David S. Schumacher, 58, of La Crosse passed away Sunday, May 13, 2018, at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.

He was born Dec. 15, 1959, in La Crosse to Edwin and Valeria (Volk) Schumacher. Dave served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1977 to 1979, as corporal. He was an excellent marksman while serving in the military. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, trap shooting, pool, darts and delivering Meals on Wheels until myotonic dystrophy prevented him from doing the things he enjoyed most. He retired from Trane Co. after 25 years of employment. He was a huge sports fan of the Brewers, Packers and Badgers. David was generous and kind to anyone he met.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Kristy Schumacher; two brothers, Jeff Schumacher and Jim Schumacher.
