David Robert Gerrits

June 5, 1977 — December 28, 2022


David Robert Gerrits, 45, of Weyauwega, WI, passed away unexpectedly on December 28, 2022. 

David was born on June 5, 1977, in Appleton, WI, to David Gerrits and Jeanne (Frank) Rhodes.  

On June 21, 2003, David married the love of his life, Gina Brux. Together they have raised 2 beautiful children, Zayda and Ethan. 

David loved his family and together they enjoyed hunting, fishing, especially Sturgeon Spearing and the Spring Walleye Run, camping and were members of the Waupaca Chain Skiers for 5 years.

Together, Gina and David really enjoyed sneaking away to the casino and “cocktailing”. David took great pride in the family hobby farm where many cherished memories have been made. The best times are the times spent together. David was also an avid Green Bay Packers fan. He spent his career of 25 years working for Amcor.  

David is survived by his parents, his children, siblings; Amy (Jed) Sprangers, Tim (Heather) Gerrits and Travis (Gacia) Rhodes, mother-in-law Kay Remme, brother-in-law Brian Brux, sister-in-law Shari Brux, and many other family and friends. 

The family would like to extend a special thank you for all of the love and support they have received from friends, family, and the community thus far.
