Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, Papa, brother, uncle, friend and neighbor, David Neal Eversvik was born May 24, 1948, in New Rockford, ND and passed away on July 28th, 2022, after a courageous five-year battle with cancer at his home rural Warwick ND.
David was drafted into the United States Army on October 15, 1971, and was honorably discharged on February 6, 1976.
On July 20, 1973, David was united in marriage at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Devils Lake to Mary Schottenbauer of Clyde, ND. They moved to Warwick ND to start farming in 1977, where they lived, farmed, and raised shorthorn cattle while working a full-time job in Devils Lake. David just recently became a member of the Knights of Columbus.
In the last 16 days of his life, David was able to visit with family and friends. He drove around with his side by side to check on cattle and the progress of the haying operation by his sons.
We are so grateful for all the visits, food, phone calls and support.
David’s survivors include his loving family. His wife of 49 years, Mary; sons Matt Eversvik and Mike Eversvik both of Warwick; grandchildren Shyia (Jessica) Colburn, Cheyenne Eversvik, Katie Eversvik, Gary Eversvik; great grandchildren Kyah, Milliana, Maria, Tristan and one on the way; brothers Robert (Kathy) Eversvik, Jamestown ND, Ronald (Peggy) Eversvik, Lakota ND, Daniel (Betty) Eversvik, Starkweather ND, James (Sharon) Eversvik, McHenry ND and Lenny (Darlene) Eversvik, Devils Lake; sisters Deloris Vavrosky (Donnie Thorp), Viola IL, Agatha (Steve) Bernhardt, Wilton ND and Pam (Steve) Heim, Anamoose, ND; several nieces, nephews and their families.
