David Luther Woldt, born October 9th, 1941, died August 21, 2021 due to complications from Lewy Body Dementia. Dave was the son of Enno and Clara Woldt of Lansing Michigan. As the son of a pastor, his faith was always a guiding force in his life even though he could test the patience of Job with his antics when accompanied by his brothers. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 1965. During that time he met the girl who stole his heart, Bethany Huffman, and they were married a few short years later. After graduation he began his lifelong career with General Mills. During these years, Dave and Beth were blessed with two daughters, who were the other two loves of his life. He was always most happy when surrounded by his girls.
Dave never sat still! He loved anything having to do with the outdoors. Whether he was skiing, playing tennis, sailing, washing his car, mowing the lawn, hunting, fishing or chopping wood, his love of life was evident and infectious. David’s gregarious personality lent itself well to community service. During their retirement, Dave and Beth enjoyed volunteering in various community and faith-based activities. Dave and Beth considered themselves blessed to have enduring friendships that they cherished. If you were their friend, you were their family. Anyone who knew Dave, was well acquainted with all of his “pearls of wisdom.” Even in his final days, his humor was strong and comforting. Dave is survived by his wife Bethany; daughter Amy May of Whitefish, Montana, son-in-law Eric, & grandsons Jake and Luke; daughter Heather Koelling of Saint Michael, Minnesota, son-in-law Gary, & grandsons Henry and William; several brothers and sisters-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews.
