OF SPECIAL NOTE
FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND CO-WORKERS ARE GREATLY
saddened by the passing of Doug Stundon, of Chey-enne,
Wyoming. He was 66. Loyalty was a quality that
well described Doug and one that greatly contributed to
his longevity with the City of Cheyenne Board of Public
Utilities. As an employee, Doug ensured that his everyday
tasks included nothing less than the dedicated delivery of
accuracy and excellent customer service to his co-workers
and to the broader Cheyenne community.
Doug served on the Board of Public Utilities for more than
32 years. His initial introduction to the Board was as a
utility worker in October 1983.
With a proven work ethic and a desire to grow, Doug was
promoted to Operations and Maintenance Distribution
Crew Chief in 1992. He continued his advancement, and
in 2006, he was promoted to Utility Supervisor for the
Operations and Maintenance Distribution Division. He
held this position until he retired in 2016.
Doug’s career was exemplified his leadership, mentorship,
and a desire to continually improve and set an example
for the incoming generation, including his son, Bo, who
currently works for the Board of Public Utilities.
Although dedicated to work, Doug was also an avid
motorcycle rider, but his greatest commitment was to his
family. He is survived by his wife, Deb Stundon, children,
Erica Brown, Bo (Tricia) Stundon, Dawn Stundon, and Jake
Stundon, all of Cheyenne, Claire (Ben) Donis of LaPorte,
Colorado, Chris (Janelle) Etzel of Fort Collins, Colorado, and
Daniel (Kylie Engle) Streetman of Wellington, Colorado;
grandchildren, Steven, Olivia, Dustin, Taelan, Timothy,
Michael, Sonny, Jasmine, Hannah, Christian, Makenzi, and
Ashlyn; and sisters, Carol Bartow of Cheyenne and Bonnie
Kirkland of Casper, Wyoming.
“Doug Stundon was a dedicated employee in operations
and maintenance water distribution. Doug always had a
great attitude. He was very committed to his job and the
people he served. Doug was a good friend and he will be
greatly missed,” said Board of Public Utilitiews Director
Brad Brooks in a written tribute.
Doug touched many lives and left an imprint that will never
be forgotten. Contributions may be made in his name to
the Alzheimer’s Association.
