David Legg

March 1, 1951 — December 30, 2022

Sun Prairie

SUN PRAIRIE-- David Legg, 71, of Deforest, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 30, 2022, as Pink Floyd played him into his eternal tropical paradise. This absolute legend was born in Ipswich, England, on March 1, 1951 to Florence Marjorie and Samuel Legg, making the world funnier and wilder than before. He married Rosemary Simmonds on March 21, 1981, and moved from England to Madison, WI, in 1982.

David’s life was dedicated to hard work, mischief, laughter, travel, throwing the best parties, and giving his family the world. Known as “The Gov'nor,” “The Maverick,” and “The Legend,” he made himself known wherever he went. His wild stories, gift of comedy, free-spirited nature, and flirtatious quips will be missed by so many, especially his friends in Playa Del Carmen. David’s motto was Monty Python’s “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”

David is survived by his son, Matthew, and daughter, Danielle Hearn (Duncan).  He was preceded in death by his wife Rosemary.

A gathering of family and friends will be from 10-12:00 PM (noon) on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at Cress Funeral Home SUN PRAIRIE with a celebration of life to follow at 12:00 PM.  Please share your memories of David at www.cressfuneralservice.com.
