Douglas D. Friesen, 60, of Fairbury, NE passed away March 5, 2019. He was born November 25, 1958 to Dwaine & Vernadine (Nichols) Friesen in Beatrice, NE.
Doug had two great loves in his life, his wife Paula and motorcycle riding. He was a master of two wheels; however, mastering those two wheels resulted in the first of his many scars. Accidents, surgeries and personal losses built a resolve in Doug to persevere and live no matter what. His faith, his friends and his motorcycle were the things that steadied him during those hard times. He is at rest now, no worries, no pain and no more hardships.
He is survived by his father Dwaine Friesen, brother Ed (Peg) all of Fairbury, sister Sherre (Don) Whitton of Langley, OK, nephew Jake (Alicia) Friesen of Fairbury, nieces Sarah (Dan) Corstange of New York, NY, Meg (J.D.) Prater of Santa Cruz, CA, great niece Micah Friesen & great nephews Isaac Corstange & Jude Prater, mother-in-law Darlene Pierce of Fairbury, brother-in-law Mark Pierce & nephew Trevor both of Council Bluffs, IA, niece Haley of Holstein, NE, niece Molli (Kyle) of Omaha, great nieces Jemma, Brady Violet, Lina & Carly, special friend Sue Holle and a host of friends.
Doug is preceded in death by wife Paula (Pierce), son Connor and mother Vernadine, father-in-law Jim Pierce & nephew Max Pierce.
