Fairmount, ND

David Langenwalter, beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend, passed away on April 24, 2024, at the family homestead near Fairmount, ND.

David was born on December 23, 1958, in Breckenridge, MN, to Elroy and Shirley (Horsley) Langenwalter. He attended St. John's Grade School, graduated from Wahpeton High School in 1977, and went on to earn a degree in Diesel Mechanics from NDSSS in 1979. David married Kathy Houle on October 4, 1980, at St. John's Catholic Church. They moved to the family homestead in 1987 where they raised their children, John, Jane, and Joseph. David retired from Titan Machinery in 2019.

David led a life defined by his dedication to the Lord, his family and his deep love for the land. He found joy in the simple moments spent with family and cherished memories of their time together. In his free time, David could often be found in his shop working on various projects or hunting and fishing at his favorite spots. David was an Honorary Member of the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus, along with memberships in the Red River Sportsmen's Club, and the Buffalo Club. He was also a Summit Township Supervisor and part owner of Texas Crossing Bar & Grill, Tyler, ND. Those who knew David will remember him for his kind heart, larger than life smile, and as a true steward of the land.
