David A. Bootz

David A. Bootz, age 70, passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 22, 2023.

David was born to the late Albert and Dorothea Bootz on May 1, 1952 in Whitefish, Mont., and spent his life also living in Colorado and Wisconsin, retiring in Tomahawk.

David married the love and joy of his life Joann (Haring) on June 15, 1974. They spent 39 years together until her passing in 2014.

David is survived by his two sons, David (Carly) and Jeremy; and his three grandchildren, Jacob, Mackenzie and Andrew. He is further survived by his brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

David worked in a paper mill in Combined Locks, previously known as Appleton Papers, and retired in 2016 after working there for 27 years.

David was able to spend the final years where he grew up, doing exactly what he loved, to be in the woods, where he spent his days planting food plots, cutting and clearing trees and creating the most ideal wildlife habitat he could. He was in his happiest moments when he had a house full of family and friends who loved being up north and in the woods as much as he did.

He will be deeply missed by so many. No Service will be held at this time.

“Jesus told him, ‘Don’t be afraid; just believe.’” – Mark 5:36
