Douglas Tande went home to be with the Lord Jan. 7, 2019. He was born Sept. 5,1937, in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The son of Orian and Avis Tande, Doug is survived by his loving wife of 63 years Joyce Tande, Doug’s brother David Tande, Doug’s daughter Linda and her husband Bob Waldo, son Mark Tande and wife Karin, daughter Yvonne and husband Curtis Hill and daughter Lisa and husband Daniel Hanna; grandchildren Nikki, Bobby, Amy, Luke, Jillian, Curtis, Danny, Joshua, Rachel, David and 16 great-grandchildren.
Doug loved life in the mountainous outdoors of Plumas County. He spent his life in the woods and on the high mountain lakes and the local creeks. Doug was an avid fisherman, hunter and artist enjoying woodworking for many years and more recently he enjoyed golfing, reading about history and continued cutting his own wood.
Doug Tande is remembered as a loving husband and father, doting grandfather and a man of deep Christian faith. He moved to Plumas County in 1967 from Fullerton, California. He always said that only Joyce would have been adventurous enough to move up into these mountains with four small children and they never regretted it.
He worked as a manager at Longs Drugs and for the Plumas County Assessor’s Office. He and Joyce also founded Tande Draperies. Doug had a great sense of humor and he was a wonderful storyteller. Doug loved his Lord and savior Jesus Christ. A celebration of Doug’s life will be held at Meadow Valley Community Church on Saturday, Jan. 12, at 11 a.m.
