He was preceded in death by his parents and one grandchild, Kyle David Walker.
David enjoyed his life and lived it to the fullest by fossil hunting, boating, fishing, hunting, traveling, completing puzzles, and maintaining being a lifelong learner - particular with studying WWII (Guess what? We won the war!!!). David was a member of the Englewood United Methodist Church and was a charter member of Lord of the Lakes church in Winneconne, Wisconsin.
At David's request, no services will be held. Thank you to Englewood Community Funeral Home for handling all arrangements and for being a support through the challenge of loss.
The family would also like to thank Tidewell Hospice for supporting David and keeping him comfortable and at peace through the last weeks.
