Douglas D. Gunthert

July 29, 1948 — September 9, 2023

Douglas D. Gunthert, age 75, of Omaha, Nebraska, passed away at Lakeside Hospital on September 9, 2023. He was born on July 29, 1948, to the late Walter and M. Geraldine (Dugger) Gunthert in McCook, Nebraska.

Doug graduated from Benson High School and earned a bachelor’s degree from UNO. He served in the US Navy after high school and worked as a tax auditor for many years.


Doug was united in marriage to Mary Cowan on August 21, 1971. They were married for 45 years until her passing in 2016. He was also preceded in death by two children, James Paul and Mary Evelyn, who died as infants. He longed for the day when he would be reunited with Mary and his babies, and now that joy is complete.


He spent His life loving Jesus and telling everyone he could about the joy and love that were available in knowing Jesus. He loved to sing loudly even though he was woefully out of tune, and he equally loved to be teased about how bad his singing was. He would drop everything to connect and be present with his people, even when it cost him. He never missed an opportunity to cheer for the Huskers or Chiefs, and he cheered for the teams his grandchildren favored. He also went out of his way to connect with his grandkids who didn’t like football and learn to like what they did. He was a steady calm presence in the life of his children and grandchildren. He adored his grandchildren and never missed an opportunity to tell other people how great his family was.

He is survived by his daughters Angela Fahrenkrug (Steven) of Treynor, IA, and Sarah Koenig (Matt) of Omaha; brother, David Gunthert of Ocala, Florida; five beloved grandchildren, Ian, Isaac, Lily, Joshua and Micah.
