Douglas C.F. Mareld

Douglas C.F. Mareld, 64, passed away on April 30, 2015.
Born in Stockholm, Sweden, he immigrated in 1953 to the United States. Doug grew up in Los Angeles, where he met Elizabeth. They moved to Yakima in 1988. It was through teaching that he found his true calling, teaching English at High Tech High in Quincy. He loved teaching; it combined his passions for literature, learning and the sharing of knowledge with the world. Well known for his humor and quick wit, Doug made friends everywhere he went. He was dedicated to his family, always willing to lend an ear and give advice, grab an extra blanket or simply make a fresh pot of coffee.
Douglas was preceded in death by his parents, Doris and Claes Mareld. He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Elizabeth; his loving daughter, Ashley; and his brother, Kenneth. He will be missed dearly.
