We are saddened to announce the unexpected passing of Douglas Wayne Stage, 51, on January 2, 2023. He enjoyed spending time with family, cheering on the Green Bay Packers, and supporting his children in their extracurriculars. Doug worked at Kimberly-Clark for 28 years and was a proud graduate of Michigan Tech, majoring in Chemical Engineering. He was also a leader for Capabilities First, a Kimberly-Clark organization that helps students with disabilities through the interview process, job search, and acclimatation into their new place of employment.
He was generous, supportive, and kindhearted to everyone he met. Doug was a loving father and husband and will be deeply missed. Doug leaves behind his wife of 25 years, Laura (51), son Adam (23), and daughters Adrienne (21) & Autumn (20). He is preceded in death by his grandparents Arthur & Bette Corey, and Ted & Sue Stage. Surviving family members include parents Fred & Arda Stage of Rapid River, MI, and siblings Paul (Karen) Stage, Julie (Garin) Griebel, and Todd Stage.
