On December 2, 1951, he was united in marriage to Betty Nevill at the United Methodist Church in Estherville. The couple farmed together and were married for 67 years.

David loved to fly, fish, and golf. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially during their yearly fishing trip up north. The family has been taking this trip since 1962. David loved the Minnesota Twins, attending many games throughout the years. David’s favorite time of day was when he would go to town to the seed shed to socialize with his buddies. He was a member of the United Methodist Church in Terril and Terril American Legion Walsh Post 432. He was honored with taking the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. in 2017.

David is survived by his wife Betty of Terril and his children Loni (Tracy) Brant of Terril, Kay (Jim) Voetmann of Ringsted, Alan (Tammy) Brant of Garner, and Lynn (Kevin) Paca of Britt. He is also survived by nine grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and his sister LuVaun Law of Belton, Missouri.
