Was this the same David Fettig with a youtube channel and a video where he demonstrates flipping butterfly knives? If so, someone may have stolen that video and uploaded it to their own channel.

CandleMay you soul rest in peace dave

A.T. on Feb 9, 2013

CandleDave, you were great. It sucks you had to leave at such a young age. RIP.

amandamadhat on Jan 8, 2013

CandleI'm so sorry.

CJ on Jan 7, 2013

Like my father, this man took his life of his own accord. We are each given this life, and though I am very sad for his family and friends, this was his decision. He would be happiest if we celebrate his life, and strength, rather than lament the way he chose to leave. It takes GREAT strength to live, but even greater strength to step into the unknown when this life is not for you. David, you will always have my respect and love.

CandleWhile we are mourning the loss of David, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.

Jacob on Jan 5, 2013

CandleNever knowing this man. Seeing his smile on the other side of a computer screen. I do not know what caused the world to balance on your shoulders, but I do know that you were a warrior, strong and true, for carrying that weight up until the end.

Rest easy and in peace, Mr. Fettig. May you live on in the memories of all those you impacted, even those you have never seen or spoken to.

Walter on Jan 5, 2013

May he rest in peace. He deserved better, yet he worked with the cards that were dealt to him, and he endured pain I couldn't even imagine. I wish his family and friends the best in the future, and I hope David's memory is never forgotten.

Matt on Jan 5, 2013

CandleRest easy, brother.

wes on Jan 5, 2013

CandleI'm a little late to the party but I hope the pain has escaped.

Ross on Jan 5, 2013

CandleDavid you got me messed up bro. I dont even know you but I just heard your story, you got me in tears. I know you feel it was for the better but I miss you and ive never met you. I feel like we could have been good friends. I hope you rest in peace and I really hope it was for the better... Rest well in heaven, David.

Juan on Jan 5, 2013

Rest in peace David.

Zachary on Jan 4, 2013

There never was a wound that time couldn't fix, other than the wound we don't let it fix.

B&J on Jan 4, 2013

CandleI didn't know his name 'till now
Nor that he was dead.
I still don't know what his life was like
Or what words he said
But I believe this man was strong
and I pray that he lives on
In memories, and the hearts he touched
Even when he is gone.
Look at that smile, that gorgeous man
We have surely lost a player
It is not often that I go religious
But I wish to raise a prayer.
May this man, rest in peace
And he from now always be
above life's worries, drama, constraints
May he, now be free.

Katie on Jan 4, 2013

CandleHis memory will live on. I hope your family and friends will be able to find peace by thinking of the good times they shared with him, and I'm sure there were many.

Anthony on Jan 4, 2013

CandleI'm sorry your final years brought you so much pain. I, nor anyone else, can blame you for your actions. It was your choice to make. Alas, the samsara wheel turns indefinitely. May it guide guide you to a more peaceful existence, now and forever.

Dan on Jan 4, 2013

Dave, you were a great guy. I'm sure of it.

it was a shame you felt so dissatisfyed with life

Gabriel on Jan 4, 2013

I didn't know him personally. But after reading through some of the memories here, David seems like such a sweet soul.

Gabriel Hapenciuc on Jan 4, 2013

CandleI never knew you, but you seem to have been an amazing man. Whether there really is an afterlife or not, I hope you're truly happy now. Your family loves you. Your friends love you. I, as a stranger, love you too.

Chris on Jan 4, 2013

Just like Ricardo, I never knew you. Got some info on you on the internet, including hearing things in your own words. You touched me deeply, and I felt compelled to help in any way I could, but by the time I had discovered you, it was too late. You will never be forgotten, and you will never be alone.

Ricardo on Nov 29, 2012

Never physically knew you. But I have seen you on the internet. You were my inspiration when it came to the art of balisongs. You will be missed.

Mr. Kohl on Oct 21, 2012

I remember Dave's smile would light up my class when he walked in. He was intelligent, very funny, and so enjoyable to be around. Mr. Jordan always called him the "Wooly Guy"(I am not sure why), but Dave like it, and the name stuck with us. We would always be smiling about some of the pictures he created on Photoshop. And this was back in the early days when we had one of the few(if not the only) Photoshop programs in the District. Dave was brilliant with computers, but his real gift was his personality.
I still smile when I think about you, Dave.

Ericka Zuehlke on Oct 19, 2012

CandleI worked with David at CUNA and at Doc Sci. He was always so nice and always had a smile on his face. He will be missed.

Roy Vieira on Oct 18, 2012

Dave drove me to my first DocSciU after joining the company. It's hard to believe he's gone.

Chiquita Hutchinson on Oct 18, 2012

David worked for me, on the print team, at Genworth Financial. He was a man of many talents with such a sweet spirit. He will be missed by everyone here that knew him.

Richard Kyrk on Oct 17, 2012

I had the pleasure to work with David for a short period. He was always fun to be around and my thoughts goes out to all of those who stood him near.

William Akers on Oct 17, 2012

BLASTO! (I always started my chats with him in this manner)What an amazing guy - a real whiz on xPression (our document composition here at work), amazingly talented with photoshop (one of his many talents) and I always asked him to show me some balisong tricks whenever he came East. His presence has been missed here at work and now his spirit will be missed here on Earth.

Mike Kempf on Oct 15, 2012

Thanks Dave for sharing you smile and joyful (more crazy goofy with pranks) outlook on life. Knowing you throughout our Fort Atkinson years was a real treat. You always made IT with Tom Kohl class a blast. You were a friend to all and will be dearly missed.

Cress Funeral and Cremation Service on Oct 15, 2012

CandleHis smile was amazing, and he had one for everybody.

Jenny on Oct 15, 2012

Driving around in his Impulse (the 1st of several, I think) just *blasting* the Perry Como greatest hits CD.

Lucinda on Oct 15, 2012

Worked with him at CUNA on the new clasim system. He was a hoot! Really missed his humor when he left. He was a great guy.

Liz Kile on Oct 15, 2012

CandleThe look on his face when I said I was going to buy Nora a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader outfit....PRICELESS : )

Dave sleeping with Nora sleeping on his chest.

Lubke on Oct 14, 2012

Dave mattered. He impacted the people he loved. Beth can use the wealth of their time together to teach Nora & June about their Dad. Memories can be placed in a special corner of our hearts reserved for him and Dave will always be with us.

Bob Kerman on Oct 14, 2012

Lots of Slushies and a broken guitar.
