David George Scherer

September 21, 1951 — February 18, 2023

David George Scherer, age 71, peacefully passed away on February 18, 2023 at his home in Rochester, MN. He survived almost 30 years of compounding heart issues and his heart finally tired out. His family would joke that he had 9 lives because he could have passed on several occasions due to his "big heart". His hilarious dad jokes, love for all Minnesota sports (even with perpetual disappointment), and his endless love for his family is what kept his heart beating for the last 30 years. He made it long enough to walk his youngest daughter down the aisle and see his middle and eldest children have children of their own. These milestones were dreams of his to experience in his lifetime. David was born on September 21, 1951 and raised in Rochester, MN. He graduated as a proud Rocket from John Marshall in 1969. While excelling in beer league softball for years, he also became a renowned CRNA at The Mayo Clinic. After 30 successful years, he was able to enjoy an early retirement in 2007. Some of his favorite pastimes over the years were: attending Katy's basketball and soccer games, family vacations to national parks, reading, playing with his grandchildren, watching any and all sports with his dogs, gardening, and most of all being a loving father to his children and "Boppie" to his grandchildren. David is survived by his wife, Vandela; children Katy (Sean) Endersbe, Michelle (Ross) Capelle and Sean; sister Judy (Larry) Behnken; niece Jennifer; nephews Jonathan and Daniel; 14 great nieces and nephews; and his beloved grandchildren Harper, Lauren, Molly, and Jacob. David is preceded in death by his mother Leola and father Daniel. A memorial service will be held at Evangel United Methodist Church on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 11am. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the chuch. A celebration of his life will follow at Whistle Binkies North with a few of his favorites: tacos and margaritas.
