David Michna

April 17, 1940 — February 2, 2022


David “Dave” A. Michna, age 81, of Kronenwetter, passed away on Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at Marshfield Medical Center (formerly Saint Clair’s Hospital), surrounded by family.

He was born on April 17, 1940, to the late Alvin and Karen (Ubbesen) Michna in Racine, WI.  Dave joined the US Navy out of high school and served active duty as well as being in the Naval Reserves for 6 years.  After serving his country, he attended the University of Dubuque and graduated in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.  On April 8, 1967, Dave married the love of his life, Joyce in Dubuque, IA.  They would share almost 55 years together, and had two daughters, Laura and Susan.  After many moves in Iowa and Illinois, he moved to Kronenwetter in 1977, and became an accounting instructor at Northcentral Technical College until his retirement in 2003.  Dave loved playing baseball, playing 1st base from a young age.  He loved the New York Yankees but was too superstitious to watch all of their games.  He also loved model trains – spending hours in his basement watching them run.  He was a fan of Abraham Lincoln, reading almost ever book written about him.  He also loved the Great Lakes, lighthouses, and especially the Duluth/Superior area.

Survivors include his loving wife, Joyce of Kronenwetter; two daughters, Laura of Weston, and Susan (Sam) of Fond du Lac; three grandchildren, Halie, Will and Lucy; his sister, Karen (John) of San Marcos, TX; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, parents, his beloved uncle Paul, aunt Carola, and a grandson, Luke.

A public visitation will be held from 1:00 P.M. until 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1806 Weston Ave, Schofield.   A private family memorial service will follow. Masks and social distancing will be required.  Brainard Funeral Home – Everest Chapel, Weston, is assisting the family with arrangements.

In lieu of flowers the family will be gathering donations to create the David Michna Memorial Scholarship at Northcentral Technical College so he can continue providing for the future of accounting and the students he was so proud to teach.
