David L. Fauske

May 8, 1940 — December 24, 2020

David La Verne Fauske, 80, of Viroqua, went home to be with the Lord December 24, 2020 of advanced Alzheimer’s at Our House Memory Care in Richland Center.  He was born May 8, 1940 to Lester and Myrtle (Walters) Fauske. He graduated from Viroqua High School in 1958. David married Marlene Cade on January 9, 1963. Soon after his marriage he joined the Army National Guard and served as a reserve for 6 years.  His life careers included owning a milk route, construction and factory work, office and management positions at Chrysler Corp. and NCR, farming and car salesman for 3 different dealerships.  In 1968, David trusted Christ as his Savior.  He attended church faithfully and served in several positions until his health no longer made it possible.  David loved people and found it easy to talk to anyone, whether it be stranger or friend.  His kindness, generosity and love will be missed by all who knew him.
