David Erdman

September 21, 1940 — January 20, 2021


David J. Erdman of Wausau, a man who genuinely appreciated the nature God created, entered into eternal life on January 20, 2021 ending his earthly battle against Parkinson’s disease and Cancer with his wife, Sharon, at his side.

He was born to Carl and Margaret Erdman on September 21, 1940.  He married Gloria M. Digman on September 21,1963.  They lived life by example as they raised their two children, David and Amy.  Their journey came to an end when Gloria passed away in January of 1990.  When God closes a door, He opens a window and He brought Sharon (nee Kautzer) Worden into his life, they were married on March 16, 1996.

David is survived by his wife, Sharon; son, David J.C. (Vicki) Erdman and their children, Makenna (fiancé, Josh) and Dalton all of Sherwood, WI; daughter, Amy (Mark) Rukamp and their children, Eric (Special friend, Lindsey), Rachel (Tom) Thibodeau and their son, Lincoln, and Erin (Jesus) Flores and their daughter, Iris all of Green Bay, WI; step-sons, Tim (Diane) Worden and Scott (Karen) Worden and their son, Lucas all of Wausau, WI.

Our family has lost a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather who will be extremely missed but never forgotten – thank you for all the memories.

Sincere appreciation goes to the caring and supportive staff of Aspirus Hospice House and to Pastor Zach Holdorf for his friendship and spiritual guidance along dad’s journey to eternal life.

Per Dad’s request, a private family service will be held.  Helke Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements; you may sign our family guestbook at
