David Bergquist passed away peacefully on December 18, surrounded by family. He was 82 years old.
Born May 3, 1941, David was raised by Evelyn Bergquist in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He served in the Army as a medic during the Vietnam war, and later was a partner owner of Northland Packaging.
David was an avid golfer, fisherman, and hunter and lived much of his life on Oneida Lake in Brewerton, NY. He was an avid pitch player, joke teller and was known to enjoy a Manhattan or two. Many happy years were spent with his wife Rita at home and camping. David touched everyone with his kindness-friends and family, and the furry friends he held dear.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife Rita Bergquist, his children, Michael Bergquist, James Bergquist, Doug Bergquist and Kim Capria (Rich); stepdaughter Janelle Perry (Michael); his grandchildren Michael Bergquist Jr., Brittany Bergquist, Shane Bergquist, Aaron Bergquist, Sydney Bergquist, Chelsey McLin (Ian), and Lindsay Perry; his sister Sally Booth; as well as several great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Kathleen (Kay), stepson Charles "Tuna" Lord, brother Harold Bergquist, and sister Harriet Steck.
