Douglas "Doug" Weldon Noland

Sep 16, 1967 May 31, 2024

Douglas Weldon Noland passed from this mortal life Friday, May 31st, 2024 into the loving arms of our Savior Jesus Christ. While on this earth he held many titles, Husband, dad, son, brother, boss and ultimately best friend.

His legacy is carried on by his wonderful wife, Tanya, his three children, Josie, Hadlie, and Wesley. Two sons-in-law, Sam and Max. And his beautiful granddaughter that he loved so much, Alaina.

He was born September 16th, 1967, to his parents Weldon & Judy Noland, he holds a special place in our family as the only son of 4 children. Being the only boy with three sisters he quickly mastered the art of teasing. Often the saying from our parents was “Doug, if it is not fun for everyone, then it is not fun.” He loved Dr. Pepper and melted chocolate chips with peanut butter. It was well known that if mom went to use the chocolate chips and they were gone. Doug was the one to blame. He would also often talk us girls into making chocolate chip cookies, just so he could eat the dough.

His love for the outdoors and hunting began at a very young age. In a family journal at 8 years old Doug shared of his time with our dad up on the mountain, he shares the story of when Weldon taught him to spot a deer. He was our dads right hand man. He says “Dad always takes me up on the mountain with him for one or two days. Dad shows me how to spot for deer signs. He shows me what to look for. You don’t look for the whole deer. You look for a part of his body or the blink of his eye.”. He finished the entry by saying “I enjoy being in the mountains more than anything.” And that he did, he was always finding a way to get out and camp or just simply be out in nature, whether it was for hunting or enjoyment.

In the same journal he goes on to say “I like to go to the job with my dad and help him on Saturday. I like to work around his shop on the machinery.” He sure did love that. At 14 he began working at Noland and Son out in the field in the summers. As Weldon, our dad, began stepping back from the company and he took on the role of Vice President, he was able to share his talents. This included showing confidence and belief in those that he was over. Always having integrity in all that he did and trying to instill that company wide. Over the many years, he so much enjoyed creating and maintaining friendships in the industry. Though he is gone, we know he will continue to work right alongside us.

Doug married his sweetheart Tanya Dutson, on February 8th, 1992. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Jordan River temple on January 27th, 1995. In our many days together, he often told me how much he enjoyed spending time with her. And always referred to her as “my beautiful wife”. Although no one could match his love for the outdoors and hunting, she did a very good job supporting him through this and they share so many memories of this together.

Raising their three kids together brought him lots of joy, each of them were so important to him. He was proud of each of their accomplishments. In 2017 Tanya and Doug built their dream home in Cedar Fort. He really loved living away from everything.

In a moment of darkness, a decision made in haste, Doug passed by his own hand. And we will all miss him forever. Doug was an organ donor, passing on gifts of new beginnings.

He is survived by not only his wife Tanya, his daughters Josie (Samuel) and Hadlie (I. Max), his son Wesley, granddaughter Alaina, his parents; Weldon and Judy Noland, His sisters Jackie Boren (Herk), Kathleen Dotson (Jared), Cheryl Williams (Jeff), his in-laws Wes and Sharon Dutson, but also sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, Aunts, Uncles, and many friends.

He was welcomed to the other side by Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins and several great dogs.

We love you Doug!

We are often very hard on ourselves or believe we are alone. Don’t believe the lies that you tell yourself. It is okay to ask for help. You are loved more than you realize.
