David Lee Huettl was born in Aberdeen, SD to Clarence “Bud” and Caroline Huettl on January 31, 1955. When David was young they moved to Coon Rapids, MN where he grew up. He was drafted into the Army after high school. After returning home from the military he earned an Associate Degree for computers. He loved working on computers, custom building them from scratch. Dave did that for many people at no cost, only parts, because he enjoyed it so much. Dave worked for the Star Tribune for many years and retired in 2010. After retirement, he continued to work on computers and was currently building a website. He also worked at Walmart stocking the shelves. Dave was a homebody, but loved having family and friends over for a visit.
Dave died April 18, 2020 after a hard battle with cancer for 10 months at home with family at the age of 65 years, 2 months and 18 days. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Mark and brother, Mike.
He is survived by his wife, Karen; son, Steven (Ning) Huettl; step-sons, Darin Ekanger, Sr., Mickey (Kate) Ekanger; step-daughter, Lisa (Dave) Praska; 8 siblings, Don (Carol), Ann Hammes, Dale (Kristi Carson), Cindy (Carl) Hovi, Barb (Roger) O’Conner, Lynnette (Brian) Wolff, Tom (Traci), Lauri (Frank) Ronneng; many nieces and nephews; and many other relatives and friends.
My sincerely sympathy to Karen and family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry he had to go through what he did. Dave was a wonderful father to our son and husband to Karen. I am so glad Steven and family had so much time with him and to support him. Praying for peace for his family and friends. He and Karen came to my father’s funeral and he was so kind and I appreciate them so much for coming. The Huettls will always be family to me. RIP Dave.
