David Weiland, age 71, was born in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, on January 2nd, 1951. He graduated from Aquinas High School in LaCrosse in 1969 and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1973. He then moved to the Chicago area in 1974 to start his career in engineering.
Early in his first job he met his soulmate, Carol Schrader, and they married in May 1977.
He started as an engineer and continued to advance his career with increasing responsibilities, culminating in achieving the Electrical Department Manager role. After ten years in that position, he stepped down from the manager role to do what he really loved, engineering.
He was blessed throughout his life with loving parents, siblings who both cared and inspired, a wife whose love and belief made life meaningful and joyous, and the two children who filled him with pride and humility. Given a lifetime filled with blessings, he tried to give back in a small way by mentoring young engineers, coaching various sports for kids, tutoring math for adults studying for their GED and volunteering at Habitat for Humanity to help deserving people obtain a house and home.
Beloved husband of Carol Weiland, née Schrader; loving father of Michelle Weiland and Stephen Weiland; fond brother of Marie (the late Kent) Thurston, the late Richard (Mary Jane) Weiland, the late Lori Patros, and the late Sue Welch; uncle of many nieces and nephews.
