David Ochs

CHAMPAIGN – David Paul Ochs, 62, of Champaign passed away at home on Thursday (Feb. 8, 2018).

David was known by family and friends as Dave. Dave retired from Labor Local 703.

He is now reunited with his loving parents, Norm and Betty Ochs; his big brother and sidekick, Bruce Ochs; grandparents, Charlie and Eulalia Ochs, Bill Schafer, Marie and AB Seeley; and his sweet nieces, Kaylin Payne and Gabby Galbo. Last but not least, as we firmly believe, all the dogs he ever loved ran to greet him and showed him the way home. He left behind his sisters, Chris (Dwaine) Keller, Gail (Lynn) McConnell and Sue (Bill) Payne.

Dave's many nieces and nephews will hold on to his crazy sense of humor and fun-loving nature. Our family will remember Dave for his love of books, journaling, biking, dogs, nature, naps and his fondness for sweet treats. We will miss you, Davey; see you on the other side!

A private family memorial will be held at a later date.

Williams Memorial Services Ltd., 1203 N. Market St., Champaign, is in charge of arrangements.
