Douglas Waltz Obituary

Douglas Waltz of Wheatland, CA, died peacefully March 7, 2018, with family by his side.

Doug was a farmer all his life. He built on a legacy that started with a pioneering family in the 1800's and will be continued by his sons, grandsons and great-grandsons.

Doug lived almost his entire life in the Wheatland home his parents built and carried him into when he was born, October 7, 1931. He attended Wheatland schools and Yuba College.

Doug served as a Yuba County supervisor for two terms from 1977-1984. He represented the county on committees that worked on air quality, water and flooding issues. He also served for many years on the board of the Rice Growers Association.

Doug enjoyed each and every day. He was current on local, national and world affairs and appreciated lively discussions. He loved to travel, spend time at Lake Almanor, watch Giants baseball, and above all, be with his family. Nothing made him happier than holidays with everyone sitting together around the dining room table and no occasion passed without him thanking everyone for making the effort to be together.

Douglas leaves behind his wife of nearly 67 years, Lucille; children Terry (Bill) Kurfess, Stephen (Janet) Waltz, Clyde (Raegean) Waltz; grandchildren, Douglas (Iliana) Kurfess, Elizabeth Kurfess, Clinton (Kayla) Waltz, Joseph (Angela) Waltz; step granddaughter Julie (John) Savill; and great-grandchildren Kelsey, Sadie, Madison Kurfess, Hartley, Hudsyn, James Waltz, soon to be born Landon Douglas Waltz; step great-grandchildren Kevin, Ben and Abby Savill; sisters, Clydene Netto and Marilyn Grimm and a large extended family.

A private family celebration of his life is planned.

Donations in his memory may be made to the Wheatland Fire Authority, P.O. Box 119, Wheatland, CA 95692, or a .
