David D. Wicklund, a long time resident of Oak Harbor, Washington was born on May 5, 1951 in Duluth, Minnesota. He passed away in Seattle on June 26, 2018 from complications arising from open heart surgery.

He is survived by his wife, Lori, and his children, Shaman (Shirleen), Tauri (Richard) and Teaka Roll (Daniel) , two grandchildren and four brothers, Steven, John, Robert and Michael.

David had lived in Oak Harbor for many years after retiring from the United States Navy. He had achieved the rank of petty officer first class and served with honor and distinction in both the Vietnam and Iraq Wars. During his life he had learned many trades, among them being electrician, jet engine mechanic and combat helicopter crewman. He also volunteered in his community with the Oak Harbor water distribution system. Oak Harbor residents might remember him for his time working at the feed store downtown.

David will be remembered for a great many things but most importantly for his kindnesses to all he knew, his wonderful and soft sense of humor, his devotion to his family and friends and his unending optimism and faith. His laugh was unforgettable.
