Heartfelt Thoughts for the Lange Family

Tony and I had so many wonderful times with Doug and Sandi. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we will always be to Doug for his business advice and direction, and I’m certain we weren’t the easiest clients he had to deal with! But most of all, we were fortunate to have known Doug. Sandi, and the children personally which we will be thankful for most of all.


Justice Michelle Keller

To the entire Lange Family: Doug was not only a consummate professional, but a servant to his Community. As a devoted family man, I know that each and every one of you is grieving his loss, and he was taken to Heaven way too soon. May the love and prayers of family and friends sustain you all during this difficult time.


Thinking of Doug’s Family

My heart goes out to the family of Doug Lange. He was always a kind and gentle man and my thoughts and prayers are with the family as they say goodbye to him today. Sincerely, Kathy Groob

For Sandi and all of Doug’s family, we offer our heartfelt condolences for your loss. We knew Doug as a wonderful person, even keeled, great advisor, and always a friendly presence. He provided me with great advice during my term as president of MSP and then to us as a private retirees.
we are thankful for knowing him. We are both sad for you at this time but know you will meet again in the Lord’s presence one day. May God bless you and heal your heart until then.

I enjoyed working with Doug

I worked with Doug in planning the family’s
leisure trips, over a number of years. In all my years in the business, I have never met a kinder, more gracious, generous, and appreciative man than Doug Lange. His fight with his disease was and will always be an inspiration to me. Condolences to Sandi and his children and grand children. This is a sad loss for all who knew him

Rest in Peace

Bob and Kathy Saalfeld


Great life, my friend

Doug, hadn’t seen you much since ‘71 graduation…off to see the world on my end…but last few years of Friday lunches at the Boat House were grand. You carried yourself in an admirable fashion, as you battled your burden. We were never brothers in arms, but of the Long Blue Line. My condolences to all that you touched, Rest in eternal peace , my friend.
