Douglas Earl Breitkreutz was born on July 2, 1942 to Earl and Bernitha (Meeske) Breitkreutz in West Point, Nebraska. He was baptized at the West Point Hospital on July 2, 1942 and confirmed on March 25, 1956 at St. Paul Lutheran Church. Doug attended Wisner High School, graduating in 1960. Doug worked for Wisner Farmers Union, and began farming in 1962. Doug continued farming and harvesting crops for over 65 years.
Doug married Linda Vietor on August 9, 1970 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Wisner, NE. Doug and Linda were blessed with three children JR, Sarah, and Paul.
Doug was very involved in his church and community. Doug was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church Wisner and was a member of its choir for over 50 years, and also served on the Board of Stewardship. He was Past Treasurer of the Rural Water District #1 and served on the board for 15 years, Past President of the School District #39, served many years on the Rural Fire Board, and was Past President of the Farmers Union Co-op. He was honored by the Wisner Jaycees as the Outstanding Young Farmer and Nebraska Jaycee’s 1st Runner-Up for Outstanding Young Farmer in 1975. Doug was given the Good Neighbor Citation by AK-SAR-BEN and Omaha World Herald in 2000.
Doug loved to farm, spend time with his family, bird watch, garden, grilling out, drive around on his John Deere Gator, and loved to see things grow. He felt the best when he worked his hardest. He loved to work in the off season in the shop repairing and building things. Doug had a deep faith and would say, “To God Alone Be the Glory”.
