May 20, 1941 — February 25, 2020

David  T. Fleck, age 78, of Swanton, Ohio, passed away in his home surrounded by his loving family, Tuesday morning, February 25, 2020, following a valiant battle with cancer.  He was born May 20, 1941 in Toledo, Ohio to Elmer and Fannie (Pedersen) Fleck.  Dave was a graduate of Macomber Vocational Technical High School, and married his true love, Elizabeth "Liz" M. Mockensturm on February 17, 1962. She preceded him in death on July 8, 2019. 
After graduation, Dave started his working career in autobody with Lakeport VW.  His goal in life was to be an entrepreneur.  In 1974, the family moved to Swanton.  In 1975, he opened Fleck's Collision.  He was a well known and respected autobody technician throughout Northwest Ohio.  He took pride in his business, that supported his family for many years until he retired.  An avid outdoorsman, Dave enjoyed hunting, fishing and loved spending time at the cottage on Lake James boating.
Dave was so proud of his children and grandchildren.  He will be greatly missed by his children, Denise (Gary) Riggleman, Terry (Luann) Fleck and Amy Fleck (Michael Cousino);  grandchildren, Nicole (Nate) Hohenstein, Ashley Fletcher and Christian Fleck; great-grandchildren, Mariah, Henley, Ashton and Sasha; his twin sisters, Marianne (Jeff) Gehring and Gretta Laskey; sister-in-law, Ann Fleck; many nieces and nephews, and of course his German Shepherd, Sarge.
Besides his beloved wife of 57 years, Liz, Dave was preceded by his parents and brother, Lawrence Fleck.
