Doug was born on October 13, 1949, in Cedar Rapids, the son of Harold and Harriet (Dauchy) Johnson. Doug graduated from Cedar Rapids Washington High School and later Iowa State University. He was united in marriage to Deeanna Fish on July 12, 1975, in Cedar Rapids. Doug was very passionate about God’s creation and became a Board Certified Master Arborist. His career began as a Forester at the Yellow River State Forest in Allamakee County. He next served as Linn County Forester for twenty-three years. Doug started his own landscaping business, Total Scapes in 1996. He was very proud to have his son Jamie join him and take over the business. Doug enjoyed fishing and taking road trips to Wisconsin and Galena, IL. He loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He looked forward to mowing days with his older grandchildren and telephone calls with the younger grandchildren. Doug was a lifetime member of New Covenant Bible Church. His faith was in God. Doug is certainly in a better place now.
