Michalak, David Dennis (18 April 1956 - 6 March 2010) 

David Michalak, 53, of Neillsville died Saturday, March 6, 2010, in the Emergency Room of the Memorial Medical Center in Neillsville. 

David Dennis Michalak was born April 18, 1956, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield, the son of Walter and Margaret (Ewing) Michalak.  He attended Neillsville High School, played football and graduated with honors in 1974.  He then went on to the Eau Clarie Technical College and graduated with honors in the tool and die program.  Dave then moved to Milwaukee and worked for many years at the American Tool and Die Company.  He returned to Neillsville 10 years ago and worked at the Nelson Muffler Factory until it closed. Currently Dave was working at D & S. Manufacturing in Black River Falls. 

Dave was a gentle giant who would do anything for anyone.  He was always very generous and giving with all of his family and friends.  He will be dearly missed by all who know him. 

He is survived by his parents, Walter and Margaret Michalak of Neillsville; six sisters, Margie (Kop) Beck of Cecil, Linda Michalak of Pray, Debbie (Jim) Reichenbach of Lake Mills, Tammy (Tim) Kren of Owen, Brenda (Gary) Meihak of Neillsville and Mary (Bill) Riddle of Neillsville.  Dave is also survived by many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by a nephew, Daniel Riddle; a great-nephew, Dylan Bloch; and a grandmother, Mabel Kozlowski. 

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
