Douglas Albert Skoog
Jun 12, 1950 - Sep 26, 2009
Residence in Winston-Salem, NC
Douglas Albert Skoog, beloved father of David and Shelby, passed away September 26, 2009. He was preceded in death last November by his loving wife of 26 years, Cathy Elizabeth Vass-Skoog. He was born in Lincoln, NE on June 12, 1950 to Margaret and the late Harold “Jerry” Skoog. In addition to his children, Doug is survived by his mother Margaret Skoog of College Park, MD, his sister Roxanne Tyra (Ian) of Sterling, VA, his brother Eric Skoog of Horseshoe Bay, TX, and several nieces and nephews as well as his beloved pets, Jello and Tux. As a graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in mechanical engineering, Doug was employed for many years by Celanese and RJR Tobacco before his most recent work as a self-employed construction project manager. He was a skilled carpenter and loved the challenge of building or fixing almost anything. Doug seemed to have a talent for every endeavor he undertook and used his talents for the betterment of others. As a member of Centenary United Methodist Church, he dedicated his time as an active volunteer for many Habitat for Humanity homes, and he served on domestic and international mission teams. He was especially devoted to the APSAR hospital project in Mallco Rancho, Bolivia and it was important to him to share these experiences with both of his children. Doug was an avid supporter of his family in all of their endeavors whether it was sports, volunteerism, or simply spending time together. Despite a life cut short, he will always be remembered as a loving father and husband, a faithful servant to all who needed him, and an active member of his community. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at Centenary United Methodist Church (646 W. 5th St.) on Sunday, October 4th, at 3 p.m. The family will receive friends after the service. Memorials may be made to the Missions/Outreach of Centenary United Methodist Church, 646 W. 5th St., Winston-Salem, NC 27101.
