Douglas Warren Kuntz “Slugger”

May 23, 1964 – December 21, 2022
In loving memory ~
“We can’t always choose the music life plays for us; we can choose how we dance to it.”
Although Doug had many health and physical ailments all his life, he had a witty and great sense of humour. He had a great passion for sports, hockey, and football. Even as a young child his favorite pastime was fishing. We are thankful for the friends that took him fishing to Cottonwood lake over the years as he got older. Doug’s other love of life was rock music. He had good collection of his favorite music he listened to daily. This past summer he went to a concert in Grand Forks with his niece and caregiver. He loved spending time with family!!
Doug was predeceased by his oldest sister Gloria Kuntz in March 1966, his father Mathias James [Jim] Kuntz in June 1993, his mother Bernice Kuntz on July 15, 2015. He is survived by his sisters, Donna Kuntz, Karen Hewgill, Debbie Kuntz, his brothers Kevin Kuntz, and Greg Kuntz. He leaves behind many nieces and nephews who loved his great humor.
