Anacortes - "I am the Resurrection and the Life. Anyone who believes in Me will live; even after dying. Everyone who lives in Me and believes in Me shall never die" (John 11: 25-26). Doug Sobek passed away on June 22, 2021.

Doug was a man of faith who reflected the light and love of Christ. His journey was defined with many attributes, such as integrity, compassion, generosity, wisdom and a witty personality that often reflected his keen sense of humor. However, and above all, Doug put the needs of others first.

The Lord gave Doug a good life. For over 5O years Doug was married to his one true love, Lois. They experienced a wonderful life together. This union was intertwined with laughter, joy and a faith capable of moving mountains. Doug was very close to his daughter Deanna, son-in-law Mitch and his two beautiful granddaughters Lauren and Christina.

Doug was a veteran. He served his country as a US Army Signal Corps officer during the Vietnam War. Throughout his life, Doug remained a patriot. He flew his American flag every day, and spent hours talking with other veterans. There was never a day when Doug did not humbly give thanks to God for bringing him home.

After the war, Doug earned a degree in business and worked as an executive throughout his career. He had a talent for his profession and enjoyed many successes along the way.

Doug did not back away from a challenge. He ran marathons, climbed mountains and sang with various choruses and ensembles with an exquisite tenor voice. To hear Doug sing was a thrill and a blessing.

Grief is hard. However, the hope and knowledge of being together again is a gift that can never be eliminated. There is no victory in death. Death is swallowed up in victory, "Oh death where is your sting?" (l Corinthians: 15-5).

Doug was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, his son and his beloved wife, Lois.
