David “Big Dave” Schroeder passed away on January 24, 2023.
David was born on September 14, 1958 to Oliver and Arlene Schroeder in Detroit, Michigan. David met the love of his life, Nancy, and the two were married in 1982 in Rochester, Michigan. David loved to play games; he enjoyed video games, bowling with his wife on Saturday nights, shuffle board, pool, air hockey, darts, horseshoes, and his favorite, cornhole. He was good with his hands; David could fix anything. He was known as a gentle giant with a heart of gold, who would do anything for anyone. He enjoyed going Up North, and occasionally traveling. David loved hanging out with his family and friends, always enjoying a cold beer. David could never sit down; he was the hardest working man. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Beloved husband of Nancy; proud father of Erica (Jason); loved brother to Tim (Jennye) and Andrew; cherished Papa Bear (grandfather) to Emma, Lila, and Matthew.
David is joined in heaven by his loving parents, Oliver and Arlene.
