David Eskestrand Obituary

David Chris Eskestrand was born on April 2, 1948, in Portland, Oregon,

to Chris and Lenore (Dahl) Eskestrand. Subsequently, the family moved to

Northern California where he grew up on a chicken farm around a

multitude of animals. During this time, he enjoyed camping with the

family in the mountains and Redwood groves. While he was in high school

the family moved to Colorado and he graduated from Wheat Ridge High

School in 1965. Dave attended Northern Colorado University, CU Boulder,

and Metro State before settling in Denver.


Dave married Patti Schaner in 1980, they started a family but later

divorced. Dave was a masonry contractor from 1977 to 2000 and after that

undertook property management of his own real estate and the property of

others. While Dave slowed his work down, he never formally retired. Dave

married Jing Li (Jenny) in 2010 and they welcomed their son, Erik, in

2013. Dave was actively involved in, and a supporter of, People House in

Denver, an organization which provides holistic mental health services

and spirituality. He enjoyed art, especially painting and photography,

as well as traveling to see new places. His favorite times, though, were

with his family.


Dave passed away in hospice care on December 1, 2023 after bravely

fighting pancreatic cancer. He is preceded in death by his son Michael

(d. 2021), and parents. He is survived by his wife Jenny, son Erik, and

older brother Thomas Eskestrand. Dave loved his family and friends and

will be greatly missed by them all.
