David Henry Bemboom was born on May 17, 1945 in Mayhew Lake Township to Louis G. and Marie (Grundhoefer) Bemboom. He served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. David married Lorraine Schultz on June 10, 1967 at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in St. Cloud. He worked as a truck driver for Hardrives Inc for many years. David enjoyed traveling with family, daily trips to McDonald’s for coffee and socializing with family and friends. He loved listening to country music (making up his own lyrics), watching Walker Texas Ranger, and being an all-around practical joker. His laugh was infectious and he cared deeply for everyone involved in his life, praying for them daily and never worrying about himself. He was very honored to serve our country and wanted to make sure everyone knew it. He would wear his Vietnam hat everywhere he went in hopes of someone telling him, “Thank you for your service.”

Survivors include his son, Bradley of New York, NY; daughter, Lisa (Chris Jones) of Wheeling, IL; brothers and sisters, Louis Jr. (Mary Jane) of Lindsey, CA, Kathy Gummert of Sauk Rapids, John (Barb) of Sauk Rapids, Mary Ann of Rice, Suzanne (Rory) Thompson of Rice, Patricia (Mike) Schultz of St. Stephen, Stephen (Jean) of Foley, and Randy (Kristi) of Milaca; grandchildren, Crystal and Cody Jones, and grand dogs Dexter, Otis, and Matilda. He was preceded in death by his parents; and wife, Lorraine in 2018.
