Michael Fredrich Douglas was born on Sept. 5, 1941, to Keith and Evelyn (Chilson) Douglas in Minneapolis. He was united in marriage to Joan Ann LaMont on Jan. 3, 1959, in Blue Earth. After 49 years of marriage Joan died in 2008. He was united in marriage to Sharon Ogilvie on July 27, 2011, in Anchorage, Alaska with Pastor Jacob.

He worked as a professional painter for many years at Reichel Painting and Gustavus Adolphus College before retiring.

He and Joan raised their family in Madison Lake, and the last 13 years he resided in Blue Earth, after reuniting with his childhood sweetheart Sharon Bussinger-Ogilvie. His heart was so big and playful, especially when someone needed to have a laugh. He was a devoted loving husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend, he was always there for his family, and he will be deeply missed by many. His great love for nature led him to being an avid outdoorsman and he really loved fishing, especially for walleyes and perch. He also collected many arrowheads in the Madison Lake area.

He is survived by his wife; Sharon Ogilvie, of Blue Earth; and his four children, Jody (David) Scholtz, of Kasota, Vicky (James) Rauchman, of Mankato, Steve (Sandy) Douglas, of Madison Lake, Jeffrey (Teresa) Douglas, of Eagle Lake; 12 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; sister, Kathy Plante, of Granada; brother-in-law, Mike Bussinger; sister-in-law, Donna Bussinger, of Blue Earth; nieces and nephews, best friend for over 60 years, Bob Berndt, of Blue Earth.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents; his wife Joan; his brothers, Keith Jr. and Gerald; brother-in-law, Gary; sister-in-law, Judy.
