Douglas James Haggart, 69 of Lincoln, formerly of St. Paul, died on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at Country House Residence in Lincoln. He had battled Lewy body dementia for several years emanating from a head injury.
Graveside Services will be 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the Elmwood Cemetery in St. Paul. Pastor Lisa Ewald will be officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be donated to the University of Nebraska Foundation (in memory of Doug Haggart), 1010 Lincoln Mall, #300, Lincoln, NE 68508.
Doug is survived by a sister, Veronica (Roni) Haggart, her husband, Charles Work, and a nephew, Andrew Work. He is predeceased by his parents, Richard J. Haggart and Lillian L. Haggart.
Doug was born in St. Paul on October 20, 1950 and graduated from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, with a bachelor of science in education. He was employed as a media shipping assistant at Nebraska ETV and Great Plains Library for 28 years.
Doug was an avid golfer and Nebraska sports fan—football, basketball, track, baseball. He was embued with a spirit of volunteerism whether it was assisting with a U of N track meet or driving the children’s train at the Lincoln Zoo. He maintained his dry wit and “corny” sense of humor throughout.
