David Charles Monson was born on April 21, 1945, the son of Bert and Cynthia (Ellingson) Monson in Freeborn County, Minnesota. He was baptized at the Emmons Lutheran Church.

David was united in marriage to the love of his life, Nancy Kay Steffensen on July 29, 1972. Although David had a tough exterior at times, just like Nancy, he too had a heart of gold for others. In 1975 Nancy and David were blessed with their first daughter, Anne, 10 years later David and Nancy adopted their second little girl (Katie) from Guatemala.

David took such pride in his family. His wife Nancy and their two daughters became known as “Papa’s girls”. David couldn’t have been more proud of his 3 girls; they were his entire world.

For years, David repaired watches for a living. Later he put that job aside and worked at 3M for many years, where he eventually retired from. During the fall, weekends were spent watching football with his girls. Saturdays were Iowa State Cyclones, and Sundays were the Minnesota Vikings and pot roast. In David’s spare time he enjoyed fishing, tinkering with watches, working outdoors on the farm, and spending time with his girls.

David leaves behind his two loving daughters, Anne Kristine and Kathleen (Katie) Elizabeth both of Leland, IA; a brother, Paul (Marilyn) Monson of Newell, IA; nephews, Scott (Jill) Monson of Fort Greeley, Alaska, and Michael (Emily) Monson of Redwood Falls, MN; mother-in-law, Clarine Steffensen of Lake Mills; and all of his ATTIC CLUB family.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Nancy Monson; his parents, Bert and Cynthia Monson; a brother, Gary Monson; and his father-in-law, DeVere Steffensen.
