David Bommersbach

David G. Bommersbach , 83, of Northwood, ND passed away Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at the Northwood Deaconess Health Center. A memorial service will be held Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 2 p.m. at the Ebenezer Lutheran Church Northwood. Burial will be held in the Northwood Cemetery.
David G. Bommersbach was born on October 10, 1928, in Hankinson, ND, the son of Anton and Katherine (Roth) Bommersbach. In 1945, he moved with his parents to Larimore, ND, where he graduated from high school. In 1950, he married Geraldine Sherva and they had two children Michael and Scott. In 1976, Michael was killed in an auto accident. David was employed at Olso Supply until 1952, when he joined the US Army and served in the Korean Conflict. After the war, David was employed at the Northwood Grain and Hatchery, later was employed by Baseview Petroleum until he retired in 1990.
David was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, soldier and a person who was truly a gift to so many. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's which overtime gradually limited what he could do, but he never lost his sense of humor, how he related and treated people, and his sense of giving to others. David was very proud of his military service and his family. David most enjoyed the time spent with his family and especially his grandchildren in building memories that will last a lifetime. Whether it was building tree forts in the park, driving the golf cart, fishing, bowling, going to the arcade, watching sports or having caramel rolls at grandma and grandpa's. The best times for David were those spent with his grandchildren.
Survivors include his wife of 62 years, Geraldine; son, Scott (Holly) Bommersbach; grandchildren, Tanner, Shelby, and Bryce Bommersbach; brothers, Jerry (Donna) and Ron (Carol) Bommersbach; sisters, Irene, Cathy, and Delores.
Preceding him in death were his son, Mike; parents; sisters, Lil, Chris, Marion, and Cecilia; brothers, Edward, Anton, and Donald.

Dear Bommersbach Family, We were very sad to hear from Barry (our father/grandfather) of David's passing. Barry has shared with us the great times you had together in Northwood last summer. Dan also remembers time with all of you when Michael and Scott were in our growing up years. Please know that you are in our thoughts and our prayers.

I am very sorry to learn of your loss of David. We all need words of comfort when we mourn the loss of a loved one. The pain will gradually be replaced with fond memories. We gain true comfort and hope from God's word. It is there to help us. John 5:28,29 assures us that there will be a resurrection. At Revelation 21:4,5 Almighty God Jehovah promises to end death, tears, pain and mourning. May you find comfort as you put faith in the promises of our loving Creator.
