In Loving Memory

Merle “Doc” Haugen II

May 30, 1987 - June 26, 2019

Donor, South Dakota

Merle “Doc” Haugen II was a fun, goofy, loving, laid back man. Although his physical heart failed, 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 abruptly, his legacy lives on through his family and his selfless gift of organ, eye, 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!
