David N. Rymer
Issue Date: December 30, 2021
David Nathan Rymer, 66, of Wausaukee, formerly of Coleman, passed away Sunday, Dec. 19, 2021, with friends by his side.
Born July 21, 1955, he attended Coleman High school and before graduation, he began working at the sawmill at Graetz and then worked at Coleman Products where he met his wife to be, Susanne Nowak. After a couple years, they moved to Green Bay where they lived for 10 years. While there, in October of 1980, they lost a still born son and they experienced many other miscarriages.
Upon returning to the Coleman area in August of 1987, they had a premature baby girl named Rebecca Jean. The baby stayed in the NICU at St. Vincent's Hospital until her mother's original due date of November when they could bring the baby home with special care and instructions from helpers, twins Tina and Lisa Nowak.
He enjoyed running his chain saw to make firewood, flower gardens, vegetable gardens and keeping his lawn in tip top shape. Well loved by many, he would help anyone in need.
He is survived by a daughter, Rebecca; a grandchild due in March 2022; his ex-wife, Suzanne; five brothers, Kenneth (Kris) Rymer, twins Roger and Russell Rymer, Jerry Rymer and Lyle Nathan Jr.; two nephews, Tyler and JJ; a niece, Stacie; a cherished uncle, Arnold Rymer and many aunts and uncles.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his in-laws and two brothers-in-law, Norbert and Dominic Nowak.
