David Allen Dworak

David Allen Dworak, 63, passed away on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, from
multiple health complications. He was born on April 28, 1960, to the
late Lee A. and Joan Ann (Van Den Plas) Dworak. On October 21, 1989,
he married Brenda A. Velicer in Green Bay. After graduating from
Denmark High School in 1978, he went on to earn a degree and work as
an automotive mechanic to which he put to use flipping many vehicles
that are still running today. David was employed with the United
States Postal Service until health concerns led to his early
retirement in 2020.

Growing up on the farm in Denmark, David enjoyed riding every machine
possible from mud running with his three-wheeler as a kid to enjoying
his older years settling down in his UTV. He continued his love of
farming by helping his godson, Joe, driving tractors and hauling
loads. He had a passion for fishing and spent many summers in Little
Sturgeon with his “cottage family”. There was never a time a little
one wasn’t on his lap if they were on the pontoon, taking lessons from
the true ‘Captain Dave’. Returning to shore, he always had “at least
10” in the box. A proud grandpa and great-uncle, the young-ins in his
life always put a smile on his face.

David is leaving behind his beloved wife of 33 years, Brenda, and two
sons, Brian (Tracy), and Matthew as well as his grandchildren, Joanna
and Jeremiah. He will be greatly missed by them and other family &
friends including his “little sister”, Patti (Kevin) Mercier and their
children, Dr. Phill (Dr. Chrissy) Mercier with great-niece, Eliza,
Godson Joe (Alycia) Mercier with great-nephews, Blake and Bennett,
Kayla (Adam) Mohnen with great-niece, Madison, and Brad Mercier; two
brothers, Jon (Lynda) Dworak with their children, Godson Dalten
(fiancée Paige) Dworak, Danielle Dworak (friend Charles), and Dustin
Dworak (friend Sophia); and Keith Dworak (Mary); his Godmother, Nancy
Heurkens and her daughter Cheryl Davister and his Godfather Robert
(Judy) Van Den Plas; mother-in-law, Janet Velicer (Merlin),
brother-in-law, Jason (Jill) Velicer and their children, Nicholas,
Cecelia, Aaron, Micah, Christopher, and Jordan; and sisters-in-law,
Lori (Jeff) Grabarkowitz and their children Kaylee and Andrew, and
Julie Baudhuin and her daughter Heather (Sawyer) Grinsteiner; as well
as many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He is preceded in death by both parents, one brother, Allen Dworak,
maternal and paternal grandparents, father-in-law, Myron Velicer,
family friend Herman Heurkens, and cousin/best-friend, Mike Van Den
Plas in addition to many other family members and friends.
