Douglas Jean Easthouse
Easthouse, Douglas Jean age 75, of Mound, died peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones on February 3, 2009. Preceded in death by parents, Joe and Ella Easthouse. Survived by his wife of 55 years, Donna Easthouse; daughters, Holly Schluter and husband John, Candy Anderson and husband Al; grandchildren, Sara, Mitch, and Taylor Schluter, Dausyn and Cody Anderson; sister, Sharon Sharp and husband Lee; and also Merritt Geyen who has always been like a daughter. Doug was born in Minneapolis on November 18, 1933 to Joe and Ella Easthouse from Navarre. He graduated from Mound High School in 1951 and married Donna Jean Randolph also from Mound in 1953. Soon after he joined the Navy he was stationed in Key West, Florida. He was on the boxing team and was a spotter for ships off the coast of Cuba. Doug was a wonderful athlete and sportsman. During high school he was on the Mound High School Football Team that won the Lake Conference Championship in 1950 and was a Golden Glove Regional Middle Weight Champion. He loved spending time with his buddies hunting, fishing, golfing, and playing cards. Doug's business career consisted of working for E.J. Long Year Mining Co., P. Lorillard Cigarette Co., and Fremont Industries for 25 plus years. He was part owner of Motion and partnered with Pat Codute in Spec I. His greatest accomplishments were Easiway Systems in Delano, which he started with John Schluter in 1980 and worked at until he retired ten years ago due to poor health. He was a board member at Crow River Bank and was instrumental in preserving the Gillespie Senior Center in Mound. Doug was a role model as he showed great courage and dignity through the last twenty years of heart problems and many types of cancer which took him in the end. Many thanks to Cathy at North Memorial Hospice, our friends at Gillespie Center that were always there for us, and most of all our wonderful doctor and friend Dr. Ben Bache-Wiig from North Clinic.
