Douglas Michael Schurman was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, Stearns County, to Dale and Lynn (Loehlein) Schurman on October 25, 1975. He married Pamela Jane Svec Punt on May 27, 2012 in Duluth, Minnesota.

Doug was a happy and joyful husband and father who lived every day to the fullest with a smile on his face. His enthusiasm for life was contagious to all of those around him. He loved spending time with his family enjoying the outdoors, finding new playgrounds and paths, reading books, playing Legos, and watching movies and sports – especially football. He enjoyed cheering on his Minnesota Vikings. And more than anything, Doug cheered on so many people in life with his encouragement and selflessness, including his children and step-children whom he loved deeply, supported and cared for their every need.

Doug worked for Best Buy Co., Inc. as an Intranet Systems Manager for nearly seven years. He graduated from ROCORI High School in 1994 and the University of Minnesota – Duluth with a BS in Computer Science. In April 2015, the family relocated from Shakopee, Minnesota to Centerton, Arkansas in support of his wife’s career and he continued on with Best Buy, working remotely.

Survivors include his wife Pamela; children Wyatt Knoll (age 3), Emma Claire (age 2), and Owen Doyle (age 2) of Centerton, Arkansas; step-children Kyle Hayden Punt (age 19) and Brynn Adriana Punt (age 11) of Shakopee; parents Dale and Lynn Schurman of Cold Spring; sister Andria (Steve Zaborowski) Schurman of Cold Spring, brother Mark (Maria) Schurman of Cope, South Carolina; and step-grandmother, Kathy Loehlein of Cold Spring.

Preceded in death by his grandparents, Lloyd and Ann Loehlein, and Melvin and Florence Schurman.
