Douglas Wayne Mossburg, 49, of Frederick, Maryland passed away on June 2, 2023 at Frederick Health Hospital. The family is deeply saddened and shocked by his sudden death. Doug was born on September 13, 1973.
Doug is survived and deeply missed by the love of his life Amy (née Main) of 4 years; and his stepsons, Benjamin and Nathan Nedrow. His memory lives on with his brother Nevin Mossburg and wife, Lillie; sister-in-law Diane Harding and husband Tony; sister-in-law Debra Temple and husband James; sister-in-law Brenda Price and husband Timmy; mother-in-law Becky Main, numerous nieces and nephews as well as extended family, friends, and coworkers he touched during his short life.
Doug was predeceased by his father Charles; his mother, Patsy; and his father-in law, Richard Main.
He was a 1992 graduate of Thomas Johnson High School. Doug recently retired after 30 years of working for Frederick County Highway. Most of his time was spent in the Urbana district. He was a master at operating equipment and won several awards when he was younger. He was highly respected by his co-workers.
Doug spent most of his adult life as the caregiver for his parents. He enjoyed spending time with his father and brother hunting and fishing. He was very proud of being a commercial crabber on the weekends, catching crabs and then steaming them for others. It brought him great joy when others commented about how great his crabs were. He also loved to butcher with family and friends. Recently, he enjoyed finding new recipes for making different types of sausages. Doug loved to learn. It was common to see him watching a YouTube video on how to do something new. Doug had recently found a new love of traveling. He especially enjoyed spending time in the Northern Neck of Virginia. The family recently went on their first cruise and had plans to go on many more. Doug absolutely loved it!
Even though Doug was a husband and a father for only four short years, he brought such joy and happiness to his wife and sons. He stepped right into his role as stepfather and was so proud of the boys in everything they did, especially watching them on the football field. They say the men who take care of their mothers make the best husbands and Doug was the absolute best.
