Doug Moser, 51, passed away February 28, 2019. He was born in San Diego, California to Jerry and Dodie Moser (Olson). Doug’s early years were in Snohomish, but most of his young adulthood was spent working alongside his family in their business the Cougar Inn and developing the popular 59er Diner located in Lake Wenatchee. At the time of his death, he resided in Lynnwood WA and was employed as the General Manager at Chown Hardware in Bellevue.

Doug leaves behind the two most precious women in his life, his loving wife Cari, and his smart, artistic and beautiful daughter Raegan. He is also survived by his twin brother Darrell and his sister-in-law Donna, his sister Nicole Olson, his father Jerry and Karen (Mom II), his mother Dodie Olson, nephews Cameron and Jordan, as well as his best friends T.R. Gibson and Ed Hall. Many other extended family and dear friends will also miss him greatly.

Doug was an amazing man that we lost too soon. He brought creative energy and high level of fun to everything he did. His family, friends, and co-workers loved his big personality, kindness, and wit. The heartbreaking sadness of his death leaves his family and loved ones overwhelmed with grief. There are no words for our sorrow at the loss of such a wonderful man. Doug had a sweetness in his heart, a beautiful soul, quick mind, and a generous spirit. Our family will never be the same without him, We will never ever forget the joy he brought into our lives.

I will always cherish the memories working with Doug at the Cougar Inn, I will always remember him for his unconditional friendship and kind heart, and he was the most desirable bachelor back then, he was always respectful and a gentleman. I will always remember your calming smile.
With respect to the Olson and Moser Families.

Doug and the whole Cougar Inn family and crew became my second family when I moved to Lake Wenatchee. They welcomed me with open arms. Doug would always come in with a big smile, energetic and ready to work. He was intelligent, fun and adventurous, always making everyone smile and laugh! So many wonderful memories! Love and hugs to his family.

I had the privilege of working with Doug at Chown. He had an amazing eye for the showroom design and he often did the carpentry work himself to save on the budget. He was a meticulous and creative craftsman. But the thing I remember most was his concern for the people he worked with. He always put people first, showing them respect. He was appreciated by his staff and coworkers and everyone enjoyed his sense of humor and quick wit. He loved to share about his love for his wife and daughter; they were his real passion. He did his job well, but said that he did it for them.
I am sorry to hear that he left us so soon. Prayers of condolence for his family in their loss.

I'm proud to say I became Doug's (and Darrell) friend in middle school and spent the rest of my youth and young adulthood spending a lot of time with him and that circle of friends doing many fun things. Always fun, from going to movies, to concerts, great party's and various exciting trips. I'll always remember us playing tennis, learning to water ski and "skurf", shootin' pool and some epic pickel ball matches in Maui amongst many other things. Doug always seemed to me to be a very confident person and was also quite bright with a great sense of humor. And that awesome head of hair back then! 😉
I'll always remember him working away at The Cougar Inn, waiting tables or tending bar, with Tom, whom I highly respected and miss, keeping things in order and all the crew taking great care of their customers .
I'll never forget him and regret that we lost contact. I don't know much about his life since those times but I hope that he achieved many of his desires and goals. My thoughts are with him and his family. Goodbye my friend, you are missed.

I remember Doug as a student of mine while attending school in Leavenworth.He was a somewhat quiet reserved student that was happy go lucky young man. He wax a hard worker who you would be lookinga very hard worker on the weekends at Couger Inn on Lake Wenatchee. His loss is a shock at such a young age. I will always remember him and his brother for there jovial attitude about life and looking forward to a wrld of adventure when they graduated from high school. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

Doug is such a big part of my life at the Cougar Inn! Always so much fun and very caring! At the end of a long day, Tom would throw the boat keys at the boys and off we would go to sit on the lake under the stars and no one would speak! Then back to the dock, calm and ready to drive home! I will always consider Doug one of my family! I’m sure God had open arms for u Doug! Love to his family! Conwon
