Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, neighbor, and friend was called home on June 23, 2021, after complications of heart related conditions. Dave was born on March 20, 1955, in Milwaukee, WI to the late John and Audrey (Glaser) Pischke. After high school graduation, Dave worked for 43 years at R. R. Donnelley in building maintenance until June 27, 2017. After retirement, Dave worked odd jobs and part-time for his son at Peterson Welding Machine Co.
Dave and Sue celebrated 43 years of marriage on April 7, 2021. Dave was the love of Sue’s life, always inspiring her to be a better person. Dave loved spending time with family and friends, and especially cooking for them. He enjoyed time up north hunting at Tigerton, working in his garage on projects for family and friends, fishing, metal work, a good game of parcheesi, and a drink in a red solo cup with friends.
Dave had a huge heart, always knowing when someone needed a helping hand. We will remember his generosity, his know-how and his humor.
Dave will be incredibly missed by his wife, Susan; children, Matt (Tera) Pischke and Nicole (Frank) Graham; grandchildren, Ethan, Gabriella, William, and Grant; brothers, Al (Mary), Jack and Pat Pischke; brother-in-law, John Moore; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Linda (Ken) VandenBush, Dan (Anna) Bonjean, Virginia (Mike) Goral, Sandy Conard, Carol (Doug) Zimmerman; and many other family and friends.
In addition to his parents, Dave is preceded in death by a sister, Sandy Moore; parents-in-law, Quintin and Lois Bonjean; and a brother-in-law, Tony Bonjean.
Visitation will be at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church, 312 Victoria St., from 2:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, with Rev. William Hoffman officiating the Funeral Mass at 6:00 p.m. Online condolences may be expressed at www.Prokowall.com.
Dave’s family would like to offer a special thank you to the first responders and hospital staff who cared for him. The family is also grateful for the compassionate and quick-thinking staff of Fleet Farm, who stepped in to help Dave when he collapsed at the store, and the Scoutmaster who attempted to resuscitate him.
