Douglas E. Auch

NEOSHO, Mo. — Douglas Ervin Auch, of Neosho Mo., stepped from sleep into his glory with Jesus after 66 years of life on Friday morning, March 28, 2014. His departure was preceded with a 17 year battle against illness, a battle he waged with faith and endurance.

Doug was born in Yankton, S.D. on Aug. 31, 1947, to Ervin and Nancy Auch. He grew up in Rapid City, S.D., where he met his sweetheart Teena Dowdy. They recently celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary on March 11.

He loved his work, successfully managing two oil companies. He also enjoyed singing, playing bass guitar, going to car races with his sons and spending time with his grandchildren.

Doug was preceded in death by both of his parents. He will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Teena; his four children, Rick and Kari Auch, Mike and Cindy Auch, Alicia and Terry Nahirny, Dan and Adena Auch; eighteen grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. Also three brothers, Ron (Lou Ann) Auch, of Wisconsin, Barry (Geri ) Auch, of Wisconsin and Darryl (Teri) Auch, of Neosho. He is further survived by other relatives and many friends.

The memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 2, at Abundant Life Assembly of God 700 Spencer Drive Neosho, Mo.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the family are appreciated. Please send to: The Auch Family 3505 Beaumont St. #2 Neosho, Mo. 64850.
