David Paul Fetsch

   David Paul Fetsch, 75, of Langdon, ND, passed away on January 1, 2020, at Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon.

   David was born on May 6, 1944, to George and Lorenda (Kroetsch) Fetsch in Wales, ND, where he was raised.  His family later moved to Langdon where he met and married the love of his life, Sylvia Chaput.  They were married on August 13, 1964, at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Langdon and made their home in the Langdon area where they raised their four children.

   David worked for the City of Langdon at the water plant for several years until he took a job at National Tea Foods grocery store as a butcher/meat manager.  He remained at that job until that store closed and then continued as meat cutter at other locations.  David and Sylvia moved to Park River for a few years because of employment and then returned to Langdon where he worked at Alco as a custodian.  He then worked at St. Alphonsus Catholic School as custodian until he claimed his early retirement due to health issues.

   David was a dedicated husband and father who demonstrated his strength, faith and beliefs through his everyday life.  He had a great love of the outdoors, camping, practical jokes, sports and, most of all, his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and pets.

   David is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sylvia, of Grand Forks; children: Lynda (Tom) Hoyt of Langdon, Cindy (Richard) Solis of Round Rock, TX, Charlene (Eric) Lundebrek of Lowry, MN, and Loren (Stephanie) Fetsch of Langdon; grandchildren: Tiffany (Byron) Shablow, Natasha (Kale) Christianson, Samantha (Kenny) Jensen, Kalton (Taylor Benneweis) Agnes, Taylor Lundebrek, Brittany (Jesse) Hayden, Ashley Fetsch, Nelsen (Katlynn) Lundebrek, Katelyn Fetsch, Zachary Hoyt, Sydney Lundebrek, Dylan Fetsch, Jesse Fetsch; 3 great-grandchildren; siblings: Mary Keeling, Marilyn Fetsch, Donny (Anna) Fetsch, Delores (Vernon) Samuelson, Carmie (Emory) Coles, and Harvey (Peri) Fetsch and many in-laws, nieces and nephews; and special family friends Dean & Connie Hakanson.

   Preceding David in death are his parents, father and mother-in-law Sylveo (Sid) & Charlotte Chaput, brother Raymond, brother-in-law George Keeling, brother-in-law Bob Heinle, sister-in-law Sonia Heinle, niece Cheryl Condon, and nephew Andrew Crockett.

   Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in Langdon, ND. Visitation will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with a 6:30 p.m. Rosary and 7:00 p.m. prayer service on Monday, January 6, 2020, at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church.  Visitation will also continue one hour prior to service time at the church on Tuesday.

My deepest sympathy to all you at this difficult time! Though I never met you Dad, your Aunt Denise would always tell me stories about him and what a special man he was. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

To Lynda, Cindy Charlene and Loren,
I have many great memories of David. I remember great times camping with him and all of you. All his practical jokes, especially, look at the stars!. His scary masks and lots more. He had a great sense of humor and he always liked to be busy working outside or on some project. He loved the Lord and was devoted to praying the rosary. We will all miss him very, very much. God Bless you all and see you soon.
