Doug Kuliema was one of the most stubborn men you would ever meet. Doug was born in Marion County Indiana to his parents Louis and Jacqueline Kuliema. He had three older siblings, Jacque, Peter, and Dan. Of the three he is survived by his brother Dan. Doug married Jane (Waltz) Kuliema, the love of his life, on February 23, 1974 and shortly after they had their daughter, LeeAnn.
Despite his stubbornness, Doug was well loved by many friends and family members. Doug may no longer be with us but he is survived by his daughter LeeAnn, and his granddaughters Danie and Liz. They loved him very much and will always cherish the memories of Saturday morning pancakes at his home in North Webster. Doug enjoyed playing golf with his group of friends, and visiting them in Florida when he could. He also loved music and singing karaoke in his younger days. Some of his greatest hits were “House of the Rising Sun”, ” Teddy Bear”, and “Color my World” (Doug and his wife’s song). His granddaughters have found memories of him singing songs to them starting at a very young age. His daughter LeeAnn will always remember the scent of Paul Sabastian that lingered after giving him a hug. This stubborn, lovable man will be missed greatly, but it is a comfort to know he will be with his wife, Jane, who passed seven years prior to him, once again.
Friends may join the family for a memorial gathering on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 6 to 8p.m. at Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw. An additional opportunity to celebrate Doug in a lighter, more social setting is in the planning stages for Spring-Summer.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to North Webster Fire & EMS or the North Webster Food Pantry with envelopes available at the funeral home.
