David was born on April 18, 1945, in Elba, Minnesota to Louis and Gertrude (Hayertz) Majerus.

He married his best friend Victoria (Vicki) Eckes on May 8, 1971 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Hewitt. David enjoyed family gatherings especially at Christmas time and July 4th, when all the family was together. He enjoyed traveling and planning amazing trips where he and Vicki enjoyed seeing many parts of the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii. His favorite trip was in 2015 when they made the trip to Luxembourg to explore the country of his ancestry. He was very proud of his Luxembourg heritage. His many interests included watching the Brewers and Packers, biking, reading and exploring little-known places of interest. He was a faithful example in his Christian Faith to his family.
He is survived by his wife Vicki, three sons, Brian (Kim) Majerus of River Falls, WI, Scott (Julie) Majerus of Madison, WI, Mark (Krista) Majerus of River Falls, WI, eight grandchildren, Micah, Sam, Luke Majerus, Alzette and Luna Majerus, and Jonah, Lucy and Will Majerus, one brother, LuVerne of St. Charles, MN, a sister-in-law, LaVonne Majerus of St. Charles, MN, his mother-in-law Caroline Kopf of Marshfield and nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by two sisters, Darlene in infancy, Merle Haack, and a brother Wesley Majerus.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of the ICU Unit and the Palliative Care Unit at Marshfield Clinic Health Center for the loving care they gave Dave during his illness.
Dave’s message to all: “Don’t wait.”
–“Ok, So Long, Goodbye.”
