Obituary for David D. Breitenfeld

David D. Breitenfeld, age 70, of Tomahawk, WI, passed away on Friday, April 10, 2020, at his home under the care of his family and Ascension Home Care Hospice. David was born on March 26, 1950, in Park Falls, WI, to the late August and Marie (Drott) Breitenfeld. He was married to Joanne Otto on May 11, 1990. In the year that followed, he adopted all four of her children making their family complete.

David grew up in the Butternut/Glidden area where he was a 1969 graduate of Glidden High School.  He moved to Tomahawk in June of 1995.  In his younger years, David worked in the woods with his dad and brothers, and later in life, he worked in veener mills and sawmills. He had a love to tinker with small engines. In his 60’s, he went to college in Appleton to receive his Associates Degree in Small Engine Mechanics where he was proud to have been named to the Dean’s List. David was an avid Nascar fan and enjoyed being at the Tomahawk Speedway cheering on CJ Hedges.

Survivors include his Wife, Joanne Breitenfeld, of Tomahawk;

2 Sons, Jason (Heather) Breitenfeld, and Neil (Tiffany) Breitenfeld, both of Tomahawk;

2 Daughters, Carrie (Mike Hass) Breitenfeld, of Tomahawk, and Heidi (David) Sepanski, of Glen Flora, WI;

He is further survived by his Special Nephew, Michael Breitenfeld, of Shepherdsville, KY.

David was preceded in death by his Parents, 6 Brothers, 1 Sister, 1 Brother-in-Law, and 1 Sister-in-Law.

The family wishes to thank Ascension Home Health & Hospice for their wonderful care and kind words. Also, a special thank you to Deacon Dave Bablick for his compassion and prayers, and Blanche Bonnell, for her kindness and assistance.
