David Fogelquist passed away unexpectedly yet peacefully last Thursday,?Sept. 20 at his home in Prineville. David was born in Bend to Mark and Hazel Fogelquist. Afflicted with polio as a young child, David received outstanding care at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Portland, enabling him to live a full and productive life. He grew up in Gilchrist and graduated from Gilchrist High School in 1955. David and Judy Hamman were married on Jan. 5, 1961 and made their home and raised their family in Central Oregon.
David enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Summers were spent camping with his girls and their families.
After a career spent in the forest products and RV industries, David and Judy became fixtures at craft shows all over the Northwest.
David is survived by his wife, Judy, his wonderful wife of 51 years; daughters, Vicki (Jon) Folkestad, Portland, Ore.; Kathy (David) Watson of Prineville; Teresa Fogelquist of Bend; Diane (Gary) Sperling, of Camas Wash.; four grandsons, Justin, Billy, Craig, and Gunnar; and lifelong friend, Jim Warren of LaPine.
A celebration of David's life will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28 at Niswonger-Reynolds Chapel, 105 N.W. Irving Avenue, Bend. David was unfailingly friendly and his charm and humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
The family suggests a donation in David's memory to either Shiner's Hospital for Children or the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
