Doug Madden

Bidding farewell to an amazing man with a big heart, Doug Madden passed away Friday Feb 1st.

He is survived by wife of 48 years Mickey, daughter Shannon Crowe, daughter Kendra Miesner, and granddaughters Brianna and Adrienne. He was an avid dog lover and Cleo and Jake will miss him very much.

My Dad always had a silly face, funny story or joke to brighten the day. He is now in a pain-free comfortable place but he will be sorely missed by friends and family.

He was a Veteran of the Vietnam War and Military Police for the Air National Guard.

He loved Lake Tahoe and spent most of his life here, almost 60 years, hailing from Victoria, BC. He worked at Barney’s, Harvey’s and the Hyatt for 22 years. In his later years, he loved volunteering with the Friends of the Library doing the Book Sales. He also helped many people by delivering books in the Books on Wheels program.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Friends of the Library. If you would like to send a card: PO Box 13638, SLT, CA, 96151.

A Celebration of Life will be held this summer, time and place to be announced. To attend, please email Kendra at
