GALENA–David Alexander Schleicher, Galena, and formerly Freeport, passed away peacefully on Dec. 11, 2020, after a yearlong battle with esophageal cancer. He made his transition at home with the love of his family nearby.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, a celebration of his life will be held when it is safer to gather. The family will plan for a memorial and gathering further into 2021. Cremation rites will be accorded. The Furlong Funeral Chapel, Galena, is assisting the family.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Dubuque, true angels on Earth, and/or the Galena Booster Club for the new football field bleachers.
