David Scott Walberg, of Mora, Minnesota, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on February 19, 2019 at his residence in Mora. He was 58 years old.

David was born on September 28, 1960 in Saint Paul, Minnesota to parents Leonard and Wanetta (Sanders) Walberg. He grew up in Lino Lakes and attended Circle Pines High School. He later went on to complete his GED at age 21 from Pine Technical College. He moved to Mora in about 1978 following his sister Carol. He worked at Sheller Globe (later as EPC) from about 1979 to 1996. He then was employed by Land O Lakes (Dean Foods) from 1997 until 2017. On September 11, 1981, David was united in marriage to Mary Wicklund at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Brunswick MN. Together they lived in Mora and built their home on the Snake River where they raised their two daughters Sara and Sally. They eventually divorced.

On July 18, 1998, David married Kit Blackowiak at the First Lutheran Church in Rush City MN. Through this union he gained two additional children, Tausha and Jason. In November 2014, David endured the loss of his daughter Sally and his newborn granddaughter Brooklyn, which forever altered his remaining years. He was deeply saddened by these losses. Kit and Dave then divorced and he continued to reside in Mora.

David loved cooking, cars, football, NASCAR, gardening, outdoor sports, singing, and finding deals. He was very generous and kind, and would give without hesitation to his family and friends in need. He was so very proud of his kids and grandkids. David had a strong inner strength and work ethic. He celebrated over 34 years of sobriety and was involved in AA in the early years. He instilled in his kids that they could do anything as long as they worked hard for it. He was a loving father, brother, son, spouse, grandfather-the best you could have! Family, unconditional love & kindness to all were his guiding principles. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and all that knew him.

David was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Gary, Richard, and Robert; daughter Sally; and granddaughters, Brooklyn and Katlin.

He is survived by his daughters, Sara (Mike) Telander of Otsego, Tausha (Dan) Dunlap of North Branch, and son Jason Blackowiak of Eden Prairie; brother John (Audrey) of Ogilvie; sisters, Jean Crawford of Forest Lake; Janet Mategko of Blaine; Carol Froemming of Mora; sister-in-law Bernadette Walberg of Coon Rapids; grandchildren, Allissa, Haylee, Gracey, Axel, Leo, and Hazel; nephews, Dennis, Craig, Clinton, Robert, Jerry, Mike, Garrison, Joseph, and Fabrice; nieces, Julie, Jean, Janet, Jeannine, Lisa, Stacy, Bridgget, and Carolyn; as well as numerous great nieces and nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Although I did not know his family, they are in my thoughts and prayers.
