Doug was born November 9, 1937 in Dubuque, son of Arthur and Bertha (Kifer) Lenhart.
He graduated from Maquoketa High School in 1955.
He married Judy Clark on April 15th, 1961, to that union four daughters were born. He later married Gloria Hammerand -Clapham on January 4th, 1980 and two more children were added to the family.
He served as Sgt E5 in the National Guard for 6 years.
Doug began farming at 5 years old and continued until the end. He loved the land and wanted to be a good steward to what the Lord had entrusted to him, leaving it better for his children and grandchildren. He was 32 years old when he received the Outstanding Young Farmer Award in 1970. He was a Pioneer Sales Rep for 9 years. He raised and sold sweet corn for over 17 years.
Doug enjoyed the outdoors. He loved boating, snowmobiling, camping and traveling. He looked forward to trips across the country in his motorhome as well as camping with his grandchildren.
Doug's most treasured legacy was the importance of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. At his 80th birthday celebration, he passed on the baton of faith to his family encouraging them to continue to pass this along to their children, grandchildren and others. Even in his final days, he continued to share the hope found in Jesus. So to all who knew him and share in the faith of Jesus, He'll see you later.
He is survived by his wife Gloria Lenhart of Zwingle; children, Cindy (Mike) Moss of Marian, IA, Sandy Aidukas of Orlando, FL, Julie Horak of Hudson, FL, Joni (Thomas) Regan of Orlando, FL, Daryl (Lori) Clapham of Plover, Wisconsin and Tammy (Brent) Bullock of Eldridge, IA; grandchildren, Ben and Katie Moss, Adam Aidukas, Jonathan, Faith, Grace and Joy Clapham, Brittany, Brenna, Luke and Brooklyn Bullock; and a sister, Judy Marcus of St Paul, MN.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and in-laws, John and Velma Hammerand.
A Doug Lenhart Memorial Fund has been established.
The family would like to thank the staff at Unity Point Health-Finley Hospital, Hospice of Dubuque, and Home Instead.
