Obituary

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of David James Skoog on May 11th, 2020 at the age of 75. He was a wonderful father and dear friend to many. David was born in Minneapolis, MN on June 17th, 1944. David grew up in MN for most of his childhood, helping his Dad run their family business and grocery store "Skoogs Foods". He received his Psychology degree from Mankato State in 1967. He went on to serve as a Marine Lieutenant and Captain with the Aerial Observation Unit with the 11th Marine Regiment in Danang, Vietnam from 1967-1969. During his service, David was struck by enemy fire, causing his helicopter to crash and was awarded the Purple Heart from this mission. In addition to the Purple Heart, David received many other honorable medals, including; the Air Medal, Navy Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, and the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry. After his time in the service he studied at Brigham Young University where he graduated with his Masters in Psychology. He moved back to MN, where he met Yasemin and tied the knot on February 6th, 1992. They raised 2 children; their beautiful daughter, Arika (26) and David's step-son, Dylan (31). David went on to work for many years as a CFP and was very involved in his children's lives. David coached his daughter's soccer team when she was young and enjoyed supporting her and cheering her on in her current boxing career. During and after his daughter graduated high school, David loved to take part in Eden Prairie High School's BPA (Business Professionals of America) competitions as a judge. He was very involved with and a proud member of Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie. David's strong passion for Christ and mentorship guided him to lead a bible study for several years as well as establish the Somali Friendship Group. David also loved to fish, hunt and explore the outdoors. He is preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Muriel Skoog. Survived by his daughter, Arika; best friend and ex-wife, Yasemin Arik; step-son, Dylan; sister Charmelle (James) Johnson; cousins, Jerry Skoog, Elaine Vitt and Linda Kubicek. David's memorial service will be held at Huber Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 8th from 4-7pm. His burial service will be held at Fort Snelling, July 9th at 11:30am. In lieu of flowers memorials are preferred to the family. As David would say, and the Marine motto goes - Semper Fi (Semper Fidelis... always faithful).

Seems that my "memory" shared was censored and erased from this wall. It still stands and is true.
