David R. Munchoff


PLEASANT PRACTICE – Dave Munchoff passed away on Sunday, October 10th, 2021, peacefully surrounded by his family and friends in Gundersen. Lutheran Medical Center, LaCrosse, WI.

He was born on June 28, 1942 in Lansing, IA, to the late Cleon (Roeder) and William Munchoff; he was raised by his mother and stepfather Theodore (Tade) Munz. Dave moved to Kenosha, WI and met Gwyn, his former wife. They had two daughters together. They built a house in Pleasant Prairie, where he lived until his death.

Dave attended Gateway Technical College, received his Paralegal Certificate from Carthage College, and was a real estate agent. He held many professions, but spent most of his career working for American Motors, Modern Building Materials, and the Great Lakes Naval Base. He also lived in Pleasant Prairie for over 50 years and was an active member of the Prairie Riders Snowmobile Club. Dave was a unique person with a knack for colorful language. He enjoyed fishing and hunting and spent much of his time in his hometown on the Mississippi. He was a father and a grandfather, and his granddaughters were the joy of his life. He never knew a stranger and had many friends. He found a second home in Lee County, FL, and was a member of the Pelican Bay Naples Singles Club and the Vanderbilt Presbyterian Church. There he met his special love, Rosalie Tischler, and spent three happy, fun years with her.

He is survived by his brother William (Faye) Munchoff; Daughters: Dr. Stephanie (David) Raszkiewicz and Melissa (Michael) Weipert; his partner Rosalie Tischler; his ex-wife and girlfriend Gwyn Kleinschmidt; and his granddaughters: Michaela and Alexandria. He left this earth to join his mother and father and other deceased friends and relatives and is at peace with the Lord.
