Douglas Eugene Peebler Jr., 40, of Loveland, CO passed away October 26, 2019 after a massive heart attack. He was born May 19, 1979 in Fairfield, Iowa to Doug and Sue Peebler. Doug graduated from Fairfield High School in 1998 then graduated from Indian Hills Community College in 2000 with an A.A.S. in Machine Technology. Doug worked as a machinist for 17 years and was scheduled to graduate this coming May from Front Range Community College with another Associate's degree in CAD Design along with a 3D Printing Certificate and Welding Certification. Doug married Brooke Pope on July 4, 2014 in Loveland but the two resided in Fairfield, IA until relocating to Loveland in 2016.
Doug, lovingly referred to as “Bear”, was truly a giant teddy bear of a man. Aside from his kind, easy-going, good-nature, he was gifted with many talents such as both manual and CNC machining, wood working, and extensive automotive and motorcycle knowledge. Doug loved music and guitars and was admired for his creativity and aptitude for making just about anything. He dearly loved his dogs and was a strong supporter for raising awareness about puppy mills.
Doug is survived by his wife Brooke; their three dogs Sancho, Susie Q and Billy; brother Dennis (Melanie) Peebler; nephews Dallas and Justin Peebler of Fairfield, IA; half brother Doug (Kristie) Rohme of Bonaire, GA; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents.
