Douglas M. North

MADISON – Douglas Mark North (aka Patch) walked on to join the love of his life, Lorraine, on March 30, 2017, after a brief illness at the VA Hospital in Madison.

He was born in Milwaukee on Sept. 1, 1955, the son of Robert and Patricia North.

Douglas was a graduate of West High in Madison and immediately enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He served from 1972-1979 in aviation electronics, serving on the USS Kitty Hawk and the USS Coral Sea.

Doug was a lifelong member and patriarch of the Capital City Riders (1989-2017). His interests were motorcycling, gun smiting, mechanics, electronics, camping, hunting, leather work, fine tequilas, Cuban cigars, cooking and photography. Doug was a big man with a big voice and a bigger heart. Douglas’ career included international trouble shooting for Pro-Tech and as a supervisor for Morris Manufacturing. Doug was a gifted jack of all trades, a go to guy for his friends.
