My sympathies and prayers go out to your family. May God ease your pain with the knowledge that he is with our Lord and Savior awaiting our opportunity to join him when our time comes.

I’m sad to hear this. Don Doehrmann was one of the best people I’ve ever had work on my home. He did great work, on schedule, with simple and creative solutions to problems. He was as professional and as kind as could be. I will always remember him and wished I’d known him better. My sympathies to your entire family and friends who were so fortunate to have him in their lives.

I remember Don from growing up in the neighborhood on State Street. I have wonderful memories with Don, JoAnne, and family. I remember getting together with Jim and Diann to go fishing out at Allan's pond and Don would be out there too. Don and my dad had some good times too.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. He was a special guy. May he always live in your hearts.
-Kim (Landuyt) Frahm & family

Saddened to hear of Don's passing. Known Don since we were kids. He was always fun to be around and was a great teammate during our high school days. Condolences to his family.

We will miss his cheerful ways, always a greeted us with a smile. At my office he always "checked the smoke detectors" guess he was always a firefighter at heart! I will miss him doing that. A great man.

Helen Ramsey on Aug 12, 2019

I will certainly miss his smile and his sense of humor, his friendship, his little whistle when he came close to the church office so he wouldn't scare me. Sincerely Helen Ramsey

Ron and Nancy cherish our many years of great friendship with such wonderful friends and the best of neighbors.
