David Leroy Friedrichs was born March 6, 1949 in Melrose, Minnesota to Jerome and Vivian (Wallin) Friedrichs. He served in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged in 1969. He was united in marriage to Terryl “Terry” Didier on March 25, 1972 at St. Alexius Catholic Church in West Union. The couple farmed north of Sauk Centre for over 50 years and Davey continued helping Greg with field work. He was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre and the American Legion Post 417 of Little Sauk where he served as Commander for many years. Davey enjoyed riding around on his 4-wheeler checking on crops, playing cards, watching his children’s wrestling matches, and spending time at the family lake watching his grandchildren swim & fish. Davey was always willing to lend a helping hand to family, friends and neighbors. His family and friends will miss Davey’s quick-whitted humor.
