David M. Scheckel

December 5, 1973 — July 14, 2022

David M. Scheckel, age 48, of Richmond, Kansas, passed away on Thursday, July 14, 2022, at his home.

David Michael Scheckel was born on December 5, 1973, in Garnett, Kansas. He was the eleventh of eleven children born to Ambrose and Nell (Hermesmeyer) Scheckel. Dave attended Holy Angels Catholic School and graduated from Garnett High School with the Class of 1992. On September 4, 1999, he was united in marriage to Angela Zwiener, in St. Boniface Catholic Church at Scipio, Kansas. Their marriage was blessed with one daughter, Sydney.

Farmer, no one word describes Dave better than Farmer. In his 48 years, Dave managed to squeeze in a hundred years worth of work, fun, and love for his family. Dave wasn't born with a pair of pliers on his belt or a seed company hat on his head but they surely came soon after. He grew up on the family farm, contributing from his youngest days. Throughout his life he was active on the farm and also helping out friends and neighbors, up to the end. He even managed to build a fence in his final days as a hospice patient. To know Dave, meant that you knew he loved something when he got that sly grin and a twinkle in his eye when he started talking fast about whatever it was. Over the years that may have included his dogs, Specky, Jezzy, Whippys aka "Hey-man," Jimmy and Daisy, and that one horse, Pip, but none of those came close to the way he lit up when he talked about Syd. For the other truly special people in his life, they knew they were loved when they received one of Dave's playful bark/growls. He will be missed by all of his friends and family who he shared a cold beer with. His selfless acts of love for his family will be missed, they will continue on without Dave, but his words "it's a battle" will live on in them.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Ambrose and Nell; step-mother, Maxine; nephew, Mikey Scheckel.

He is survived by his wife, Angie Scheckel, and daughter, Sydney Scheckel and Alex Ramirez of the home; his beloved dogs, Daisy, Jimmy and Whippys; siblings, Bernard Scheckel of Richmond, Kansas, Lynard Scheckel of Princeton, Kansas, Gerald Scheckel and wife, Leslie of Richmond, Kansas, Greg Scheckel and wife, Carrie of Lone Elm, Kansas, Philip Scheckel of Garnett, Kansas; Rosemarie Wonnell and husband, Charles of Richmond, Kansas, MaryCarol Hermreck of Garnett, Kansas, Germaine Olsen of Richmond, Kansas; Carmel Halstead and husband, Eddie of Locust Grove, Virginia, Michele Lutz and husband, Darin of Garnett, Kansas; a whole bunch of nephews and nieces and countless other friends and relatives.
