Obituary for David E. Stickland

David Edward Stickland, age 76, of Webster, WI, was taken by angels on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Burnett Medical Continuing Care Center in Grantsburg, WI. 

David was born on September 8, 1941, in San Diego, CA, to Clifford and Genevieve Stickland.  He attended several schools including Milbank, SD, Webster, WI, and then graduating from Hoover High in San Diego, CA, in 1960.  After graduation he stayed in San Diego, CA, but his heart was in WI.  Dave started working jobs to earn money to move back to WI, these jobs consisted of washing dishes, doing his own lawn business, and working as a cook at the Jack in the Box Restaurant. 

Dave moved back to Wisconsin in 1961, where he soon met the love of this life.  Dave met Ruth while going roller skating in Frederic, WI.  They dated for one year and were married on August 31, 1963.  Dave and Ruth lived in Mpls area, where he worked at Schaefer’s making freezers and also held a job making shingles.  They soon moved back to Ruth’s home town Frederic, WI.  While living in Frederic Dave worked at North States.  In 1967, Dave and Ruth found their dream home in Webster, WI, which was a 160-acre farm.  While Dave’s dream was to farm, he continued to work outside of the home doing various types of jobs.  These jobs include driving truck, laying carpet, making and working with cement blocks, machining, building church pews, cutting pulp and treating logs, sawing wood cutting boards, building wood cabinets and making pocket doors.  Dave ended his working career working at The Oakland Collection Center, where he enjoyed visiting with people that would come in each weekend. 

While farming Dave and Ruth started with milking cows.  Then moved the farm into having beef cattle.  Shortly after that they went into raising 1000 rabbits at once.  They moved into raising pigs and sheep.  While farming, Dave enjoyed every type of animal including goats, dogs, cats, and chickens.   

In his spare time Dave enjoyed, farming, hunting, fishing, dancing, going to auctions, watching TV, and enjoying Sunday afternoon drives.  He had a love for eating ice cream and popcorn.
