Birth: Apr. 5, 1893

Michigan, USA
Death: Dec. 17, 1943
Ingalls
Menominee County

From his December, 1943 obituary: "DAVID GEGERE FOUND DEAD -- Believed to have been dead for nearly two days, the body of David Gegere, 50, farmer who lived alone near Ingalls, was found yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock by his brother, Edward Gegere, who lives two miles away and who had come over yesterday to spend the night with him.

Coroner Albert Larson and deputies of Sheriff Edward J. Reindl investigated and decided no inquest would be necessary. Death was ascribed to a heart attack and natural causes.

Gegere was last seen alive by a neighbor Wednesday afternoon and his brother Edward told the officers that when he was unable to get in the house, he looked through the windows and saw his brother lying on a cot, fully dressed in his work clothes, and with his hat on his head. Forcing open an upstairs window, Edward Gegere entered the house and found the man dead. The condition of the badly frozen body indicated that he had been dead for nearly two days.

Gegere was born in Menominee county and had lived all his life in the Ingalls area. He is survived by two brothers, Edward and Louis, both of whom reside near Ingalls.

Funeral services will be held Thursday morning at 8:45 o'clock in the Diehm funeral home in Stephenson and at 9 a.m. in the Church of the Precious Blood, Stephenson with Rev. Father Albert J. Treilles officiating. Burial will be in the Stephenson cemetery."
