Douglas Wayne Krogman was born August 27, 1970 in Sibley, Iowa to Wayne and Arlene (Roetman) Krogman. He attended Spirit Lake High School where he was a tutor for lower grade students and voted 'Best Athlete'. Doug was involved in football, track, wrestling, and baseball. He went to state for wrestling, broke track records in relays and sprinting and was a left-handed pitcher, but batted right, in baseball. After high school graduation, he attended the University of South Dakota, to play football, in Vermillion where he was a member of the fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha AG-1459. Doug married Christy Heidenwith on September 23, 1995 and from this union, Kyler and Madison were born. On May 18, 2002, Doug married Chandra Hendrickson and this union brought Chelsie and Dustin. Their family of six grew to seven with the birth of Meagan.
Once you met him, you were friends. Doug wanted everyone to know how important they were to him and never deliberately left anyone out. He was always there to lend a helpful hand in any way he could. Doug enjoyed both bow and shotgun hunting as well as watching his team, the Dallas Cowboys. He was a part of a Fantasy Football league that his son, Kyler, helped him set up and to his delight won his division with a cash payout. Doug was blessed with many things, but his most celebrated treasures were his late wife, Chandra and their children and grandchildren.
Doug is survived by his children, Kyler Krogman, Madison Krogman, Meagan Krogman, Chelsie Bork and Dustin Bork; mother, Arlene Krogman; siblings, Amy (Jeff Glienke) Jacobsma, Kelly (Jennifer) Krogman and Lisa (James) Huffman; grandchildren, Aubriella, Zaniya, new baby Allen in April 2021, Carver and new baby Fraser in July 2021; nieces and nephews, Riley and Emma Jacobsma, Jesse, Justin and Jase Willems, Kailey Krogman and Kylo Huffman.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Chandra; father, Wayne Krogman; mother-in-law, Sharon McRae; grandparents, Norbert (Pat) Krogman, Annabell Krogman; Albert and Christina Roetman; and his favorite sidekick, Aunt Sherry McElroy.

I can’t seem to stop wanting to call or text you. I don’t know why God chose you.
You took a huge peice of my heart with you. Please tell dad I love him and miss him. Smile always for our LORD AND SAVIOR. Mom
I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Doug through my son Matthew, who worked with Doug at the car dealership. Doug was such a great, kind person. Always had a smile! My thoughts and prayers are with the family!
I looked at may phone yesterday at frequently called numbers, I called Doug more often than I called my wife. I worked with Doug over 10 years. His job was many times stressful but Doug was never short with me and always quick will a smile. Doug was always a pleasure to be around. In the end what more can you say about a person.
Arlene and family,
We are so saddened and sorry for your loss . May God bless you and bring you peace. Eve and Linda Hatlanf

godbless the krogman family,doug will be remembered by us forever we are so sorry for your loss.
The world lost a wonderful individual when Doug passed way to soon. He was a positive student at Spirit Lake High School. He'd look at you & give you that little grin of his and you knew he was up to something. He enjoyed people and was very personable. To all of his family, may your memories get you through this difficult time. Arlene, I am so sorry for your loss.
I have so many memories of Doug growing up! He was one of my brothers best friends. His mother Arlene cut my hair for years. All of my memories are great! I loved that you and my brother kept in touch all of these years! My thoughts and prayers are with Arlene, the entire Krogram family and anyone that had the pleasure of meeting Doug! I will always remember your smile! RIP
Arlene and family,
My sympathy to your family.
Arlene and family - I am so sorry for your loss. His smile was the best and it came from his heart. Thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
Saw Doug not long ago after not seeing him for years. Had a great time visiting about the "old days" So sorry to hear of his passing

Heartfelt sympathy to Arlene and Family. Tom and Jan Harris
OUR SYMPATHY TO ARLENE AND FAMILY. WE KNOW HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED. BILL WILL SURELY MISS TALKING TO DOUG ABOUT 'CAR DEALS' ON THE PHONE WHICH THEY DID OFTEN. WE ARE THINKING OF YOU ALL.
I remember Doug as a 6th grader. Always had a smile and that twinkle in his eyes. So sad.
I worked with Doug at Lithia in Ames. He from day one was open, cheerful, and worked very hard for his staff and customers. Had the pleasure of a few away from work times where I got to know Doug in a more personal manner. He was very proud of his children and his family. He was and is an amazing person and one of those that impacts your life in a positive way. Quick to laugh, sharp witted, we lost a good man. My prayers go out to his loving family and children during this dark time. God bless you and God Bless Doug.
Family of Doug, he always had a smile and kind words every time we saw him. He was a friend of ours and to our son Ryan Johnson. Our prayers and sympathy to you all.
Terry and Mary Heidebrink
It was so sad to hear of Doug’s passing. He was a very very nice person to everyone he met. If you met him once you had just met a new friend. God bless Doug’s family and friends and give them comfort during this sad sad time. I can hear all the laughter and the jokes already when Doug meets his dad in heaven. I would love To see this reunion because I can already hear the laughter and see the love. Godspeed
You left us too soon. I will never forget all the memories we shared. We all love you and miss you so much.
Your wit and warm-heartedness will be missed. My sympathies go to your children, grandchildren, siblings and to your Mom. Watch over them, Doug!!
Gone to soon
