Douglas L. Trepanier, age 83, of Fond du Lac, died Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at Woodlands Senior Living. He was born on March 21, 1930 in Oconto, WI, the son of Marvin and Bernice (Hickey) Trepanier. Doug was a graduate of Fond du Lac High School and served 9 years with the 32nd Red Arrow division of the US Army National Guard in Fond du Lac. On October 14, 1950 he married Betty Abhold at St. Mary's Church in Fond du Lac. Doug was a happy and proud businessman in Fond du Lac for many years. He owned and operated Trepanier's Beer & Liquor West (1954 - 1994), East (1972-1990) and partnered in Parkway Lanes from 1976-1988.
