David Paul Bierschbach was born Aug. 13, 1972. He resided in Long Prairie with his family until moving to Melrose in 1976 when he was just 4 years old. He graduated from Melrose High School in 1990 and continued his education at St. Cloud State College. Thereafter, he worked in the flooring industry, laying many carpets and floors. For the past many years, he has mainly been working in the Alexandria area through Carpet One and Hilltop Lumber. Recently he began employment at Ag Tech Drainage in Sauk Centre. He knew this fresh start was a good challenge and one he would really enjoy as he would get to work with a strong passion of his, namely computers.
Dave was an outgoing person who loved going on adventures, traveling and meeting new people. His hobbies included playing games on the computer and being a wiz at any technology issues. Summer fishing was on his mind a lot and going to Mom’s to clean fish in the evening and keep her company. Dave truly loved spending time with his family and friends.
Survivors include his special friend, Jessica Chavez; his siblings, Jerry Bierschbach (Joyce) of Melrose, Allen Bierschbach (Linda) of Melrose, Mary Hollenkamp (David) of Burtrum, Jim Bierschbach of Albany, and Linda Morton (Mark) of Melrose; his nephews and nieces, Michael Bierschbach, John Bierschbach, Jodi Marquez Bierschbach, Judy Bierschbach, Jason Bierschbach, Brian Hollenkamp, Vicki Hemmesch, Adam Bierschbach, Ashley Hondl and Lydia Butkowski; and many loving relatives and friends. David also adored his fur baby companion, Buddy.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Lorraine Bierschbach (Mom passed away March 9, 2022); sister Joan Bierschbach; and brother Robert Bierschbach.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.
