The family then moved to Big Cormorant Lake until 2011 and were involved in Cormorant Lutheran Church and Cormorant Lions. They later moved to Lake Ethel near Ottertail Lake. Dave loved tinkering, fixing almost anything, catching up on American history, and spending time with his family and friends at the lakes.

Survivors include his wife, Lorraine; children, Scott (Sandi) Reed, Fargo, Mark (Vicky) Reed, Eagan, MN, Blake (Michelle) Reed, Jamestown, ND, and Cindy (Steve) Wentzel, Dallas, TX; 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
