With heavy hearts we regret to inform that Douglas W. Furrer, 60, passed away peacefully during the night of Sunday March 15th at his home in Lakewood, Colorado. Doug was born August 20th, 1959 in Shakopee, Minnesota to parents Floyd Furrer and Marilyn (Lieske) Furrer. The whole family moved to Colorado in the spring of 1962 where he went on to attend Westminster High School class of '76-'77. He then started his 40+ years of construction work, specializing in concrete.
In 1984 he had 2 major life events, the marriage to his former wife Laurie and the birth if his 1st child, daughter Michelle. They added to their family a 2nd child in 1986, son Trent. His life journey then brought him to his current wife Cheryl. They were married in Las Vegas, October 2015. Cheryl has 3 adult children from previous relationships. Brett, Nicole, and Travis.
Doug was the epitome of "work hard/play hard". He was always a dedicated hard worker. Even after falling several stories while pouring concrete at a new parking garage, when doctors told him he would never work in concrete again, he recovered and went back. He was a great role model to his kids to never give up. When not at work, he enjoyed taking long cruises in all of his vehicles as well as his beloved Harley, fishing, hunting, music of all kinds, going to the movies, drag racing, working on cars, the list goes on and on. Long story short, he didn't like to sit still unless of course he was watching wrestling. He was a very social person, made friends everywhere he went. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He will be truly missed by a lot of great people.
Doug is survived by wife Cheryl, daughter Michelle, son Trent, stepdaughter Nicole, stepson Travis, parents Floyd and Marilyn, siblings Jeff, Susie, Donny, Lori and Jerry, as well as 6 grand children Dakota, Evelynn, Lacy, Phoenix, Junior and Easton. Doug was preceded by best friend Ace and stepson Brett.
A Celebration of life will be held at a date to be determined.
