David Lee Reeb, 67, passed away in peace surrounded by family at his home on Nov. 24, 2012. Dave was born April 25, 1945, in Green Bay, WI, to George and Alseena (nee Coel) Reeb. He attended Green Bay East High School, where he graduated in 1963. Dave worked his way through college and graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in electrical engineering in 1968. He earned his Juris Doctorate from John Marshall Law School in 1971. Dave's career passion was real estate, and he was most often found rehabbing houses in his paint-splattered jeans and 1985 Chicago Bears hat. He was a firm believer in the importance of hard work, but he also enjoyed traveling to warm climates such as Hawaii, the Caribbean and Mexico with his wife, Michelle. Dave cherished the time spent with his family and golden retrievers, especially at their lake house in northern Wisconsin, where he delighted in boating, fishing, and making s'mores with his four grandchildren. Dave is survived by his loving wife, Michelle Reeb; daughters, Jennifer (Allen) Strehler and Amy (Craig Kurek) Reeb; grandchildren, Matthew Strehler, Marshall Reeb, Mitchell Strehler and Mary Elizabeth Kurek; siblings, Richard (Beverly) Reeb, Donald (Rita) Reeb and Mary Lou Reeb; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents. Visitation for David will be from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, at Burnett-Dane Funeral Home Ltd., 120 W.
