David Harold was born on January 15, 1967, in Shakopee, the first of two children to parents Dallas and Marian (Berg) Plekkenpol. He graduated from Shakopee High School in 1985. Dave married Jodi Rae Breeggemann on July 17, 1999, at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, in Shakopee. They were blessed with three children, Jacob, Matt and Jessica.
By day, Dave drove school bus for Palmer Bus Company, for 13 years. Just one month ago, he took a position at Cubs Foods, in the bakery department. The rest of Dave’s time was spent farming, which ran deep in his blood. He loved working the land and tending to the animals. Dave’s love for farming crossed over to be active with the Scott-Carver Threshers, attending Farm Fest and exploring the agricultural aspects, at the county fairs.
Dave lived a simple life. He was most at peace outside. When time allowed, Dave enjoyed hunting and fishing or just simply tinkering outdoors. He was kind, caring and loving. Dave was a jokester and enjoyed making people laugh. Most importantly, his wife and children were Dave’s world and everything!
Forever loved, Dave will be missed by wife, Jodi; children Jacob, Matt, Jessica; parents, Dallas and Marian; sister, Sharon (Larry) Windschilt; nieces, Nicole, Ashley, Leigh; aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. There to greet him home in heaven are his grandparents.
