David Christopher Eichenberg

Lansing - Age 61, joined his deceased family, including his Scorpion brothers on Thursday, May 30, 2019 while riding his motorcycle.

David graduated from Churchill High School in Livonia in 1976 and Lake Superior State in Sault St. Marie, MI with a bachelor's degree in fresh waters and fisheries, managed Parts Galore in the Detroit area for several years, then worked for the Corp of Engineers in Mississippi for 3 years, owned his own water analysis business and finished his working career with the State of Michigan, Secretary of State. David was an avid motorcyclist all his life and was a member of the Scorpions Motorcycle Club of Calhoun County. He loved his many rescued dogs, the out of doors, fly fishing, being near water, learning about anything under the sun and helping his wife unsnarl her electronics (well, maybe not so much). He will be remembered for his wit, intelligence and kind heart.

Surviving are his loving wife of 10 years, Lori Kriebel; his 4 siblings, Allen (Pat), Larry (Laura), Kathy and Terry(Bea); 3 stepchildren, Aaron (Carolyn Marie Keeney) Rivera, Nate (Kalee Charles) Rivera and Corey (Chris Purdy) Rivera; 3 grandsons, Joseph, Dan and Luca and numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews and a host of loyal Scorpion brothers.
