Doug was born to Don and Sylvia Hurm in Mitchell, SD on September 13, 1952. His childhood years were spent hunting and fishing the Black Hills with brother, Dennis. He and Dennis helped the folks run a motel in Spearfish, before moving to the ranch in St. Onge in 1967. They started a dairy and ran some sheep. Hunting remained a passion. He married Vicki Johnson in Deadwood on Valentine’s Day 1977. They welcomed son, Doug in 1978 and daughter Dani Jo in 1991. Doug worked on the dairy before transitioning over to Angus cattle. He loved the ranch life, was blessed to be married for 42 years and adored his children. Wife Vicki was the love of his life and granddaughter, Madison Jo, his pride and joy.

He is survived by Vicki and Madison; sisters-in-law, Cindy Hurm, Debbie (George) Dean, Kim Johnson and brother-in-law, Terry Petty. Also surviving are nieces, Tracy (Rodney) Benson and family, Jessica (Wilbur) Holcomb and Nikki Holcomb; nephews, Travis (Val) Hurm and family, Mark (Grace) Johnson and family and Ty Petty. He was preceded in death by his children, Dougie and Dani Jo Hurm; brother, Dennis Hurm; parents, Don and Sylvia and in-laws, Paul and Ramona Johnson.

There are no services planned as his ashes will be scattered on the ranch privately. A celebration of life will be planned at a later date.
