Obituary for David D. Hexum
David Dean Hexum, 60, of St. Croix Falls, WI passed away on Monday, May 9, 2016.

David "Dave" was born in Minneapolis, MN on December 25, 1955. Following graduation from high school, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and was stationed at Camp Pendleton, San Diego, California. Upon discharge from the service in 1976, Dave attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls for a brief period of time. In River Falls he met and married Sue Sperling. The couple later resided in Roseville, MN for several years. Dave attended Hennepin County Community College where he earned an Associate Degree in Human Services. Upon graduation, Dave worked in a half-way house for troubled teens. He later earned his Barber's license at the Minneapolis School of Barbers. He was employed as a Barber in Minneapolis for several years taking great pride in his work.

Dave rounded out his working life doing factory work in Center City, MN. As the result of a year's long struggle with diabetes, Dave became physically disabled. In spite of the disease, he enjoyed the last 10 years of his life very much. Over this time, he found joy in many friendships.

Early in life Dave occupied himself with family, hunting, and fishing experiences. He loved sports of all kinds excelling as a baseball player. Dave maintained an avid enthusiasm for sports throughout life, most recently following the Minnesota Wild Hockey team along with his brother, Jim. Dave spent a fair share of his time at his brother's sharing his wisdom and wry wit with his beloved sister-in-law, Teri whom he felt very comfortable confiding in.

Dave was incredibly fond of his many pets over the years. Most recently he took the leap and having only had dogs in the past, got himself a cat, "Russell".

Dave will be dearly missed. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles and Nina Hexum, and Daryl and Elsie Fleming; parents, Dean and Eva Hexum; and special friends, Spence and Leona Anderson.

Dean leaves to celebrate his memory: brother, Jim (Teri) Hexum; one niece, Cassidy (Rich) Vadner and their blessed children, Brandon, Vayda, Farah, and Zenia; and five cousins, along with special friend, Michelle.

The Memorial Service honoring the life of David Hexum will be held at Fristad Lutheran Church, 501 State Road 35, Centuria, WI on Thursday, May 26, 2016 – visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. followed by the service at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Mel Rau officiating. A fellowship luncheon will follow the service at the church. There will be a private interment at the Sand Lake Cemetery at a later date.

You are invited to sign an online guestbook and leave a memory.

Arrangements are entrusted to Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, , 715-472-2444 and the Northwest Wisconsin Cremation Center in Milltown, , 715-825-5550.
