Obituary

Doug V. Reiswig, 65, Fargo, ND passed away in his home surrounded by friends and family on December 13, 2014.

Doug (Douglas) was born August 8th 1949 in McClusky, ND to Clarence and Lydia (Herr) Reiswig. He grew up on a farm near McClusky, ND. He attended Sheyenne River Academy through 11th grade and graduated from McClusky High School in 1968. Doug was drafted into the Army right out of high school where he served as a medical corpsman and was honorably discharged in 1976.

After serving in the Army, he worked at the VA hospital in Fargo where he met Lori (Rohde) who he married on June 22, 1973 in Halliday, ND. They lived in Fargo, ND where they bought their first and only home and raised their only child Melissa (McDaniel). In 1977, they moved to Greenbush, MN where he worked as a “catskinner” clearing trees for farmland. Shortly thereafter, they moved back to Fargo and Doug began his lifelong career as an independent long-haul truck driver under his company of Rapid Transport.

He is survived by his wife Lori (Rohde), Fargo, ND, daughter  Melissa (Gary) McDaniel, Bismarck, ND, granddaughter, Courtney Paulson, Devils Lake, ND, brother, Stanley (Paulette) Reiswig, Bismarck, ND, seven nephews; Jeremy (Maritza) Reiswig, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kerwin (Karla) Reiswig, San Diego, CA, Ryan (Sara) Reiswig, Oakes, ND, Luke Rohde, Halliday, ND, Carl Rohde, Dickinson, ND, Riley Rohde, Rapid City, SD, Tanner Rohde, Killdeer, ND, niece Elizabeth Rohde, Bismarck, ND, many cousins, and his beloved trucking buddy cat Sassy.

    Mooringsport LouisianaLori my thoughts and prayers are with you. Doug was such a good man he would always take the time to visit with us at the warehouse. I remember the little snowman he made for Robin we don’t get much snow down here in Louisiana and the fudge you made that he would bring to us. May God Bless you and your family.

    Lori & Missy,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I think of you both often when I drive by Carl Ben.
    I will miss he’s laugh when he would drop off his paperwork.

    Hi Lori, I am so sorry to hear of the death of your husband. I did not know him, but I remember you talking about him when we worked together at the school libraries. He was a trucker, & you did the books for him. My sympathies to you & your family.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Such a shock.
    I will always remember how much fun my cousin Doug was, all the family reunions & get-togethers. His hot car, wow!
    Words cannot express our sadness and the loss we are feeling, but we will meet again someday.
    Love you, cousin.
