David Alan Seiser, age 66, died on March 20, 2019, after a heroic seven-year battle with esophageal cancer. He was born September 24, 1952 in Elkhorn, WI to William C. and Virginia Grace Seiser (nee Noerenberg). The family lived briefly in Ithaca, NE and then moved to Milwaukee, WI.

Dave made his career in the insurance industry beginning with GAB Business Services in Milwaukee and Wausau, Sentry Insurance in Stevens Point, and then 24 years with Church Mutual Insurance in Merrill, Wisconsin, where he was a Claims Supervisor, Manager and Internal Auditor, retiring in 2014.
Dave had a passion for hunting and fishing, Wisconsin sports teams, playing bridge & golf, grilling out, and downhill skiing. He was a steady, life-long friend to many with whom he shared these interests.
