David Koronka, age 76, of Gaylord, MI, passed away on Sunday, May 22, 2022.

David was born June 3, 1945, in Grayling, MI, to Victor and Ann Koronka. He was a loving husband and father to his five children.

He was a propane technician for most of his working life. Dave was immensely proud to also serve his country in the United States Marine Corps. He was awarded two purple hearts while serving in the Vietnam War. Although Dave’s passions were hunting, fishing, and politics. If you spent time with him, you could not help but be awed by how his big blue eyes told you what he was thinking and feeling. Dave was loved by many and will be missed so much.

Dave is survived by his wife of 51 years, Karen Koronka (Campbell); his five children, Missy Koronka, Monica (Darren) Schwiesow, Victor (Angela) Koronka, Annie (Cole) Sorenson, and Jaymee (John) Berlinski; grandchildren, Samantha, Dustin, Miranda, Justin, Court, Jake, Kaitlynn, Nate, Victoria, Ian, Kylie, Colby, Geoffry, Mike, Joshua, Jake, Joey, Brody, and Hadley; nine wonderful great-grandchildren; his sister, Bernie Peterson.

Currently, the family wishes to grieve privately.

In lieu of flowers, Dave would have wanted any donations to be directed towards any agencies helping with the damage from the tornado on May 20, 2022. Dave watched in disbelief, and horror as it descended on his hometown. https://give.otsegofoundation.org/campaign/tornado-response/c409192

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Nelson Funeral Home and Cremation Service.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I loved uncle Dave very much and he will be missed. I have great memories of spending so much time with him when I was young, all of us kids feeding the cows and playing behind the house.
