Doug McKinney
July 20, 1953 – June 30, 2018
Montezuma, Iowa | Age 64

Douglas McKinney, 64 of Montezuma passed away Saturday, June 30, 2018 at his home in Montezuma. Douglas Arthur McKinney, the son of James and Maxine (Pronge) McKinney, was born on July 20, 1953 in Charles City, Iowa.

Doug graduated from Montezuma High School in 1972. He was a very talented musician and was a member of a band called The Fourth Estate. Following high school, Doug went to Drake University receiving his Bachelor Degree in Journalism and Broadcasting in 1977.

On October 4, 1980, Doug was united in marriage to Kathi Harding. To this union three children were born, Cody, Cory and Cari.

Doug worked for several years at Newton Manufacturing and also ran a D.J. service, Travel Tunes, for several years with his wife. In 1995, Doug and Kathi decided to open a steakhouse north of Knoxville naming it Rubes of Red Rock and later changing the name to Udders Steakhouse. Doug and Kathi later divorced but remained friends and sold the business in 2007. Following his mother’s death in 2013, Doug moved back to Montezuma.

Doug was an avid reader, enjoyed watching sports on T.V., and most of all, loved his coffee and cigarettes. He was also very involved with his children’s sports activities while they were growing up, coaching Cody and Cory’s baseball and basketball teams. Doug will be remembered most by his unique, “smartass” sense of humor and enjoyed getting a laugh out of people.

Doug’s memory will be honored by his children: Cody (& girlfriend, Amanda Bruce), Cory McKinney, and Cari (& Ben) McDermott all of Newton; a granddaughter, Rowyn McDermott of Newton; his ex-wife and very good friend, Kathi McKinney of Newton; longtime friend, Craig McClure; and many good friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Maxine McKinney.

Memorial services will begin at 2:00 pm Sunday, July 8, 2018 at the Holland-Coble Funeral Home in Montezuma.
Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family.
Holland-Coble Funeral Home of Montezuma is in charge of arrangements.
