David L Frosch, RM2 (1947-2015)
SAUK PRAIRIE - David "Dave" L. Frosch, age 67, passed away on Saturday, June 6, 2015, at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison after a "super" heroic battle with cancer. He was born in Baraboo on Nov. 5, 1947, to the late Joseph C. and Mary M. (Milner) Frosch. He was a graduate of Sauk Prairie High School, class of 1966. Dave was a proud Navy Veteran who served during the Vietnam War aboard the Destroyer USS Waddell as a Communications Specialist; he was especially proud of his top-secret clearance and ability to use Morse code.
He married the love of his life, Louise M. Breunig, at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Sauk City on April 8, 1972. Dave worked construction for many years before getting a position as a city carrier for the Postal Service in Baraboo where he worked for 28 years, retiring in 2008. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, coaching baseball, and spending time with his family, grandchildren, and many friends. One of Dave's goals was to have a place where his kids and grandkids could enjoy the outdoors and family for years to come, and he made this happen by finding the perfect piece of land in the woods. Dave enjoyed telling jokes and making people laugh. He was a regular at the Sauk City Mobil and Cenex for his daily scratch-off and coffee. Dave was a talented sketch artist and cartoonist, which was a pastime he enjoyed with his grandchildren. He was also a street rodder; and looked forward to the annual trip to Minneapolis for the Back to the 50's car show with Louise, Deanna, Ken, and Denise. He was a lifelong member of St. Aloysius Catholic Church and the Lachmund-Cramer VFW Post 7694.
He is survived by his wife, Louise; three children, Dave J. (Tracy) Frosch of Sauk City, Deanna Frosch of Sauk City, Darin (Sarah) Frosch of Prairie du Sac; four grandchildren, Carley, Joe, Boden, and Parker Frosch; two sisters, Diane Loper (Bud Styer), Denise (Ken) Roelke; and brother, Dan (Jackie) Frosch. He is further survived by numerous brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by twin infant siblings, Debra and Dawn; and a nephew, Joseph Daniel Frosch. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 12, 2015, at ST. ALOYSIUS CATHOLIC CHURCH, Sauk City. A visitation will be held at HOOVERSON FUNERAL HOME, Sauk City, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 11, 2015, and from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. the day of service at the funeral home.
