Douglas Edward Blakeslee

Doug Blakeslee, AKA: Meat Cutter Doug, AKA: Safeway Doug, AKA: Event Chef Doug, 58, passed away November 20th, 2018. Doug grew up in Fircrest where he swam in the Fircrest pool, played summer games in the streets with all the neighborhood kids, and spent snowy days and nights at the top of "The Steepest" with a bon fire and a sled. He would often say "I'm the Mayor of Fircrest but nobody knows it, I run the streets" then he'd laugh. Doug was known for many one-liners such as "Thank you for letting me talk way too much" or "the only thing that's fair is the Puyallup fair" and "The most precious thing in the world is time."
Doug’s 3 loves were his family, AA, and his Harley Road Glide. Doug rode cross-country twice from WA to the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Doug showed his love for the people in his life by cooking great meals. He was a chef and then a meat cutter at Safeway and he knew good food! Doug’s favorite meals to cook were eggs benedict, prime rib, and his personal favorite, spaghetti.
Doug will be deeply missed by his mother, Judith. His 4 children, Christopher, Tiffaney, James, and Robert. The mother of his children, Janet. 6 grandchildren, Kaitlynn, Carolyn, Julian, Angela, Allison, and Jenna. Sisters, Janie, Julie (Bob), brother Jeff (Laura), 4 nieces, 2 nephews, his girlfriend Debbie, and his AA family.
Please join the family and celebrate Doug's life: Sunday, December 9th, 1 O'clock, at Mason United Methodist Church, 2710 N. Madison St, Tacoma, WA, 98407. The lower entry area.
