Dave was so very proud of his granddaughters, Mya and Grace. He took pride in attending every activity they were involved in. He especially enjoyed watching them play basketball. He referred to them as Goat and Baby Goat. He always looked forward to spending time with them no matter what they did. They have such great memories of Grandpa Dave! Dave’s family was the most important thing to him and taught his daughter to live this way, because of that, the Biever and Soderquist families got together at least once a month at his daughter’s place for a barbeque which ended watching his granddaughters play basketball in the shed.
Grateful for having shared his life are his wife of 54 years, Cindi, Sioux Falls; daughter, Tina (Jay) Soderquist and their children, Mya and Grace, Colton.
