Obituary for David L. Wahlers

David L. Wahlers, age 85, of Tower died on Sunday February 24, 2019 at Medilodge of Rogers City. The son of Fred and Vera (Wands) Wahlers, David was born in Rogers City on December 6, 1933. He married Wilma Whitman on August 8, 1962 in Onaway. Very happy and content, David and Wilma were always together. They were married nearly 52 years at the time of Wilma’s death in 2014.

David worked as a furniture repairman and refinisher at Lamp Lighters Shelter Work Shop and was a volunteer driver for Cheboygan County. Driving to help others was something he and Wilma enjoyed doing. Nearly every day they were on the road driving people to the places they needed to go. David was a longtime member of the Community of Christ Church and later the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ. He was devoted to his Christian faith and rarely missed worship services or activities. He truly loved his church and his church family.

David may have been small in stature, but he had an enormous heart. He loved helping others and was satisfied with life’s simple pleasures. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and going for rides. Each summer David looked forward to camp at Park of the Pines where he enjoyed crafting and helping the other campers. In later years, David loved the outings he went on with his friend Gene. Many times, they went to church and quite often out for lunch at McDonald’s. Something as simple as a hamburger and fries at McDonald’s would please David and his face would light up with a big smile.

David was preceded in death by his wife, Wilma; sister, Rose Marie Koeplinger; step-sister, Dorothy Johnson; step-brother, Floyd Wahlers; and his brothers-in-law, Oscar and Hayden Whitman. David is survived by several nieces and nephews; his sister-in-law, Edna Hillis; and his church family.

Visitation will be held at the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ in Onaway on Friday March 1, 2019 from 12 noon until the time of the funeral service at 1:30 pm. Elder Faye Barrette and Elder Denise Pauly will officiate. David’s final resting place will be in Tower at Forest Lawn Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy please consider a donation in memory of David to his church, Remnant Church of Jesus Christ.
