|Let the memory of David be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, David Mundt, 78, born on August 28, 1933 and passed away on November 23, 2011. We will remember him forever.
From Marie to David
In memory of my Partner and the love of my life. We had fifty-eight and a half wonderful years together.
He was the perfect example of a devoted family man. He loved his family; a loving husband, a proud parent and he adored his three grandkids. He loved taking care of his family. He was our protector; always just a phone call away.
Our family circle has been broken. His passing has left us so sad and lonely but his presence will always remain with us through his loving and caring spirit. He will always remain in my heart.
Thank you for a lifetime of memories. One day we will be together again.
I love you Dad and you will be forever missed. Your loving wife, Marie
In Celebration of the Life of David H. Mundt
In the bulb there is a flower,
In the seed, an apple tree,
In cocoons a hidden promise:
Butterflies will soon be free
In the cold and snow of winter
There's a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season,
Something God alone can see.
There's a song in every silence,
Seeking word and melody,
There's a dawn in every darkness,
Bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future,
What it holds a mystery,
Unrevealed until its season
Something God alone can see.
In our end is our beginning,
In our time, infinity,
In our doubt there is believing,
In our life, eternity,
In our death a resurrection,
at the last a victory,
Unrevealed until its season,
Something God alone can see.
For Dad, Mom and Bubba
Thank you Terri!
It just doesn't seem like five years that you left us. As hard as it was to give you up I'm thankful you are pain free and at peace. I'm so thankful for having you into life as long as I did. You were a great man that was truly loved and missed by all of us. Love you."
"Nov. 23, 2016. Five years have passed since your battle with cancer ended. Seems so long ago, yet some things I recall as though it was yesterday. Still miss you and I'll always love you. Loving thoughts coming your way. Rest Peaceful. Love, Marie"
"Well Dad, it has been five years to the day since your time here ended. Some days it still seems like just yesterday that we lost you and some days it seems like a whole different lifetime ago. The holidays are here and in many ways I am glad that you have already passed on. We had such great times year after year! Those times were true blessings and I am thankful for all those memories! Love you, miss you. Tracey"
"Dear Marie, thinking about you, David and the kids today. It does not seem like five years in one way and forever in another. Boyd would have been 83 last November. David was such a gentle man...you all were blessed. Take care of yourself. Love you, Nora Mae."
"Just wanted to stop in and let you know we have been thinking of you.
As the family and I were down south passing through Buda, I was sharing old stories with them. When you visited in California, when I first moved to Texas, stories that was was told over the years.....
We miss you!"
"Happy Birthday Dad. Sometimes I cannot believe how long it has been since you passed away. Days to month, months to years but you are thought of daily. In some small thought or memory you are here every day. I miss you dearly. Love you, Tracey"
"David, August 28th. Another year, another birthday without you. You are still very much alive in our thoughts and memories you left behind. I believe you already received your biggest gift, no more struggle with your disease and no more pain. That belief is a comforting thought. Happy Birthday wishes on your special day. I will be thinking of you and your memories that have never faded. I miss you and love you always. Rest Peacefully David. 2016."
"Happy Birthday Uncle David. You are missed and loved. Thanks for the great memories. Party down with daddy & mom and the others there with you."
"Today is Father's Day and I find each year I miss you more and more. There are those in our lives who always help keep the ground under our feet and you were definitely one of those people. I miss your steadiness, I miss our mornings together and I will always miss you.
With Love, Happy Father's Day Dad."
"May 6th, 2016. Today is our anniversary. This would be 63 years. A long time but not long enough! This is the fifth year I have spent without you. This is a good day to reflect back and feel blessed for all those years we had together. Still miss you, love you always. Rest peacefully and loving thoughts coming your way."
"Dear Marie, Tracey and Duane, thinking about you all today, knowing how you are feeling. It's been four years since David and Boyd went to Heaven and the memories of those two are as strong as ever. David, so easy going and ALWAYS smiling. We have been blessed, Marie."
"It's been another year Dad and it's safe to say, I still think about you every day. I might not hope or even pray, I just love and miss you in my own special way. Thank you for being there all those years for me and everyone else. You are dearly missed and you will always be loved.
"Four years have passed, it seems so long ago. One thing never changes, we still remember you always with loving thoughts. We are constantly reminded how much our family depended on you and you were always there for us. You are still with us in spirit. I miss you and love you always. Rest peacefully Dad."
Just wanted you to know that you are missed and loved. Thank you for being my favorite Uncle and making each one of us feel special. Thank you for the great memories.....Love you always!"
"Happy Birthday in heaven Uncle David! Doesn't seem that long ago when you were here. What an honor to have my anniversary on your birthday. I'm hoping you are up there watching over all and yet having a great birthday. Love you and see you one day."
"So many good memories over these long years of a good, gentle man, always smiling, completely devoted to his family. I remember the young man in Germany so in love with his Marie. Thank GOD for His promise that His children will be reunited for all eternity! We are looking forward to that, Marie. Love you."
"Another birthday David. Seems so long ago since I could give you a hug and kiss and say "Happy Birthday Dad". My birthday message for you is we speak of you daily. You are still so much a part of my life. Rest peaceably David. We send our love to you on this day, your special day."
"Well Dad, today is another birthday for you. Life is so different with you not here. I always knew how much you were loved, but I didn't know the impact you had on so many lives. The small daily differences you made. Now I know. So today we celebrate your life and there is much to celebrate. Happy Birthday Dad. Love you and miss you more each day. Tracey"
"Dad, I think of you often and miss sitting at the table having our morning conversations. There was always something to talk about. I miss those times with you the most. Happy Father's Day with love, Tracey"
"May 6th. Well David, today is our anniversary. This one would be 62 years. I’m grateful for the 58 ½ years we had together, they were great years. So many changes, but one thing will never change, you will always be missed and you will be a part of my life forever. Love you always. Rest Peacefully David."
"It can't believe it has been 3 years that have passed Uncle David since you went to be with the lord. I know you are at peace and enjoying the ones with you. You will always be loved and missed. Thank you for being such a special uncle and making our visits so special and making great memories to cherish. Sending love your way. See you one day."
Three years have passed since you left us. I think of you daily and I am thankful of the years we had together. There are several changes for us this past year. Sweet little Rosco joined you on May 31st. What a happy reunion that must have been. He was such a sweet little dog. Brother Roy also joined you in August. He missed your long phone conversations. No more phone chats for the two of you! Your wedding band is now a gold heart that I wear on a chain around my neck. Just another way to keep you close. I miss you. I will love you always but I know you are okay. Rest in Peace Dad. Love you always, Marie"
"Dad, it's been three years since you passed but to me it seems so much longer. I always knew you made a difference in everyone's life around you. I just didn't realize how different life would be without you here. You kept everything in balance and I miss that so much. I miss you. You're at peace and I am grateful for that. Thank you for so many years of your love and support. There could not have been a better father than you. I love you, Tracey"
"August 28, 2014
David, today is your 81st birthday. I cannot even imagine that. I think of you daily. I think of you being young. I think of you aging but in my eyes you never grow old. I'm thankful for all those birthdays we spent together both yours and mine. I still miss you and love you. They say love never forgets so you will never be forgotten. Love you always, Marie."
"Dad, it's your birthday once again. I think about you each day. Something little will remind me of something you did or said and I can't help but smile. You were a cornerstone in this family and I miss you very much. Happy Birthday Dad. Love, Tracey"
What a honor to be sharing our wedding anniversary on your birthday. You are so loved and missed. Keep that pipe and smile going until we meet again. Happy Birthday!"
"Uncle David....As your birthday passes many of us will be thinking of you and the great memories we all had. We miss you...."
"Dad...it's another Father's Day and I hope you know how much you are loved and missed in this life. Not a day goes by that some little something makes me think of you... sometimes with a laugh and sometimes with teary eyes. Either way, I am thankful for the memories and all the time that you were here. Love you Dad."
"Dear David, May 6th, 2014

"November 23, 2013
Dear David, It's been two years since you left us, but your memory and spirit are still with us. I think of you daily and miss the times we shared just enjoying the simple things in life. It was so difficult to see you go but was getting more difficult to see you stay. I find comfort knowing you are okay. Rest in Peace David. I will love you always, Marie"
"Dad, it's been two years since you passed and I guess the world does still keep turning. A day doesn't go by that I don't think about you. There is always some little something that brings back a memory and for that I am very grateful. I love you and miss you always. Tracey"
"Doesn't seem like it has been two years of you leaving Uncle David. I know how much I miss you, so can only imagine how much you are missed by your family. I can still see your smile & your pipe, smelling that sweet tobacco smell. Thank you for the great memories and a wonderful Uncle."
Dear David, Another year has passed another birthday for you. I can't believe you would be 80 years old. I think of you so often but you never grow old, always a loving husband, father and grandfather. We still miss you and love you. Rest Peacefully Dad.
"Well Dad, it's your birthday once again. Another year has passed and it's still not quite right without you. Paige passed away this month. I guess it's getting pretty crowded and it seems to me the party is where you are at! I love you Dad and miss you. Tracey"
"Another Father's Day and life is just not the same since you've gone. I know you are in a better place, but I am left here missing you. Love you Dad."
"What I'd give if I could say
Hello, Dad, in the same old way
To hear your voice and see your smile
To sit with you and chat a while.
So if you have a father
Cherish him with care
For you'll never know the heartache
Till you see his vacant chair."
It has been a year and I know how much so many of us miss you. You will always be missed and loved and I am so thankful for so many great memories I have."
"Dear Aunt Marie and family, I will always cherish the times I spent with all of you. I have very fond memories of Uncle David and cherish them for ever. Stay strong in your faith and know we will all be togeather again. Love Craig,Janice and sons."
"Well Dad, it has been one year since you've been gone. Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving and saw the family. It was nice for everyone to be together, but you were missed. It simply wasn't the same. But then again, it never will be quite the same. We talk about you and we will always remember you with laughter, smiles and a little bit of tears. Love and miss you, Tracey"
"Dear David, Aug. 28,1933 was the day you arrived. Aug. 28, 1952 was your first birthday we celebrated together. You were 19 and I was 16. I remember it so well. I remember the first and the last, but there were many in between. This is the first I have not been able to say to you in person or by phone, Happy Birthday Dear, but I will always remember. Love you and miss you always, Marie"
"Well Dad, it is your birthday today..the first one since your passing. I wanted you to know that certainly no one has forgotten. I think of you often and actually mom and I talk about you a lot. I try to think of the good times (and there were many) and I think it's okay to mix laughter with tears. I miss and love you and always will. Tracey"
This day is so special in so many ways. We were blessed with sharing our wedding anniversary on your birthday. Usually every year I tell you in person when we get to the reunion, but this year I cannot. We love and miss you and think of you often. Please give all or family a hug for me. Love you lots and Happy Birthday."
"He had a nature you could not help loving,
And a heart that was purer than gold,
And to those who knew him and loved him
His memory will never grow cold.
Happy Father's Day Dad. I will always feel that I had the best of all dads. Love and miss you, Tracey"
"Well Dear, Just recieved news that Richard passed on 03/14/12. I know he will be pleased to see your face among the ones waiting to welcome his arrival. We love you and still miss you so much. As I walk, so many people tell me they miss the man with the pipe.
Love and miss you, Marie"
"Uncle David, been a while and I wasnt sure what to say but here recently it just seems to be getting to me.....I hope your up there with the others we have loved and lost. We miss you alot and I think of you everytime I see a tobacco pipe."
"Just needed to say that I hope you and daddy re enjoying mom being with you. This year has been a tough one, but I have to believe you are helping all of us get through the bad days. You were such a great man like my dad and I know how missed you are. You are missed and thought of often Kisses and hugs to you. Thanks for the great memories."
"Aunt Marie, Tracey, DaWayne....I just needed to say I love you all. I know how hard it is for us this time of year and yet we find laughter in so many memories of the past. I hope that you too can do that. God sure was great when he blessed us with daddy and Uncle David, I am just sad he wanted them back so soon. Love you all."
"David was one of the nicest men I ever met. I worked with him at Ex-Cell-O Corp. & he was a true gentleman. So sorry to hear of his passing & please accept my deepest sympathy Marie & family. He sure loved you all."
"God asks us to Love thy neighbor as ourselves. Dear sweet David did exactly that! Richard is forever appreciative of his friendship. He was someone you could always count on and helped where he could. We smile when we think of him! Our thoughts turn to you Marie and hope that you are comforted in knowing that although not physically present our arms and David's are wrapped aroundyou"
Daid was one of the kindest men I every worked with at ExCellO then Elopak. You and the kids were always close to his heart and shared many nice stories about the family with me throughout the years. David will be missed by all who knew him."
"David, you always seemed invinceable to me. You made your on swimming pool, your on convertible mustang. You could do anything. I always thought that you could walk on water. Now you are with the one who can. I know you and Jesus are walking together on that heavenly lake together. WE WILL MISS YOU!"
"Dear Marie, so saddened to hear about David's passing. My heart and prayers are with you, Duane, and Tracey. I always remember David's sweet smile and his gentle ways. I think about you all through the day and I know God is going to give you everything you need. I love you, Sweet Friend. Nora Mae"
"I didn't have much time to get to know you, but the few short years that I did have were enough for me to learn what a wonderful person you were. I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to meet you, talk with you, hug you, and smell that wonderful pipe. You are loved by so many people, and will truly be missed... Until we meet again..."
"David, I remember the first time I saw you, when I opened the the trailer door & saw your smiling face. Never ever saw you without that beautiful smile.It's no wonder Marie loved you so much, Marie, hold tight to God's hand,He will see you through 'til you meet again."
"Marie our thoughts and prayers are with you and family during this time of sorrow.May God bless."
"May God be with Marie and the rest of the family at this very difficult and sad time.
"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love." Washington Irving"
"Uncle David you were one of my favorite uncles growing up. I didn't get to see you often but the times I did meant a lot to me. I am so grateful I was able to see you at the reunion one last time. I know you are with Daddy, Linda, Shelley and all the others that have already passed and I look forward to the day when we can all be together again.. I love you and will miss you always..."
"David, thank you for being you. You were one of the kindest and most compassionate men I have ever known. A true professional at your career and an outstanding family man.

Your loving nephew, Mike"

"For Aunt Marie and Tracey, I am sad for both of you. It is not those that pass that we must cry for, it's those left behind. Uncle David was a wonderful man and is now at peace and pain free. I have several wonderful memories of time with Uncle David, and he is smiling in every memory I have. I am sure he is still smiling now! We will all see him again one day!"
"David, the Lord has brought you home to be with him and you will truly be missed. I treasure the times we had together when we were visiting. I will always remember your infectuous smile and the times at the reunions when you and I would end up meeting in the motel parking lots early in the morning before anyone else was up."
To you and your family, our sincere sympathy. We will always remember Davids beautiful smile. We enjoyed talking on the road all those times. We always knew when ya'll were ahead of us because we could smell the pipe. He will forever be in our memories and you and your family will be in our prayers."

dear lord now that he lives in your presence let your light shine upon him forever"

I will always charish the memories of when we last visited you and Aunt Marie (I was 9) and how you were so much fun.I loved listening to my mom tell me stories of when she was a child and enjoyed visiting you and how you were her favorite.

""The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Ps. 34:18) As a cancer survivor, I had great empathy for what David experienced. His smiling face will be missed at our class reunions. He is perfectly healed now, and for those of us who know the same Savior, we will see him again soon. Hugs to Marie."
"Thank you. You were one of the toughest, bravest men I ever had the pleasure of knowing, much less being related to. The memories of spending time with you and Anna will be something I cherish forever. I only hope to be able to continue the family name in a manner in which would make you proud. We all miss you and love you dearly."
"It was a pleasure to have known you. I have thought highly of you and Marie. My thought and prayer are with your family."
"I will always love and miss Uncle David. He was an amazing man."

We love and will miss you."
"A loved ones revealing time.
David, through the course of your many struggling and trying times there were many times I did not think Marie was going to hold it together. But what I saw and revealed to me was nothing but remarkable. She had found an inner strength and a tremendous amont of courage within her to fight with you. Her greatness never faltered."
"Dear Marie, Duane and Tracey
Danny and I have always loved, admired and enjoyed your whole family. As a couple, Marie and David became a Christian ideal to follow in loving and responsibly raising our own family. We'll always cherish the memories of family Christmases and reunions together. Love to all and God Bless."
"Dear Marie, son and Tracey,
Our hearts and prayers are with you. When I think of David, I just see a big smile! I knew him since grade school and he was always such a sweet gentleman. I hope you find comfort in knowing there is no death for those in Christ and he patiently waits for you. Love Maxine & James."
"David, You know it will be me fixing everything for Tracey and Marie; no easy job, but that's why I held the flashlight for you for all those years. I was taking notes. I will take great pride in watching over Tracey and Marie."
"Dearest Marie, son and Tracey,
Our hearts and prayers are with you. It was so thoughtful of Tracey to let our high school class of '53 know about David.
There is no death for those in Christ and praise the Lord he is now joyfully face to face with his Lord, waiting to see you one happy day. With love, James & Maxine Williams"
"David, Thank you for the gifts you left with me.
I was priviledge to be apart of your journey with you Marie and Tracey, I witnessed so many beautiful moments, Father and daughter ,husband and wife, mother and daughter affections towards each other and strength, I never been so moved and touched by so few. I am so very very proud of this family. It was the most beautiful experince."
"Personalities are formed from their parents, And I am truly fortunate to have your daughter in my life by my side. I know how proud you must feel about Tracey, her unwavering affection during all your times of need.
David, she has your greatness and unselfishness towards others. She gets this from you."
"Your greatness and your unselfishness moved my admiration for the man I knew and the man I now am today. David, I have admired you for so many different reasons secretly in my heart and will carry this with me through out my life. Truly a treasure I have."
