Obituary for David Schreurs

David John Schreurs passed away March 3, 2018, following a brief illness. He was 70 years old.

David, who was known as Dave to his family and numerous friends, was born January 6, 1948, in Des Moines, Iowa. He graduated from Des Moines Roosevelt High School in 1966 and earned an Actuarial Science Degree from Drake University in 1970. He served in the U.S. Army Reserve before building a successful real estate career in the Des Moines area. He also owned and operated Dave’s Tax Service for 46 years and was a tireless advocate for both his real estate and tax clients - many of whom became close friends with him over the years.

Dave’s family was the centerpiece of his life. He and his “lovely, lovely wife”, Audrey, recently celebrated 50 years of marriage. He was a devoted and loving father, and his bright smile beamed as he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.

Dave was a genuine and caring man who made lasting impressions on those who were fortunate enough to know him. He was the consummate
big brother, always offering a helpful spirit and sage advice to his siblings.

Dave’s hobbies included fishing trips to Canada, Hawkeye sporting events, bowling, slow-pitch softball and golfing with his buddies at Hillcrest Country Club. He was a lifelong fan of the Green Bay Packers and Los Angeles Dodgers.

He is survived by his wife, Audrey; children, Mike (Shanna) Schreurs and Angie (Jason) Soliday; brothers, JD (Kris) Schreurs, Steve (Natalia) Halterman, and Tom (Heather) Halterman; sister Kris (Lynn) Siemer; and grandchildren, Zach, Ella, Addi, and Lily. He was preceded in death by his parents, Mildred (Grandquist) Halterman and Marvin Schreurs; and brother Marv Schreurs.

A celebration of life service will be held on March 24, 2018, from 2:00-4:00PM at Caldwell Parrish Funeral Home & Crematory in Urbandale, Iowa. Donations may be made in Dave’s memory to Make-A-Wish Iowa at
