Douglas Dennis Warne, 75 of Eagan was born February 17, 1940 in Sioux Falls, SD to Tom and Margaret Warne. He died suddenly in his home on September 2, 2015.
Doug had a strong faith in God and a unique personality.
He loved travelling with his wife and family to Branson, Alaskan cruise, Caribbean cruise, San Antonio, Prince Edward Island, Hawaii, and Vermont. Doug took pride in gardening and inventing new ways to keep squirrels off his bird feeders. He was an avid Chicago Bears fan. Doug’s fun loving attitude was contagious and carried on through his children and grandchildren! He always took time to attend as many of their activities as possible. The “thumbs up” signal meant to have fun, great job, and always do your best. Grandpa will be cheering from heaven now with both thumbs up!
Doug worked at John Morrell in Sioux Falls, SD, Mohawk Carpet and Hosanna Lutheran Church in Lakeville, Minnesota. He was a former member of the Zuhrah Shrine Cobra Corp where he loved to entertain others with his driving skills.
