David T. Wilson age 75, passed away on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 in Peshtigo. He was born at home on May 17, 1945 in Onalaska, WI to Howard and Frances (nee Henry) Wilson. David graduated from Slinger High School Class of 1963 and was an auto body technician for 25 years at Goeden’s Auto Body and then a welder at Faustel Corporation until his retirement. On August 14, 1965 he married Gwen Schellinger and began their family.

David is survived by his wife Gwen, daughters; Wendi Haubrich, Debra (Doug) Karlin and Joy (fiancé Bill) Wilson, grandchildren; Troy (fiancé Amber) Wilson, Prairie Haubrich, Allyson Karlin, Briana Karlin, Tim (special friend Elaine) Judnic and Caroline Judnic and great-grandson on the way. David is further survived by his siblings; Charlotte Stalsburg, Opal (Don) Ensenbach, Betsy Wigner, Nerma (Roger) Strehlow, Milan (Connie) Wilson and two sisters-in-law, his in-laws; Jerome (Kathy) Schellinger Jr., Charles Schellinger, James (Janet) Schellinger and Judy (Joseph) Pieper.

He was preceded in death by his parents, siblings; Ralph, Hubert, Justin and Danny Wilson, Shelby Carsten and brother-in-law Mark Schellinger.

We always joked that Dad had nine lives, even surviving stage 4 head and neck cancer. He loved building race cars, snowmobiling, hunting, restoring vintage cars, watching football and NASCAR, and he especially loved spending time with his grandchildren.

Though we never kept in touch much since our graduation from SHS, it was great to see David (Willy) at our recent get together in 2018 for the 55th year reunion of the 1963 class. I shared a number of classes with him back then, and he was always a fun guy. Sorry to hear of his passing,

Aunt Gwen, Wendy, Debbie and Joy. My heart is breaking for you all. When I seen Uncle Dave's picture it brought back a flood of memories of my dad and him. I will tell you girls that it is hard to lose a dad, as you are experiencing first hand. It has been almost 20 years since my dad died and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him and all that my boys missed out on growing up without their #1 fan. Hold on to the memories and know that we are all thinking of you and hurting with you. Sending virtual hugs to all of you during this most difficult time. It's times like these when a person realizes just how important family is and the importance of staying in touch. It seems like as we grow older and wiser, we realize it more so than we did when we were young and living the American dream and running wild.

Love and miss you all,
Mark and Sharon (Wilson) Johnson
