David W. Zweep

April 7, 1956 — November 7, 2020

Stoughton - David Warren Zweep, age 64, peacefully passed away in his home surrounded by his loving family on November 7, 2020, after his brief battle with cancer. Dave was born on April 7, 1956, the son of Mary Copley and Warren Zweep.

Dave attended Stoughton High School and graduated Class of 1975. He met his forever love, Laura, and they were married on December 6, 2003 at their home in Stoughton, WI. Dave worked as an electric lineman with Stoughton Utilities, retiring in May 2015 after 39 years of service. After his retirement, he was able to spend more time doing what he loved: remodeling projects around the house, working on motorcycles, including upholstery, powder coating & ironwork, going on camping trips, and riding his motorcycle. He was an avid hunter and loved hunting trips with his sons. Dave was a great listener and always put others before himself. In his final days, he loved looking back at photos and memories with family and friends.

Dave is survived by his wife, Laura; sons Phil (Dawn Vanderhoof) and Joe (Jen Woods); step-children Ryan, Katie, and Michael McGee; cherished grandson Rowan; and brothers Mike (Lucy) and Don (Kathy). He is preceded in death by his father, Warren; mother Mary (Copley); and brother Steve.

Dave is grateful for the love and support received from his family, friends, neighbors, Agrace Hospicecare, and many AA friends who reached out with their condolences after his diagnosis, as well Dr. Kate Schuller and her team at UW Carbone Cancer Center.

An open house memorial will be held on Saturday, November 14 from 2 - 4PM at his home to celebrate his life.
