David J. Rihn, age 67, passed away unexpectedly on December 30, 2018 in Juarez, Mexico. He was born on August 26, 1951 in Bloomer to John and Margaret (Mohr) Rihn. He married Rosabel Baguio November 16, 2001. He was previously married to and had children with Cynthia (Dunn) Moe and later to Theresa (Markee) DeRusha.

David grew up farming and had his own farm before becoming a long-distance truck driver. When he wasn’t putting millions of miles on his truck he was cruising on his motorcycle and working on his tractors. He loved a good meal, movies, and truck/tractor pulls. David enjoyed spending time with friends and family and he was always ready to shoot the bull and crack jokes with anyone and everyone.

He was preceded in death by his father: John Rihn, son: Keith Rihn, brothers: Joe Oldenburg and Mike Marquardt.
