David Perrenoud

David Lynn Perrenoud (Pa Dave) of Fredericksburg, Texas passed away peacefully on August 24, 2021. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on March 14,1957 to Theo L Perrenoud and Alice Elaine Shohan Perrenoud. He was a master of many things and was a very unique man who had a gypsy heart and had so many wonderful friends and family.  He did everything he ever put his mind to.  He was a master carpenter, woodworker, fisherman, scuba diver, traveler, explosive expert, but the one thing he was the most was a superman!  He taught by example to his children, grandchildren and many more.  

He taught us that:

-Life isn’t easy
-A handshake is your word
-Seemingly impossible things can be accomplished
-Sometimes you have to think outside the box
-Lefty loosie, righty tighty
-Under promise and over deliver
-Be a listening ear
-When you are at peace there is nothing to fear
-Things are mind over matter
-Love is earned
-Laugh at a gag gift that was given to you at Christmas
-When we face trials, we have 2 choices
-When you can do everything in your power do it to prove you can do it
-Your children are the most important, No matter what else is going on

He taught us many, many more things because he IS a SUPER MAN!!!  He will be greatly missed by all.
