Douglas Lee Seitz, 58, of Mt. Vernon, IN, passed away on January 3, 2022, at Deaconess Hospital Midtown Campus in Evansville. He was born on August 11, 1963, to Michael L Seitz, Sr. and Janice C. (Allbright) Seitz. Doug graduated from Mt. Vernon Senior High School in 1981. He enjoyed playing saxophone in the high school band.
Doug was a member of Boy Scout Troop 475, with one of the highlights being a trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico for 3 weeks with his brother and his father, and other troop members and leaders. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corp., where he was stationed in Okinawa, Japan for a year. After his time in the service, Doug worked primarily in maintenance at various resorts and apartment complexes. He also traveled the country working on cooling towers. Doug was a loving and compassionate person who was always happy to help his family and friends with anything at any time. He was a devoted son and brother and Mom and Kimmi will miss him more than he could ever imagine. He was a collector of many things, but especially guns and knives. He also enjoyed fishing and growing his own garden. He was an enthusiastic cook, often concocting new and different dishes to his liking using things from his garden.
Doug is survived by his mother, Jan; sister, Kimberly McBride (Kevin Bitter); niece and nephew, Haley Seitz and Drew Seitz (Amanda), and Jensen McBride; aunts, Barbara Grabert, Diane Seitz Hall; uncle, Steve Allbright (Kathy); and many cousins. Special thanks to Larry Cox for helping and "running around" with Doug.
He is preceded in death by his father, Michael, Sr. in 2019; his brother, Michael Seitz, Jr. in 2017.; brother-in-law, Darrell McBride in 2009; and Hoss Albert, his beloved canine companion.
