Douglas Edward Mix

November 27, 1954 — September 18, 2023


Douglas Edward Mix, 68, began his adventures in Heaven on Monday, September 18, 2023. Doug was born October 27, 1954 in Millville, New Jersey, to the late Reverend Arthur Mix and Carol Mix (nee Dixon).

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Greg Mix.

Doug was a force of nature. He lit up every room he entered. He knew a thousand jokes and five ways to fix any problem. Doug lived in Columbia Station where he raised his family until 2009. He was an active member of Columbia United Methodist Church. He was a member of the church board and a table parent on Wednesday nights. Doug regularly attended the Columbia Raider’s football games where he enjoyed watching his daughters march in the band. A conversation with Doug always included a laugh.

Doug retired from Electrolux as Vice President of Regulatory Affairs in 2008. In 2009 he moved to Strongsville so that he and Lois could be slightly closer to their grandchildren. Doug leaves behind a legacy of kindness, love, helpfulness, humor, and encouragement. He will be missed.

Doug leaves behind innumerable friends who were impacted by his life. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Lois Mix (Stokes); his two daughters, Rae Jackson (Ron) of Kenosha, Wisconsin and Erin Downs (Andrew) of Strongsville; his siblings, Mike Mix (Jan) of Leavenworth, Kansas, Kathy Dulinsky (Dave) of Shorewood, Illinois, and Trisha Mix (Greg) of Troy, Missouri; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and loved ones. His memory will be held strong by his four beloved grandchildren, Bekah, Eli, Ella, and Lena Downs.

Services will be held Saturday, October 7, 2023 in Pleasant Valley Christian Church, 12193 W. Pleasant Valley Rd., Middleburg Heights. There will be a visitation beginning at 10 a.m. with memorial service to begin at 11 a.m. The family will host a lunch following services.  Condolences and special memories of Doug can be shared with his family online at
