About all that we know is that he was found in his semi in Ohio. 2craziesMSN found his obituary which I am posting here.

this is bugsmasher69 obituary

He worked for Millis Transfer for the past 30 years. David loved the holidays, especially Christmas, and enjoyed the sport of Geocaching and all the new electronic devices.
Survivors include three daughters, Kristirose Pickard, Ashley Pickard, Emiley Braun; and one son Joshua Braun; four grandchildren, Raef, Gideon, Mathew, and Sophia; his dad Einer; a sister Linda; and a brother Chris. He was preceded in death by his mother Audrey.

Wow, another passing. David wasn't somebody we had ever chanced to meet, but we spent a lot of time in the Portage area doing his caches. He had quite a few in the little rural cemeteries we love to visit and I really liked his Evil Monkey Visits the Power Plant by the Columbia Coal cooling ponds. He wasn't a close friend, but he was part of my community, and I'm sorry to hear that it's now smaller by one. Our thoughts go out to his family.

This is very sad news indeed. We knew Dave personally and he will be greatly missed.
