James R. McDougal (Doogo), 53, passed away, at his residence, on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Racine on June 28, 1966, the son of Robert and the late Bonnie (nee: Twesme) McDougal.
Jim graduated from J.I. Case High School. On July 20, 2002, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, he was united in marriage to Anna Alfano. Jim had been employed by Racine Unified School District for the past 31 years as the Warehouse Supervisor. He was a member of St. Rita’s Catholic Church, Roma Lodge, and the Moose Lodge #437. Jim enjoyed spending time up north in Eagle River with his family. His favorite past times included boating, fishing, hunting, golfing, cooking, bowling, shooting pool, snowmobiling, and watching the Brewers, Badgers and Packers. His most prize possessions were his two sons, Hayden and Domenic, “The Yahoos”. He enjoyed being their Cub Scout leader and loved watching them play sports. Above all else, Jim was a great father, husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend. He always lived life to the fullest, and his positive attitude and laugh could bring a smile to anyone’s face. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Surviving are his wife, Anna; their twin sons, Hayden and Domenic; his father, Robert McDougal; two sisters, Rose (Tom) Petersen, Jean (William) Mueller; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Buddy and Donna Alfano, all of Racine, sister-in-law, Lisa (Dennis) Gehrke, of Union Grove; nieces and nephews, Kevin (Julie Zaja) Fegler, Karla Fegler, Scott (Kristin) Petersen, Hannah and Isabella Gehrke; great nieces, Marcella Loomis, and Audrey Petersen. He was preceded in death by his mother.
The family extends a special thank you to the staff at Froedtert Hospital on 7CFAC (especially Molly, Mary Rodgers, Dr. Saeian, and Dr. Patel) and to Heartland Hospice for all of their loving and compassionate care and support during Jim’s time of need.
