Douglas Arthur Cheesman passed away on August 21, 2021 at the age of 71, in his daughter’s home in Mesa, Arizona. His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage in facing life’s challenges with a resilient attitude. Despite these challenges Doug continued to always desire success and happiness in his children’s lives and spread joy and happiness to those around him.
Doug met his wife, Lark, while attending BYU after his mission to Mexico. They remained faithfully married until her passing in 2017. Together they had four children: Jennifer, Melissa, Paul and Todd. He is survived by many grandchildren who he was always happy to see and spend time with. His love of family was a constant theme throughout his life. Doug was actively involved in the LDS Church. He held numerous service positions until his medical condition no longer permitted active church service. His testimony of a loving Heavenly Father and the Savior Jesus Christ was something he held dear until the very end.
Doug will be honored in memorial service August 28th, 2021 at 11:00 AM at the LDS Church located on 10036 E Brown Road Mesa, AZ 85209.
