Krog and Beverly Joan (Johnson) Krog. David was a 1970 graduate of Chamberlain High School in Chamberlain, South Dakota, then went on to serve in the U.S. Army where he met his wife Sherry during basic training. They spent their lives together in Gillette where he was a truck pusher for Getter Trucking. After losing his wife Sherry to cancer David relocated to California. There he met and married his second wife Caryn, and worked in construction while enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather. After 12 good years of marriage David and Caryn parted ways and he moved to Seguin, Texas to be near his eldest daughter and her husband. He enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and most importantly his grandkids. He loved the Denver Broncos, San Diego Padres, and Nascar Racing.

He was preceded in death by his wife Sherry, granddaughter Madison, and dad Dale. David will be remembered as a loving father, a loyal friend, and a generous man. He was well loved and will be missed by his family, his many friends in California, and the few special ones he came to know in Texas.
