Dave Fagerland, age 65 of Lake View, IA, passed away on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at Black Hawk Life Care Center in Lake View.
David Eugene Fagerland was born on December 12, 1955, to parents Conroy and Katherine (Townswick) Fagerland in Story City, IA. He was baptized on January 11, 1956, and confirmed on April 18, 1971, in Roland, IA, at Salem Lutheran Church. Dave grew up and attended school in Roland and graduated from Roland Story Community High School in 1974.
Dave was employed as a warehouse factory worker for most of his adult life, and most recently worked for 3M in Ames, IA, before moving to Lake View in 2014. He operated the harvester on Black Hawk Lake for a few years and absolutely loved it.
He was blessed with a daughter, Crystal, whom he was always very proud of. Later he would become ‘grandpa’ which was absolutely a title he adored.
On December 31, 2001, Dave married Vicky Jean Nordholm in Nevada, IA. They lived there for fourteen years before deciding to move to Lake View, which is where Vicky was born. Together they enjoyed golf cart rides around the lake and just sitting outside as often as they could. Growing up, Dave always had a dog…he loved his pets. They had a dog named Shadow that they both adored and are still pet owners to two cats. More than anything, the two of them enjoyed being at home together.
In his spare time, Dave liked woodworking and especially enjoyed wood burning. You could find him watching ISU---GO CYCLONES!--- and if they weren’t playing, he’d do his best to catch an Iowa game just to be able to cheer on whoever their opponent was. He also had a knack for candle making.
Dave was an amazing guy, a wonderful husband, a loving father and grandfather, and a friend to many. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Vicky Fagerland of Lake View, IA; daughter Crystal Hall (DJ Pratt) of Jacksonville, FL; grandchildren Briella Hall, Parker Pratt, and Mila Pratt; brothers Mike Fagerland of Nevada, IA, Jerry (Lin) Fagerland of Cedar Rapids, IA, and Denny Fagerland of Sarasota, FL; mother-in-law Phyllis Nordholm of Boone, IA; brothers-in-law Tim (Gail) Nordholm of Ankeny, IA, Mark (Gwen) Nordhold of Maxwell, IA, and Troy (Sheri) Nordholm of Boone, IA; many other extended family members and friends.
Dave was preceded in death by his parents Conroy and Katherine Fagerland; grandparents Jullath and C.A. Fagerland and Olaf and Nora Townswick; and father-in-law Wayne Nordholm.
