David Harold Thielges, the son of James and Patricia Thielges was born on March 27, 1965.
Dave grew up in Emmett, Idaho, where he attended Emmett High School. Throughout his youth, and his time at Emmett High School, Dave was active in all sports; but there was one that he loved and excelled in most: football. Dave had a prolific football career at Emmett, receiving the Dean Deen award for most valuable player his senior year, 1983.
Aside from football, however, Dave loved his family and friends dearly and was an avid hunter and fisherman. After high school, Dave attended the University of Idaho, where he received his bachelor's degree. In 1992, Dave married Cathy Leamy. Soon after their marriage, they had a son, Ryan David Thielges. Although Dave and Cathy went their separate ways, Dave remained a constant figure in Ryan's life until his passing on April 2, 2013.
Dave knew how to have fun but he also loved and cared for his family and friends with a deep passion. His legacy remains in his son Ryan and all of the fond memories that those who knew and loved him will always hold close to their hearts.
David is survived by his mother, Patricia; his son, Ryan; his brothers and sisters, Richard, Jimmie, Robert, Priscilla, Karen and their families.
