Douglas Roy Winberg, of Moscow, ID, died unexpectedly on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, at his home. He was 39 years old. Doug was born April 18, 1975, in Seattle, WA to Rhea Mann Winberg and Robert John Winberg. He grew up in Edmonds, WA, graduated from Edmonds-Woodway High School in 1994, and went on to attend Edmonds Community College and Spokane Falls Community College. In 2006, Doug accepted a position at the University of Idaho as Instrumentation Supervisor in the Chemistry Department. On January 7, 2012, at Meadowinds, he married his loving and devoted wife, Nancy Cheadle, of East Wenatchee, WA. Doug had a great sense of humor and an infectious smile. He enjoyed fixing electronics and had a collection of vintage radios and rotary dial telephones. He loved living in the Palouse area and could often be found riding his bike and hiking with his family, or hunting treasures at yard sales and thrift stores. He is also known for his scrumptious grilled plank salmon.
Doug is survived by his loving wife, Nancy; his one year old son, Daniel Paul; his mother, Rhea; brother, Jeffrey J. Winberg of Mount Vernon, WA; nephew, J.J. Winberg; sister, April M. Miklautsch (Dietrich) of Sammamish, WA; and nephews, Landon, Kyler and Trey Miklautsch. Doug is also survived by a large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, neighbors, co-workers, and friends, especially his very dear friend, Frank Ramirez. Doug was preceded in death by his father in 1992.
A private Burial was held at Moscow Cemetery on Friday, August 1, 2014.
