David A. Reichardt, age 71, of Plymouth, Wis., passed away peacefully early Monday morning, Dec. 16, 2013, at Rocky Knoll Health Care Facility where he had been a resident for the past year.

Dave was born Dec. 27, 1941 in Brillion, Wis., a son of the late Clarence and Nora (Krueger) Reichardt. He graduated from Brillion High School in 1959.

Dave served in the United States Navy during the Cuban Crisis from 1959-63.

On Nov. 14, 1964, he married Shirley Thomas at the United Methodist Church in Forest Junction, Wis. The couple resided in Chilton for a short time and have resided in the Plymouth area since 1967.

Dave was employed as a master plumber for the local union #206. He worked at Plymouth Plumbing and Heating and Haucke Plumbing, both in Plymouth. He also served as the plumbing inspector for the last 20-plus years for the towns of Lyndon, Lima, Plymouth, Russell, Schleswig, Meeme, Sheboygan Falls and for the sanitary districts for St. Cloud and Cascade.

He was a member of First Congregational United Church of Christ in Plymouth, the Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post #243 in Plymouth and the West Maple Grove Hunting Club.

Dave enjoyed trout fishing, camping, deer hunting and always was the biggest supporter of his children’s and grandchildren’s sports and school programs. His pride and joy was his restored 1968 Convertible Mustang.
