David M. Kreitzmann, age 62 of Pewaukee, WI passed away on December 9, 2019, at Heritage Court Waukesha. Dave was born on July 11, 1957, to Earl and Dorothy (Klecker) Kreitzmann in Waukesha, WI.
Dave graduated from Waukesha South High School in 1975. He then attended UW-Milwaukee where he earned his bachelor’s degree in transportation and highway engineering in 1989, all while also working as a surveyor for the City of Waukesha. Dave worked at MSA in Baraboo until 1999 and worked at the WI DOT in Madison until retiring in 2014.
An avid outdoorsman, Dave was happiest when sharing his passion for hunting, fishing, camping and all things outdoors with the people he loved the most -- his son, Tanner, and daughter, Emma. Dave was always ready for the next great outdoor adventure with his beloved dogs, Lucky and Rhapsody, family and friends -- from annual trips to the Boundary Waters to turkey hunting excursions and everything in between.
When he wasn’t outdoors, Dave loved spending time on the sidelines cheering on Tanner and Emma as they competed in various sporting events. He especially cherished the time he spent coaching his children’s sports teams while they were growing up.
David is survived by his children, Emma Kreitzmann of Littleton, CO and Tanner Kreitzmann of Seattle, WA; his siblings, Chris (Phil) Wittig of Mukwonago, WI, Steve Kreitzmann of Graham, WA, Barb (Mike) Gregware of Waukesha, WI and Jim (Leeann) Kreitzmann of WA; other relatives and friends.
Preceding him in death are his parents, Earl and Dorothy and a sister-in-law, Betsy.
