He was able to live out his dreams and retire to northern Wisconsin where he was able to enjoy nature, fishing and golf for many years. While living in northern Wisconsin, he and his wife, Carol delivered Meals on Wheels and he worked part-time for a golf course.

Dave cherished his friends, many of whom he had since childhood. He spoke fondly of his days working at USD and of his former supervisors and coworkers. He loved telling stories and making people laugh.

The family is planning a small gathering for Dave's family and close friends to celebrate his life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Jude's Children Research Hospital.
