David was a lifelong member of St. Jerome’s Catholic Church in Wonewoc. He was a hard worker who enjoyed all the jobs he held throughout his life. He enjoyed his time working on the family farm, working on the railroad, working at Ray-O-Vac, and other various jobs. He enjoyed working in general and was always willing to help anyone who needed it. He loved to tell stories of his family, his friends, and his work. He enjoyed playing cards, doing cross word puzzles, watching baseball and game shows.

David had seven grandchildren, Vince (Betsey) Meckstroth, Melissa (Stewart) Whitson, Mark Meckstroth, Victor (Lauren) Meckstroth, Max (Maura) Meckstroth, Brooke Biermeier and Drew Biermeier. He has nine great-grandchildren. He would always end his phone conversation by saying give everyone “smackers” for me and tell them that “I love them”. His grandchildren remember his many stories and that he was a joking and caring man to them.
