David Allen Lindquist of Kanabec County passed away peacefully on Tuesday December 29, 2020 at his home surrounded by his adoring family. He was 72 years young.
Dave was born to parents, Lloyd and Florence (Miedema) Lindquist on October 25, 1948 in Mora, MN. He was raised on a farm with his brothers and sisters and he loved helping his Dad.
Early in life he was united in marriage to Jane Watkins and to this union Sandy Jane and Shaun David were born. Years later he found the love of his life Roberta Beaulieu and gained two adorable children, Nicole Marie and Terry Anthony. Tracy Lou was a bonus child. She and Sandy were inseparable growing up and Dave considered her as one of his own.
Dave joined the U.S. Marine Corps in April 1968 and served proudly for two years. Serving his country was one of his greatest accomplishments!
Dave received a degree in Welding from Pine Technical College. His many career moves include Police Officer, Auto Mechanic, and Construction Laborer for Local 563.
He enjoyed life to the fullest and his love for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren was like no other. Dave was a proud member of the Braham Moose Lodge, MDHA, NRA and Pheasants Forever. His hobbies included spending time with his family, fishing, playing cards, dancing, bingo, hunting, cabin life, going to the casino, auctions and garage sales, mud bogging and gardening. On any given day, he could be found tinkering in the garage on his many projects and was the type of guy that was always ready and willing to help family and friends in need.
Dave is at peace at his favorite fishing hole, with a drink in his hand. He lived one hell of a life; it was one hell of a ride. He will be forever in our hearts.
Dave is preceded in death by his parents Lloyd Lindquist and Florence (Willie) Rask, brother Randy, granddaughter Jocelyn Hoban, brother-in-law Lyle Peterson, sisters-in-law, Pammy O’Brien and Becky Mattison, niece Kelly Reynolds.
He is survived by his wife, Roberta “Berta”; children, Sandy (Mark) Luecken, Shaun Lindquist, Nicole (Derek) Hoban, Terry (Jamie) Baker and Tracy (Larry) Bock; 5 grandchildren, Hailey (Seth) Luecken-Coy, Chase Luecken, Cole Baker and Aden and Dominic Hoban; 2 great grandchildren, Praxton and Kohen Coy; siblings, Larry (Mary), Chuck (Betty), Judy (Gale) Dawson, Cindy Peterson, Don (Vicki) and Deb (Dewey) Reynolds; sisters and brothers-in-law, Robert Beaulieu, Rose (Wyatt) Freitag, Diana Piipke, Dwight (Laura) Erb, and Nathan O’Brien; mother-in-law Esther Rohde; as well as many other family members and friends.
