David Murch 69, formerly of Eagle Bend, died Friday, June 18, 2021, at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. A private service for David will be held at a later date.
David was born August 23, 1951, in Bertha to Virgil and Delores (Conley) Murch. He attended Eagle Bend Public School, graduating in 1969. Dave began truck driving at the age of 18 hauling grain for his dad. He married Sandy Holt in Belle River on November 20, 1971 and they lived in Eagle Bend for 30 years. In 2001, they moved to El Mirage, Arizona.
Over his 45 years of trucking he hauled grain, livestock, and flatbed logging over 6 million accident free miles, doing what he loved. He had a great sense of humor, an outstanding way of remembering every place he had been to, and made many good friends along the way.
For the last 6 years they enjoyed traveling out west through the winter months and enjoyed summers in Minnesota with their children and grandchildren. Dave enjoyed an occasional casino trip and socializing with family and friends and old trucking buddies.
He is survived by his wife Sandy of 49 years, daughter, Jennifer Murch, son Brandon (Carrie) Murch, grandchildren, Madison, Kennady and Emersyn Hudalla and Macy and Marshall Murch, and his sister Sandy (Jerry) Pontius.
David is preceded in death by his parents, Virgil and Delores and siblings Eugene Murch and Donna Shinabarger.
