What lit up Dave’s world was attending his son’s football games, where they established a bond over football that carried over into their love and loyalty for the Minnesota Vikings. He cherished the days he taught his daughter to fish and find the magic in music. Dave had a few nicknames, but will certainly be remembered as, The Candy Man to his, “lovies.” He really enjoyed the gift of giving, Christmas was his favorite time of year, where he got to see little faces light up with excitement and anticipation. Feeding birds was more than a hobby, but another gift of giving back in his eyes. April lilacs gave him the go-ahead to forage for his favorite delicacy, the morel. Dave was the best kind of instigator, a little nudge of sarcasm went a long way for this man and was always shown by a twinkle in his eye and smirk in the curve of his lips, he loved to stoke his wife’s fire, but above all, he found love through his lighthouse, his soulmate and best friend.
He is survived by hie wife, Dina (Demmer) Muntz; his son, David Muntz II; his daughter, Tiana (Muntz) Schrobilgen; his son-In-law, Travis; Grandchildren, Devin, Kiara, Kaleigh, and Maverick of Dubuque, Iowa.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Debbie Duve.
