DAVID BYER, age 64 of Waseca died on Monday, November 13, 2017 at his home in Waseca.

Born on March 26, 1953 in New Ulm, Minnesota, he was the son of LeRoy and Dorothy (Brandel) Byer.  David married Beverly Wilmes on April 24, 1976.  He made sure the wedding was after Easter but before the racing season.  David’s passions include motorcycling, snowmobiling, motorcycle hill climbing, water skiing, sailing, traveling and finding the best curvy roads in the country.   David also loved finding and eating the local cuisine when traveling.   He held dear all those he came in contact with in his adventures.   His only regret was not being able to watch his granddaughter Maggie grow up as he was so proud of her.
