept with his beloved wife Holly.  They had 46 years of married life together, with two wonderful children Kyra (Anthony) and Ryan.  Doug is also survived by his brother Jeff (Donna) and sister Pam, as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends.  He was
preceded in death by his parents Cecil and Marge; and beloved dogs, Chloey and Zanny.

Doug was always out playing volleyball, golf, pickleball, softball (back in the day), fishing, pinball, kayaking, and when the need arose, hoisting a beer or two (or more, you know).  He was always up for fun and having a good time, bringing joy to millions.  Okay, maybe not millions, but to a lot of people. Throughout his life, he always enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends. He served at church as an usher, greeter, and money counter, participated in many clubs, not to mention his famous daily coffee group at Bruger's, managed to eat well as a member of, not one but two gourmet clubs, and volunteered for Fishing 4 Fun--helping some seniors get out on the water while sharing good times with them.  Friends were always a big part of his life and he treasured all of them.

Memorials preferred to the National Brain Tumor Society.
