David J. Wobma

Martin - David James Wobma, age 70, went to be with his Heavenly Father Saturday, January 8, 2022. David was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Deb, as well as his parents Ruth and Donald Wobma. Dave attended Wayland High School, graduating in 1969. In August of 1972, David married Deb and they resided in Wayland, before moving to their forever home in Martin. They raised two daughters Jennifer and Melissa together, while he worked at Parker Hannifin in Otsego for more than 40 years. David enjoyed being a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He also was a friend to all, telling stories and joking with anyone who would listen. He enjoyed farming, gardening, nature, long drives without a destination, attending his daughters' and grandchildren’s events, and never gave up a chance to get lost in the woods. Dave possessed a big heart and a kind soul. He will be truly missed by all who knew him, including a golden retriever, Athena. David is survived by his daughters Jennifer (Andy) Billington, Melissa (Kevin) Falicki; and grandchildren Kyle, Chloe, Julia, and Heidi. His siblings include Becky (Donald) Good, Nancy (Bill) Dreyer, Robin (Mike) Elliston, Amy Grover, and Peter Wobma.
