David Wiegardt

ILWACO — David Leeland Wiegardt, 68, passed suddenly on April 10, 2022 in Ilwaco, Washington. He was born Sept. 8, 1953 in Ilwaco to Leeland and Virginia Wiegardt. David was the second oldest of four.

David was a fun-loving adventurer. He loved to cook and travel. Most days you could catch him walking or riding his bike through Long Beach and waving to cars. He would stop and talk to everyone along the way to see how their day was. Unless of course it was football season, then you could find him at LBT rooting on his beloved Ducks.

David graduated from high school in Ilwaco and went to Clark College for Culinary Arts. After graduation he moved back to work at the family business. He was a truck driver for Wiegardt Brothers Inc. until his retirement in 2001.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Leeland and Virginia; and two siblings Laurie and Bill. He is survived by his daughter Terry Jimenez, and brother Fritz.

Graveside services will be held on May 11 at 1 p.m. at the Ocean Park Cemetery.

He was the sweetest gentleman. He always had such a bright smile to offer everyone that passed his path. He never bothered anyone always always just did his own thing. Its sad he's passed my heart goes out to all who cared...
