In Loving Memory

Merle “Doc” Haugen

May 30, 1987 - June 26, 2019

Donor, South Dakota

Merle “Doc” Haugen was a fun, goofy, loving, laid back man. Although his physical heart was bad, his heart for others was bigger than life. Doc always saw the good in everyone and everything, often saying “it’ll be alright!” Although his life ended short, his legacy lives on through his family and his selfless gift of eye, organ and tissue donation. Doc was able to donate both of his kidneys, corneas and tissues, successfully helping save and change the lives of many!

Doc loved being with his family, especially his daughters, the outdoors, and any day fishing was always better than a day at work!

Thank you with love from all of Doc’s family and friends!
