Patrick H. Doom
March 17, 1925 – February 6, 2019
Doom, Patrick H., 93, of Wichita, Kansas peacefully passed away at home surrounded by family on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. He was born on March 17, 1925 in Leachville, Arkansas. Pat proudly served in WWII as a paratrooper in the 17th Airborne Division. After the service, he graduated from the University of Missouri earning a Bachelor of Business degree. He entered the business world at Lacks Appliances in Houston, Texas before working for Montgomery Ward as manager for the appliance department for 25 years. He co-owned Fast Print with his wife until finally “retiring” at 90-years-old. They were also involved in real estate for 30 years. Pat loved to work and engage with people as much as he loved his family. He always enjoyed activities, from concerts and theatre, to motorcycles, camping, boating and skiing. Generally, anything fun. He always had a smile, a tune to whistle or sing and an unmatched sense of humor that kept him forever young at heart. He was preceded in death by his parents, Herman (Clarence) and Muriel Doom; brother, Bobby Doom; sister, Imogene Mason; son, Tim Doom; granddaughter, Misha Davis. Survivors include his loving wife of 45 years, Linda Doom; children, Dan Doom, Mike (Patty) Doom, Michelle (Jason) Dibbens, Ryan (Jeni) Doom; 8 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Celebration of Life service will be at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at Countryside Christian Church, 1919 S. Rock Road in Wichita. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice.

I got to know Mr. Doom through his son Dan Doom. Dan and I went to WSU, shared an apartment and trained together. About the time Mr. Doom was leaving Montgomery Wards is when I met him and he always had a big smile for me and anyone else that he met. When him and his wife started Fast Print is when I got to know him better and would utilize their service which gave me the opportunity to talk to both of them. When Mr. Doom found out that I purchased home's to rent and sell we had a lot more in common. Then when Mr. Doom found out that I was in the Marine Corps, well that put the icing on the cake so to speak. Him and I really had a lot in common and was able to discuss many things relating to our military, politics and the world in general. Mr. Doom was really a very sharp and intelligent man. I knew deep down he had a very good perspective on life and the world he lived in and shared this with his family and friends. I also knew that he loved them and especially his country that he fought for, and would of gave his life for in World War II. I am going to miss our conversations, his big smiles but most of all the loss of another one of our greatest veterans of World War II who understood the value of freedom and why we go to war so that we may live in a great country like the United States of America. I will miss you Patrick Doom. Your friend forever Jerry W. Williams
