David enjoyed riding his motorcycle, playing music (especially Jazz), and had a special place in his heart for the homeless and supported the Union Gospel Mission Homeless Outreach. He also enjoyed sobriety for over 29 years and was an active member of AA. His greatest treasure was the time spent with his family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife, Sherri of Clearwater; children, Nickolaus (Amy) Bitzan of St. Paul, Starsha (Aaron) Froberg of White Bear Lake; grandchildren, Joseph David, John Ruger, William Jeffery; and extended family and dear friends.

David was preceded in death by his parents.

A Special Thank You to all those who have given their love and support to our family during this difficult time.
