The son of Kale Danberg and Nancy (Broan) Danberg, David was born physically Feb. 11, 1957; and born spiritually July 9, 2019.
As an avid Vikings fan, he hated to mention that he was born in Beloit, WI. Soon afterwards, his family moved to Cokato, where he lived out the rest his life.
A 1975 graduate of Dassel-Cokato High School, he attended University of Minnesota, Crookston, obtaining an associate’s degree.
David married Donette Lange Aug. 18, 1984, as a result of a successful blind date set up by his future mother-in-law and her friend, Mae Delp. He and his bride renewed their vows with family and friends this past summer, on their 35th wedding anniversary.
Illness plagued Dave for the past 10 years, with Hereditary Hemmoragiac Telangectasia leading to heart, kidney, and liver failure. HHT caused chronic nose and mouth bleeds, which sent him to the hospital over 100 times for blood transfusions and many other hospital stays. He and his loved ones are very grateful to all those who give life through their blood to the Red Cross, as you helped to sustain his physical life.
Dave was eternally grateful for the blood of Jesus Christ, which gave spiritual life so that he could live forever in God’s spiritual kingdom.
Dave worked 40 years at the same company, while they changed names and places. He began with FabriTech in Cokato, then CTS Connectors and AbelConn Electronics, which moved the plant to New Hope in 2002; ending at Atrenne March 15, 2019. He worked in quality control and as a machinist.
Dave provided faithfully and amazingly for his family through all of his medical trials.
