Cyril David Roeder was born Dec. 23, 1931, in Rochester, a son of Cyril and Frances (Carroll) Roeder. He served our country in the U.S. Army stationed in Okinawa. David was united in marriage to Barbara Murphy on Aug. 8, 1964, at Sacred Heart Church in Duluth. They have celebrated more than 54 years of marriage together.
David was a pharmaceutical salesman for Novartis, retiring in 1997. He was a member of Our Lady of the River Catholic Church, LeClaire, and former member at Our Lady of Lourdes where he was very active on the finance council and CEWs. He was also a 4th Degree member of the St. John Vianney Knights of Columbus Council #4403, where he had served as Grand Knight.
David was a perennial volunteer, whether it was ringing the bells with the Salvation Army, the Knights of Columbus Tootsie Roll Drive, the John Deere Classic, at church, or with the band parents running concession stands, Dave was always willing to lend a hand. In his free time, he enjoyed golf.
Those left to honor David’s memory include his loving wife, Barbara, Bettendorf; children, Jill (Bill) Glenn, Fredricksburg, Iowa, Sarah Roeder, Bettendorf, Dr. Carrie (Larry) Brannock, San Diego, Calif. and Dr. Anna (Damon) Johnson, Bettendorf; grandchildren, Caitlin Roeder, Maya Marshall, Kael Glenn, Kyler Glenn, Isabella Roeder and Ronan Roeder; siblings, Jack (Mary) Roeder, Rochester and Mary Kuisle, Stewartville; sisters-in-law, Charlene Morrow and Dawn Nelson, both of Superior, Wis. and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a granddaughter, Marissa Marshall; and brother, Frank Roeder.
