On February 16, 2024 David Michael Walzel, loving husband, father, paw, brother, uncle, and friend to many was called to his heavenly home at the age of 72, surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer.

David was the youngest of 4 children, born on December 11, 1951 in Houston, Texas, to Anton and Mary Gabriel Walzel. He met his future wife, Patricia Biondillo, in 1967 at St. Pius X High School. They were United in marriage on February 20, 1971 at Holy Name Catholic Church.

He graduated from St. Pius in 1970, and went on to work as a machinist from 1970 until he retired in 2015.

David is survived by his loving wife, Patricia (Trish), daughter, Adrienne, and grandson, Aiden, sisters Laurel Cunningham (Bob), Dolores Kerr (Leon), several brothers in law, sisters in law, numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Anton and Mary Walzel, and brother, Gabriel.

David loved being outdoors. After retirement he was either working in the yard or building something. His latest project was raising Nigerian dwarf goats. As sick as he was, he built the goats a small house and play equipment, so when they weren’t earning their keep, helping with yard work, they had fun things to do, and a place to sleep.

Funeral Service is scheduled for March 2, 2024 at 2pm, officiated by Pastor Lee Hopf. Immediately following service a Celebration of Life reception will be held at Cypress Fairbanks Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in David’s name to Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.

 David touched many lives and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He is gone but never forgotten, leaving his memories in our hearts forever.

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the Faith.

2 Timothy 4:6
