Douglas S. Haase, 47 of Watertown, passed away peacefully, surrouned by his family on Monday, October 3, 2016 at Rainbow Hospice Center of Johnson Creek following a courageous battle with cancer.
Doug was born on January 19, 1969 in Milwaukee, WI, the son of Linda (Wojciechowski) and Albert Haase. On June 26, 2015, he married Jessica Van Buren in Jefferson. Doug spent many years working at Watertown Wal-Mart and Pic-n-Save as the "Fun Manager". Doug's personality was BIG. He loved people and had a gift of sharing his happiness with others. He was an outgoing person and was always the life of the party. Doug loved being with friends and family in Tomahawk, WI; spending time outdoors and just being "up north". Doug's generosity was undeniable and he always put others needs before his own. He loved his wife dearly and cherished time with their children. Doug and Jess loved being together, looking at old houses and were interested in all aspects of antiques. He was a huge Packer fan and season ticket holder. Doug was a special man who was loved by all who knew him and will be dearly missed.
