David was born on April 24, 1952 in St. Cloud to Harold “Hobie” and Carol (Carlson) Schleicher.

Dave was known by everyone as a loving and kind hearted son, brother, husband, father, grandpa and friend to many. His healing hands have touched so many lives throughout his career as a chiropractor. He loved many outdoor activities, including birdwatching, golfing, gardening, and especially boating and fishing. Dave loved cooking for his family and friends; he was at his finest in front of the stove or grill. Music was always a love of his, which flooded into everyone’s hearts at every gathering and bonfire. Please remember Dave in all of your hearts along with that special song that reminds you of him.

Dave is survived by: his wife of 42 years, Jan of Cold Spring; daughters Amy (Eric) Eickhoff of Albany, Becca (Brian) Sauerer of St. Joseph; grandson Gavin Sauerer; parents Hobie and Carol; brothers and sisters, Juli (Norman) Katzner, Mary (Arnie) Hasch, Wayne (Laure) Schleicher, Robie (Roxy) Schleicher, Gary (Amy) Schleicher; many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents.
