Douglas Jerome
Voigt

Douglas Jerome Voigt was born November 13, 1977 and passed away on July 27, 2020.

Survived by his wife Shelly (Glodoski), daughter Audrey, sons Grant and Hudson, parents James and Yong Chu, sisters Diana (Rob) and Dotty (John), nephews Ethan and Jackson, along with so many other relatives and friends.

Growing up in Brown Deer, he attended Dean Elementary School and Brown Deer Middle School. As a boy, he performed on stage with Yul Brynner in “The King and I” at the PAC in Milwaukee. After moving to Brookfield, he attended Brookfield Central High School where he played football and was voted Homecoming King. While attending Marquette University, he joined the United States Army Reserve and was proud to serve his country as a Sergeant.

Doug was a larger-than-life character making everything fun and exciting. He had an intensity that included his genuine care for people. This care helped him maintain friendships from childhood and build new ones through adulthood. As a salesman at Braeger Chevrolet for many years he connected himself with even more people because he didn’t meet strangers, he welcomed new friends.

Everyone who knew Doug experienced his intelligence and sharp wit, balanced with a silly sense of humor. Always committed to staying strong, he had an imposing physique surrounding a gentle and sensitive soul. He took his greatest joy in spending time with his wife and kids doing the simplest things like going to a park, having a cookout or watching a movie. Togetherness with the people he loved most and making them happy made him feel complete.

Doug deeply loved his family and was a great guy who made people feel important. He was unique, brilliant, beautiful and loved.

His departure will ripple through to so many, leaving us all with a hope to be as open and as engaging as he was.

I really enjoyed your friendship. I know you loved your immediate family and the one that you created to the moon and back. You were so proud of all of them–especially your sisters. I am so proud of all you accomplished despite whatever challenges life presented to you. I guess the saying only the good die young is true.

I will never forget all the great times we had at work and out. I will miss getting the kids together for trick or treat, and the bon fires after in your back yard. Til we meet again. Your friend always, Tony

I worked with Doug for many years and one thing that really stands out to me is that whenever they was any kind of threat or disturbance at the dealership Doug was right there protecting and making sure things didn’t get out of hand. He was always watching out. He always lended his ear when you needed someone to talk to and his hugs, man they were the best. No matter what you were going through a hug from Doug made you feel better. Rest in Peace Doug.

You were always such a fun guy and you lit up the room. You couldn’t NOT smile or laugh when Doug was present. My husband truly enjoyed working with you, and the nickname you gave me will continue on. Rest peacefully…Many miss you already.

When we were hanging out it was nothing but laughs. I dont have many friends left that can really make me laugh like I did as kid, or just be excited to be on a little adventure. Always was and always will be one of a kind, God bless.

Doug, thank you for making me smile and laugh when we visited your family. Your sense of humor and natural way of being a ‘dork’ helped others be at ease will be missed. I appreciate how I could count on hearing hello Mrs Z, whenever we met. ❤️❤️❤️ from Mrs Z.

    Miss you buddy, such a shame. What a gut punch to have to find out about this online instead of a personal reach out! Rest easy man, we miss you.
