Douglas M. Eastman, age 78 passed away on January 28, 2021 at St. Elizabeth hospital. He was born on April 3, 1942 in Appleton to Edward and Esther Eastman.
Douglas graduated from: Fox Valley Lutheran High School, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and Milwaukee Area Technical College. In addition, he completed continuing education programs at the Milwaukee School of Engineering and Marquette University. He worked in the material management field at the Square D Company, Harley-Davidson Company, Harnisferger Corporation, Kearney & Trecker Corporation, and Giddings & Lewis Corporation.
Doug overcame polio as a child. As an adult he took up running and lost 150 pounds. Consequently, he donated all of his baked creations to family, friends and the YMCA.
Douglas was an avid book reader and an enthusiastic runner, participating in hundreds of events over the years from 5K runs to marathons. A secret pastry chef at heart, his many baking projects brought eating pleasure to countless people that had access to them.
He viewed his extensive travel, upon retirement, to all corners of the united states as his crowning finale.
Douglas was a private, caring man showing love and thoughtfulness to all.
Survivors include stepfather John Mosher, brother Daniel Eastman and niece Rebecca Boehlen.
He was preceded in death by his parents Edward Eastman and Esther Mosher, brother Dwight Eastman and sisters: Darlene Long and Diane Diaz.
The family would like to thank the nurses, doctors and hospice staff at St. Elizabeth Hospital for their compassion and friendship.
Per Doug’s wishes, there will be no formal services.
