Doug was born April 9, 1962, in Hastings, NE to Douglas F. & Jan (Hayes) Pawloski. He graduated from St. Cecilia High School in 1980 and received his Associates Degree in Auto Body Technology from Central Community College in Hastings. Doug married Michelle D. “Chelle” Schroer on September 19, 1987, at St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Hastings.

Doug worked as an auto body specialist at Sealey’s Body Shop for over 30 years. He was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church. Doug was such a loyal husband and father. He was well-known for his quick wit, being a constant prankster, and his ability to light up a room with his infectious laugh and smile. Doug always put others before himself, his unfinished truck is a testament to his selflessness. He was always wholeheartedly involved in his kids’ lives. Doug embodied everything a man should be: a great father, husband, brother, and son.

Doug was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Bill Schroer; and a niece; Dani Busboom.
