David Allen Siedschlag, 65, of Bismarck ND, passed away Tuesday evening, June 25, 2024 at his home. 

A celebration of life service will be held at 11:00AM, Wednesday July 10 at Parkway Funeral Service, 2330 Tyler Parkway, Bismarck. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Interment at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery, Mandan.

Dave was born to Douglas Siedschlag and Marlene Aus on January 31st in 1959 in Valley City, ND. Dave moved around a lot as a child and always found friends wherever he lived. Many of those friends that Dave made through his school years, remained lifelong friends, enjoying fishing, hunting and reminiscing together. During his school years, Dave was active in Cub and Boys’ Scouts, basketball and football. He graduated High School from Hazen ND, joining the National Guard, of which he was proud to serve his country. In letters he wrote home to his father while in training, he informed his dad that he was “staying out of trouble and keeping his mouth shut.” (if you could believe it!) After his time in the Guard, Dave attended college at UND in Grand Forks, ND. 

Dave worked various jobs throughout his long career. Dave worked for; Trans Equipment, Sids Diversified Services, Gases Plus, AirGas, Industrial Supplies, Kaman, and DSS. Dave’s career allowed him to make connections with many people. He was such a wonderful talker and listener that he could make everyone he spoke to feel important and heard. 

Dave was passionate about many things in life, but nothing was as important as family. An eight hour drive was nothing if it meant he could be there for his family. Dave loved to spend time with his partner Carla, his two daughters, Casidy and Maizie, and four grandsons, Bennett, Liam, Colson and Bodhi. He never missed an opportunity to show a picture or share a story about his grandsons. "Papa Dave" was his favorite title. He always made sure to tell his daughters, grandsons, nieces and nephews how proud he was of them and how much they were loved. 

Dave was also passionate about music, movies, fishing, hunting, sports, and of course cheering for his Minnesota Vikings. SKOL Vikings!! Dave loved best when he could combine his passions with his family and friends to have a good time. 

With Carla, Dave found a true match; someone always quick to share a smile, laugh, and story. Dave loved to work in the yard and enjoyed spending time at home with Carla. The pair could be seen going down the highway in their dark blue corvette to breweries or concerts with smiles on their faces. Dave was so proud to have gotten his passport and looked forward to traveling to Mexico and beyond with his soul mate. 

Dave was a great man who gave as much grief as he got while always maintaining a positive attitude. Dave's laugh and infectious smile will be missed by all who knew him. 

David is preceded in death by Douglas Siedschlag (father), Marlene (Aus) Siedschlag (mother), and Scott Siedschlag (brother). 

David is survived by Mark Siedschlag (brother), Lois (Siedschlag) Albers (sister), Casidy (Siedschlag) Potts (daughter), Maizie Bachmann-Siedschlag (daughter), eight nieces and nephews, and four grandchildren. 

In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to the Bismarck Honor Guard or the Children's Miracle Network in memory of Dave.
